In receipt of an email from Mark's List, I decided I might like to attend the following:
The following text provided elaboration and a good laugh. (The bold highlights will direct your eye.)
This Thursday, May 8 OAGproductions and Halo Lounge invite you to experience the transformation of Halo Lounge into the exhibition, "Art of Life." An Art - Photography - Projection exhibit featuring some of today's well known diverse photographers. This will be the first Art Project this dynamic team embark on. The art of life will take place the second Thursday of the every month.
The Art of Life is unlike any other event, raising awareness of art in Miami while including a sheik social environment like Halo Lounge. Known best for its long, lavishing white walls, Halo sets the mood for an exhibit that is creative and innovative. Come and mingle with local artists, scene regulars and industry residents whom have similar interests within a positive, fun and trendy environment.
The inaugural exhibit takes place from 7pm till 1am Thursday night and is open to the public with no admission all night long. Complementary Champaign from 7pm until 8pm with drink specials throughout the night
I can overlook the smallish mistakes in the first paragraph, chalking them up to the writer's bubbly excitement about the event.
I have less sympathy for the next paragraph. I would however, like to lavish some praise upon the writer for his use of the word "lavishing" in a literally erroneous but artistically justified way. It's the sort of thing you or I might do when we cannot decide between "lavish" and "ravishing". We'll just be polite and pretend to think that the writer intended this device.
I suppose, given our dalliance in Iraq, "sheik" would naturally prevail over "chic", its correct but poultry-conjuring ancestor. And, I can almost forgive the writer becoming flummoxed in the undertow of his sentence beginning with "Come and mingle with", and feeling the need for "whom" instead of "who". Almost.
But I am thoroughly delighted with "Complementary Champaign", surely referring to a set of similar political angles deployed by the Hillary faction while stumping (stomping?) in a grapey region of France.
