It may be a bit wet out there, but it’s still First Friday nonetheless! And what a First Friday it will be!

  • photo(2)Gallery360 has a new home on our second floor (take the elevator up or enter up the stairs in the front room), and tonight we unveil our first juried exhibit – The Landscape. The call for entries brought in over a hundred entries from across the country, but our jurors narrowed the field down to pieces from 34 artists in a variety of mediums and artistic styles. In addition, the exhibit features a gallery of artwork created by local elementary-aged students also themed around the landscape. The opening reception takes place tonight from 5-9pm. Stop on out!
  • We’re once again holding our monthly First Friday raffle in the store. This month’s drawing contest involves a good bit of creative artistry wrapped up with a heavy dose of holiday cheer. As always, we’ll award prizes for the staff favorites!
  • While you’re in the store, you can help us create a prayer flag by filling out a wish, hope, pining or prayer for a change you’d like to see in the world today. Prizes will be awarded for staff picks on the best, worst, funniest, Christmas-iest, craziest, meanest … you get the drift. You can fill them out at the bar, too!
  • SHSWe had such a blast with Second Hand Suits last night that we’ve invited them back for a second night playing in the pub! If you’re not familiar, these young lads offer a unique mixture of jazz, blues, old timey and, special for tonight, Christmas!, music… From original tunes to favorites from Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and more, you will surely be up dancing by the night’s end. Catch them in the pub from 8-11pm.
  • Finally, starting today, if you spend over $50 in the store, you will get a special token for a FREE BEER in the pub! This promotion runs through Christmas Eve, offering a great way to take the edge off after the stress of all the holiday shopping. Of course, you must be 21+ to earn the free beer.
