Well looky lou this Friday is the first Friday of the month, which means it’s time for the downtown Trolley Hop! Now is as good a time as ever to explore the quirky shops and restaurants on Market and Main Street where you can browse art, eat food, and pick up the fiercest jewelry. Like this little trinket I just picked up from contemporary art and jewelry shop FLO:
During the Trolley Hop, FLO opens up its gallery with complimentary sangria as you’re browsing the jewelry. Is this your first hop? There’s a couple things you should know. The First Friday Trolley hop takes place from 5p-11p and encompasses Main and Market Street all the way up to the Glassworks building by Roy Wilkins. Park and ride the trolley for free. Get on at any Trolley Hop sign up and down the streets. Parking downtown is free after 6 pm. Here’s some of what’s coming up this Friday:
- Against the Grain Brewery is having musical guests Sarah & Scott performing at 9 pm.
- Actor’s Theatre is offering up free appetizers as your browse the 18th Annual African American Art Exhibition and mingle with artists.
- Watch live glassblowers at the Glassworks blow cool February pieces, like Hershey kisses, while enjoying the cash bar.
- Cruise over to the newly renovated Whiskey Row lofts and pay $10 for a magic show. Shows are at 7:30p, 8:15p and 9p. This guy performed at President Obama’s inauguration!
