MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR SUNDAY JUNE 30TH

Can I tempt you for some pre 4th of July ‘Murica Themed day drinking for a good cause? My friend and I are putting on a charity event at Golden Isles Brewing June 30th from from noon to 3pm.

The cost to get in is $20 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Friends of Strays. I’ll be sponsoring it and giving everyone two drink tickets. There will be a few different raffles and also some snackity snacks from Mazzarros.

Wear your most ‘Murican attire cause the Freedom meter is gonna be off the charts. See you there!

Events This Weekend

Dome Night: Dali Alive 360°

I have always wondered what that new dome like thing was that they built on the front lawn of the Dali Museum. Today I learned that they do 360° art shows inside of it. Here’s a link to one this weekend!

Second Saturday Artwalk

The Second Saturday Artwalk consists of dozens of art galleries that open up their doors to the public the second Saturday of every month. A good place to start is The Factory where they will be hosting this event.

From their event page – ” Join us for Second Saturday Art Walk at The Factory! We’re excited to present an array of gallery openings and exhibitions, interactive storytelling activities, film screenings, and more.
