First Friday (Feb 2012)

It’s First Friday and Art Walk in Downtown Bend and the Old Mill District tomorrow: art galleries and other businesses stay open late to showcase art and often live music, and many also offer complimentary food and wine. The festivities run from 5 until 9pm and with the weather we’ve been having lately, I can’t help but think it’s going to be super busy tomorrow night.

The Downtown Bend link has a great list of the¬†participating¬†downtown businesses, and if you want to travel between downtown and the Old Mill you can hop aboard the GETIT shuttle: it runs a free service between destinations from 5 to 9:30 so you can get back and forth without having to worry about driving and finding parking (especially if you’ve had a few glasses of wine!).

And, if you have kids ages 3 through 12 there is childcare offered at the Pottery Lounge from 5 to 8pm, presented by the School of Enrichment. For $20 it run from 5 to 8pm and includes Pizza Mondo for dinner.

So who’s heading downtown for Art Walk?
