The gallery crawl is like Halloween for adults! Going gallery to gallery looking at art and tasting apps and wine 🙂
We started the night by walking 2 miles to downtown and meeting UVA medical student and KERF reader, Liz, at the Second Street Gallery.
I shy away from photographing the art in respect for the artists, but I have no problem photographing the food!
Second Street always has something good – tonight it was catered by the X Lounge, including fabulous fried polenta, spreads with breadsticks and crostini and balls of goat cheese in apricots!
Oh, and the art was amazing as well!!
We next stumbled upon a man, wearing a chair, walking on a treadmill and being blown by a fan. If that isn’t art, then I don’t know what is!
Many of the galleries have music – like this blue grass band!
We enjoyed a glass of Italian red and smoked salmon at Fellini’s
And sushi at Skylight Studios!
We ventured to McGuffey, which we always get to when the food and wine are gone
But not the chocolate!
Faith and I have a tradition at McGuffey of attending the $5 dance performance. Tonight’s was a soloist who did a 15 minute, 3-movement piece.
The husbands waited oh-so-patiently
When the crawl wrapped up around 7:30, we decided we were hungry and that we should try a new restaurant. We decided on Rapture!
Glass of wine fit the mood
Since I’d had nibbles already, I wasn’t too hungry, so I got a salad with smoked salmon on top that also came with the most amazing candied walnuts and blue cheese. I LOVE CANDIED WALNUTS AND BLUE CHEESE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was fabulous –
Matt and I just walked the 2 something miles back home in the cold dark, and I’m happy to be back in my house
