— The iconic image of John Lennon and Andy Warhol behind the bar in Bar Louis, at the Hotel Fauchere, was taken by Christopher Makos, who was one of Warhol's closest friends.

Makos is coming to Bar Louis for the unveiling of 10 more of his images that will hang there forevermore. They are of pop icons from the 1970s and 1980s, including several from the "kissing series."

Everyone's invited to the unveiling and reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13, at Bar Louis, located 401 Broad St., Milford. Refreshments will be served.
