Arty Evening

So here in Tallahassee on the first Friday evening of every month there is something called "First Friday." This takes place at Railroad Square, which I guess could be called the "arts district." On First Friday a number of studios, warehouses and a couple of storefronts occupied by artists are open to the public, and usually a band plays as people mill around. Rumor has it (i.e. he told us) that a friend of ourw recently started working in one of the studios and would have some work on display last night, but though we circled, we never found him. Still, pleasant to wander in the nice spring weather and look at pictures and jewelry, and some cool wooden sculptures.
Tamara and I left our group a bit early to go to Down Below Barnicle Bill's and see our friend Dara do spoken word as the opening act for a visiting singer/songwriter. She did well, but I sometimes forget how in the real world, people just keep talking while you perform. The same thing happened during the singer, though I think both were well received. Today I'm going to the Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin' Festival. More on this soon.
