Transcript Departure and Arrivals Victoria Smith, sometimes editor of the Houston and New York underground press, hopped a plane for Minneapolis as October began, and she is now enjoying the autumn colors and frosted mornings of her hometown. Vic served 10 years in Houston, helped runSpace City News with Thorne Dryer at her side. She had been working temporary jobs in Houston and considered entering a convent before she accepted a position at the U. of Minnesota. She said on her last ride to the Houston airport that she liked best about Houston "the Rice Hotel, Sakowitz, crepe myrtle, Fred Hofheinz, the Galleria before they added that second layer, the Gulf Building before the sign was taken off, St. John the Divine's choir, St. Anne's altar - and, especially, I like leaving Houston." Her dislikes, after a decade of consideration: "The Spanish Village and Mexican food in general, beer, chicken fried steak, Houston's provincialism, most of the retail outlets and its gaucherie. Houston is a hard town — it's at least as hard to enter this city as it is to move to Manhattan." • The New York Deli in the Galleria has spawned the N Y Cafe Bar with variety shows, sketches and a little night music. The waiters are real jokers, not the usual amateurs you get while waiting for a table at Tony's. Becky Bonar of the Comedy Workshop helped them put the show together, if that's any recommendation. Primo's on Smith has kicked out a wall, put in some new floor tiles, added a little precision to its Mexican menu, and seems to be trying to increase the speed of its table turnover. You can't help but ask why, as you hear the nerve- splitting heehaws from the polyester knit- wits at the next table. Do owners Louis and Nona Vasquez want to have a lot of little Ninfettes all over Houston? Ah, nothing succeeds and debases the menu like success. Niko Niko's has given birth to Mama Eleni's. Freud would have had fun with that even if he didn't care for the best drive-in gyros in Texas, nor the grape-leaf specialties at Niko's mom's just across the way off Montrose .Mama Fepokakis has set up her $4.95 steaks and broiled flounders in a comfortable old house about a hundred decibels quieter than Zorba's (but still lively) and offers Greek wine and, for the ambitious, a $10.95 shiskebab that will transport you to the Elysian Fields, she claims. Two of the best cooks in Houston, Cheryl Robideau and Melissa Bondy, are opening up a concession at theMain Street Theater. R&B specialize in these wicked little 1000-calorie pasteries, with rich fillings and thick crusts, as well as gourmet coffee. They will have goodies for sale before the performances and during the intermissions of the Israel Horowitz one- acts, currently running at Main Street in the Autrey House. Bondy is a student in the UT Graduate School of Public Health. Robideau is an artist, secretary of the Equity Artists Association and also the editor of a new book by Michael Schreiber, Training to Run the Perfect Marathon. Hurricane Sports in Rice University Village had the author's reception (with champagne, not Gatoraide) Schreiber endorsing copies of his chatty, humorous, but thorough how- to book. Schreiber's appendix — the book's — contains blithely contradictory remarks such as "Always Run with People Better Than Yourself: this will make you try harder and make it more difficult to goof off" and "Always Run With People Worse Than Yourself: this will build your ego and give you someone to lord it over." But the book is a first-person, insider's approach to the long-distances and hell, you got to think about something while vou are out there looking silly, don't you? The big cheese at the Streetfarmer's Coop is undoubtedly Dr. Leon Atlas. He is responsible for the many new domestic and imported delicacies being offered by the membership store on Waughford, and he is ready, willing and able to talk cheese with anyone who leaves him a note at the place. In real life Atlas is a pomologist, a student of fruit trees, but he will make whey for curds at the drop of a slicer. The unsung heroic people who have seen the Coop through the blistering summer and the reviving back-to-school and work period are its recently elected Board of Directors: Bill Boykin, Arthur Minetta, Larry Schwartz, Marilyn Marshall Jones, Janet Nichel, Jane Nelson, Jane Bozeman Clark, and Juliet Clark. Guess Who's Coming to Houston And Going Over to Arlington The Houston Women's Art Caucus is co-hosting with the University of Houston an October 23-26 convention called the Mid-America College Art Association Conference, bringing in approximately 800 delegates from 28 states. Breakthrough readers are invited to attend the sessions. Keynoter Lawrence Alloway, one of the best known art critics in the j nation, a populist, will give the keynote address, "Women as a Source for Change," at the Hyatt Regency. Panels to be presented include "Women Artists: The Private Lives, the Work, and the Cultural Milieu," moderated by Lynn Randolph. Speakers include Eleanor Monroe, author of The Originals, Muriel Skuro of Rice University's English Department, and photographer/critic Martha Rossler. Suzanne Blair will moderate a panel called "The Feminist Critique: A Reassessment of Critical Methodology as it Relates to the Women's Art Movement." Alloway, Rossler, Monroe and Eleanor Tufts, art historian from SMU, will speak. "The Future of Women's Art Organizations" will be moderated by Gertrude Barnstone. Art and cultural activities will be held a- round the city in connection with the conference. Davis Hickman, University of Houston art department (749-1506) has complete information. "Pioneers Then and Now: Women Innovators" will be one of six major topics of Womanfair, the third annual conference of the South Central Women's Studies Association, scheduled Oct. 18-19 at the University of Texas at Arlington. In all, there will be about 150 panels, workshops, performances and exhibits with more than 250 participants from across the country. The intent is to present a conference with the aura of a country fair, broad enough in scope to appeal to all women. Also, scheduled are pertinent performances such as "The Trial of Susan B. Anthony" by Celynn McDonald-Jay of Fort Worth and exhibits dealing with early women labor leaders and how women made their own soap. The opening address will be given by Ann Richards, Travis County Commissioner. Other highlights of WomanFair include the premiere by actress Stella Stevens of her documentary film The American Heroine and a concert by Alivela jazz quintet, on Oct. 18.
