i ventured into phoenix by train tonight, excited to attend
my first, "first friday" event. first friday is an art walk
held in downtown phoenix on the first friday of each
month. thousands were out touring galleries, studios,
cafes, coffee shops and pubs. the vibe was fantastic;
the artwork, wide-ranging; musicians played in the streets
and on porches, and there were more than a few
interesting characters out and about.
