If Friday night bar crawls leave you feeling sluggish on Saturdays, this weekend might be time to try an arts crawl instead.
On December 14, 6-9 p.m., the Chinatown North Arts Crawl takes you on a tour of the latest neighborhood to break full-force into the local arts scene.
With so many spaces on the menu, it’s made for arts appetites of all shapes and sizes.
Start at the Asian Arts Initiative with a double-feature opening of the exhibitions Shut Your Trap!! and Visual Arts Network/National Performance Network 2012 Annual Meeting Exhibition.
Pop over to First Friday hangout Vox Populi, featuring five shows jam-packed with everything from robots to outer space. Celebrate the annual art auction at collaborative studio Space 1026, with all bids starting at $5.
Take time to unwind at the Fabric Workshop and Museum, quench your thirst with drink specials at Trestle Inn, and dig in for the evening with a final stop at performance space Underground Arts.
With no cover charge, it’s one crawl that will leaves you minus the morning regret.
