I've never been to a First Friday.

I've never been to one either, although, I must admit, I am curious. I've heard it can be fun.

I generally don't frequent downtown, except for the library. I did try Salute's once, and the Bistro a couple times a few years ago, but wasn't very impressed with either. Specialty stores with beads, clothing, expensive art and wine aren't something that I feel compelled to go to and make a purchase.

I went to some of the gallery nights when I lived there. Can't remember if it was officially First Friday or not. It was fun. The gallery owners were very friendly and I didn't feel any pressure to purchase anything. Lots of places had complimentary drinks/snacks. Hope it hasn't changed too much!

A couple years back I went there because there was a band playing on the square that I like. There were so many people and no place to parks so I just drove though and went back home.

I went down there last night and nothing going on, but it was raining.

No place to park, all the bars must have been busy!
