1 Degree of Simon Draper

Late last year, Simon Draper mentioned that he had a friend that was about to open an art materials store in Denver. This past Saturday, As I was leaving the Denver Art Museum, I was given a card by a man promoting a new art supply store that was holding a grand opening over the weekend. I continued on my way, but then I returned to the man, and asked if the owner of the store might be from NY. He said, not directly and that she moved to Denver from Steamboat(Springs, CO.) I told him that I now live in NY state, and blah blah blah. He asked whereabouts in NY. “Beacon”, said I. He said “Oh, do you know Simon Draper?” And I was like, “Tchyah!”
