If your Fourth of July weekend wasn’t already busy enough, we’ve also got Gallery Hop to throw into the mix. There’s quite a few exciting things going on tonight, so we’ve got our top five picks to help you take in the sights and sounds of this month’s event:
1. Art – Rivet
Tonight, Rivet hosts the opening of a new group exhibition featuring Bec Winnel, Cherri Wood and Jonas Löfgren. The reception runs from 7pm to 10pm and Rivet can be found at 1200 N. High St.
2. Shopping – The Attic
The Attic was originally located next door to Basil Thai (the store is also a creation of the owners of the restaurant), but has just finished migrating up the street to 1190 N. High Street. They’ll be open for Gallery Hop from noon to 10pm and offering free cookies if you stop by after dinner at Basil Thai.
3. Dining – Deepwood
Technically, Deepwood is located a block outside of the Short North at 511 N. High Street, but their special $25 three-course tasting menu tonight will make it worth the walk. The menu (PDF) includes duck & foie gras sausage corn dogs, lobster-topped white pizza, veggie shish kabobs and more.
4. Shopping – The Candle Lab
Candle Lab celebrates the grand opening of their new Short North location today. They won’t be open prior to Gallery Hop though, so don’t try to swing by early. The new shop can be found at 751 N. High Street.
5. Entertainment – Brothers Drake Meadery
Tonight, Brothers Drake will host Felecia Dunson, a live graffiti artist with musical support provided by The Beauty of My Land, Hounds to Bindles and DJ Teen Fiction. Brothers Drake Meadery is located at 26 E. Fifth Avenue.
What else are you looking forward to at Gallery Hop tonight?
