Our little city has a tradition called First Fridays, and it is awesome! Everyone comes out to the little center of the city and walks around. On this night the galleries stay open, shops don't shutter as early, and our college town becomes just a bit more sparkling and vibrant for the night!
My friend Morgan and I had a really great night! We started the night off at Tasty Harmony, the local vegetarian/raw/organic restaurant that caters to people like us with obnoxious food allergies.
After that we headed to Mama Said Sew, one of my favorite shops in Fort Collins.
Angela is amazing, too!
They host classes and will answer any sewing questions you might have. If you head here, make sure to stop in there!
Afterwards, we headed to a tea house for a cup of tea. The fall weather is here, at least at night, so it's a great excuse to get something warm and comforting to drink.
On the way back a girl name Margaret was doing free bad portraits. I took advantage of this and got one done.
I love it and I'm so excited about it! I'm going to frame it. You can check out more of her less hastily drawn stuff here.
Margaret turned out to be my neighbor, so we're going to get together for tea one of these days.
We headed to Gallery Underground and met up with a few of our friends there.
My friend Andy has a space there, and it was good to see him and see his recent work.
After that we headed back to my house for Nutella doused pecans and more great conversation.
What a great night!
