Another BIG weekend coming up for NPy and Local NPrs - a transbay extravaganza of nocturnal education/entertainment events coming up - see last weekend's offering (post is below), in case you missed it - those events are still in play, too! I'm beginning to feel every bit the Social Director for all the Nocturnists out there (yet another of our many free services . . .)!
First of all, Troy Paiva's release party for his new book - "Night Vision: The Art of Urban Exploration" - is being held at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco on Friday, August 1st.
Just across the bay on the same evening, Joe Reifer will be holding court at the opening for the show: "Toy Camera Dreams" at Lucky Ju Ju's vintage pinball arcade, in Alameda.
Just so you know, Andy Frazer "scooped' us again on both of the above - on his NPy BLog - so, as to not waste your time here ("we know you have choices . . . ") you can read a full description, get addresses and times from this link.
Finally, again ON THE SAME NIGHT, John Vias will be at the opening reception for the "Glimpses of Time" exhibit at the Joyce Gordon Gallery from 5:30 - 8:30 pm. The show runs August 1-30, 2008, and the Gallery is located at 406 Fourteenth Street in Downtown Oakland, steps from the 12th Street BART station.

Let's see now, for those keeping score, in August we have:
Nocturnes . . . in Berkeley?
Night Sky spying witnessed - again, in Berkeley.
UrbEx photo documentation/fine art in San Francisco.
Another of John Vias's "Blue Nocturnes" in Oakland.
Joe Reifer, dream-states, and Pinball in Alameda.
And, Gotham's darkest hour, at theaters near you - that should keep you busy!
