“The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go”
Downtown take I
Downtown take II!
Matt and I biked all around town this afternoon and they we did QUITE a bit of walking! I figured we covered about 10 miles on bike and 5-6 miles on foot – yeehaw!
You can guess who helped me out with the walking bit
Totally chill. Totally fun. Classic Friday night livin’ it up in Cville!
We started our First Friday adventure with the 2.2 mile walk downtown, and to the Public Radio Station for a reception and some chatting
The had a wonderful spread of cheeses and crackers from Feast!
I ate my weight in cheese (just a snapshot of all the beautiful cheeses I tried)
Also snack on the veg!
And had a small glass of vino and just LOOOOOVE those whole wheat Caars crackers!!
Our next stop was Second Street Gallery, which had a nice collection of photographs and interesting artwork
We stopped into Artifacts, but it was closed!!
So we went to Market Street Wine Shop to taste some flavors. Mmm reds.
Lastly we move on to the Garage, a neat space-turned-studio. It’s just an open garage downtown!
And ate some amazing Jam According to Daniel! His jam jars each contain a POUND of local fruit and are the best I’ve had – on par with my favorite Great Harvest Mountain Berry!
A taste of Pollock’s wine
Lots of folks were out and about tonight!
When the crawl was over at 7, we ventured into a used bookstore
And settled at Horse + Hound Gastropub for dinner (with one addition – friend Sam)
I wasn’t too hungry, so I just had a green salad to munch
And helped Matt with his fish + chips + vinegar (vinegar)
We also shared a SCHLAFLY beer!!!!!!!!!!! A Stout! Sadly I don’t remember which kind of stout this was, but being a Schlafly, it was good! My first non-pumpkin one. [Note this was an 8 ounce glass – our server split the beer for us! How nice.]
We ended our fabulous First Friday with a walk to The Corner where we got a huuuuuge tub of Peanut Butter froyo (Matt and I filled up our Arches card!) with gooey brownie!
And played a game of UNO.
