New Photo Exhibit Location - Saylor's Restaurant

Sean Saylor of Saylor's Restaurant and Bar.

A couple of weeks ago, I drove down to Marin to pick up my "Beauty at the Bottom" photo exhibit from Rick's Wine Cellar. But a night out on the town in San Francisco with some friends led to meeting new friends and finding a new location for exhibiting a few of the "Beauty at the Bottom" photos. 

Sean Saylor of Saylor's Restaurant and Bar invited me to exhibit/sell a few canvas prints in his famous restaurant. So of course I took him up on it and now a Casa Noble tequila photo, a Partida photo, and a Ultimo Agave photo are hanging at his place. All are available to purchase there. 

While dropping off the prints and enjoying an incredible portobello mushroom enchilada for lunch, Sean asked if I had ever photographed a Cabo Wabo tequila bottle. You see, Saylor's is a regular hangout spot of rocker Sammy Hagar, who started Cabo Wabo tequila. The restaurant even has a Cabo Wabo room with tons of Sammy Hagar pictures and memorabilia in it. I had not photographed a Cabo Wabo bottle so Sean went and grabbed a special one, a giant three litre blue bottle that isn't made any more. I happily borrowed the bottle and I recently shot this cool photo of it:

"Beauty at the Bottom: Tequila 20"

The bottle was empty when I borrowed it so I bought a regular size Cabo Wabo bottle and filled up the blue bottle a bit for the photo. This meant I also had a second smaller Cabo Wabo bottle to shoot, here's what I got from that one:

"Beauty at the Bottom: Tequila Sunrise 10"

Here is a photo of the setup for the blue bottle photo:

The next time you are in Marin, California or more specifically Sausalito, be sure to stop by Saylor's, have a great meal, enjoy their incredible tequila selection, and have a look at some of my art. Thank you, Salud!

Saylor's can be found at 2009 Bridgeway in Sausalito, CA
