Arts Cafe

It is time for Near Northwest Neighborhood’s 10th Annual Arts Cafe on Sunday, November 4th from 10am to 5pm. NNN plans this event as an opportunity for the public to see newly renovated homes as well as show-off the neighborhood (and, hopefully, convince you to move in). Having seen one of those renovated homes, I can say firsthand that NNN knows what they are doing. So where do you go? You will find welcome tents at California & Cottage Grove and at the south end of route on Lindsey & Cottage Grove. This event is free and open to public. Local artists, displaying water colors, textile arts or playing music, will fill the homes. You can even enjoy food at the food tent (this is the only part that is not complimentary). Grab a friend and enjoy the day in the Near Northwest Neighborhood. For more info, check out NNN’s webiste:

My Heart Beats for Art Beat

Too corny? Okay, I get that. But you really should check out Art Beat tomorrow (Sat, Aug 25). It’s a great opportunity to support local talent – from visual to performing and culinary artists. Michigan Street will be filled with paintings, photography, sculptures, jewelry, food, music and so much more. My friend Carl said that there will be an interactive wall mural. Cool, right? Did I mention food and photography? Grab some friends and plan to spend a couple of hours checking out the music, food and wares. The event runs from 11am to 6pm. Parking downtown is free all weekend – did you know that? So what’s your excuse now? Hope to see you in the heart of downtown tomorrow!
