Love is in the air and First Friday is all about it!

February 1st is here and First Friday has arrived and ready to celebrate with a little bit of love. Whether that love is for a significant other or in my case a love for Art and Culture the time has arrived when we start looking forward towards spring.

I visited several Downtown galleries this past week and have been pleasantly surprised by the art on exhibition out and about. So make sure to come down and take a look for yourself! Remember artists make great pets so adopt one now!

Have a great and safe First Friday.
