Old friends and surrealist doctors gathered for another fun ‘Pataphysical Tea Party at Fort Miley in Lands End, overlooking Ocean Beach and San Francisco’s west shore. We loved this wild post apocalyptic setting, with amazing graffiti art and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.
We celebrated good friends and free culture over a cup of tea, sandwiches, scones, jam and a shot of absinthe. Those yummy treats were generously concocted for us by our gracious hosts, Dr. Really and Dr. Helvetica — who shared fascinating insights about the Ohlone Tribe, the first inhabitants of this blessed land — as well as the origins of tea time.
We chose this location because it’s close to the must-see Lands End climate art exhibit at the former Cliff House, which we visited as a group before heading up the hill for this surreal reunion with old pals. We hope to have more tea parties in the beautiful environment that nature kindly provides all around us.
This gathering of the tribe was a good reminder that civilization cannot flourish without the company of good friends and like minds, united in a quest for kindness, intellectual honesty, creative expression and love of life.
Pataphysical Studio guests included: Vickisa Feinberg, Fabrice Florin, Phyllis Florin, Freddy Hahne, Helvetica Lassen Hahne, Geo Monley, Howard Rheingold, Marshall Smith, Rhoney Stanley and Priscilla Wheeler.
