A DAY AT THE RACES
by Charlie Finch
I started out last Saturday at Salomon Contemporary for Meghan Boody
's 47th birthday party, congratulating Linda Yablonsky on her stirring reportage from Tokyo for Artforum
and comforting Meghan's son Toby, whose pet frogs she commandeered for the centerpiece of the birthday cake table, placing them in a tiny bowls next to live mice in cages, a definite discouragement to one's sweet tooth.
