Welcome to August! It feels like the summer is flying by, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had while the weather remains warm. Gallery Hop sounds like a good option for the day, with plenty to see, do, eat and drink. And don’t forget that your hopping throughout the district could have just gotten a little easier with the addition of the new CoGo Bike Share system that launched earlier this week.

Here’s a couple of ideas to get your hopping started:

1. Celebrate National Mead Day With Bros Drake

If you weren’t aware, it’s National Mead Day today! And Brothers Drake all day long with a special release of reserve meads, free tours and demonstrations, free waffles from Taste of Belgium, and live music from Eric Nassau, Uptown Buddha and SassafrazZ. More information about the celebration can be found by CLICKING HERE.

2. Get a Sneak Peek of Kifle Shoe Boutique

The newest Short North retailer is the Kifle Shoe Boutique, located at 1203 North High Street. The store is planning a grand opening later in August, but for Gallery Hop will be open with a limited selection for a sneak preview of the new store. Stop by between 11am and 8pm if you want a look. More info can be FOUND HERE.

3. Take a look at Contemporary Mediums

The Marcia Evans Gallery opened a new exhibition last night called “Contemporary Mediums“, featuring the work of Bernice Koff and Cody Heichel. The show runs through Septemeber 28th, but you can get an early look during Gallery Hop tonight.

4. Check out Rivet’s Say What?

Rivet is opening a new art exhibition tonight titled “Say What?”. The show is a tribute to beloved characters and their famous quotes, featuring the work of artists Katie Arends and Kent Grosswiler. The artist reception takes place from 7pm to 10pm and more details can be found HERE.

5. Round it out with a stop at ROYGBIV

Artists Jackie Brown, Garry Noland, and Kathleen Thum are featured in a new show at the ROYGBIV Gallery at 997 North High Street. There’s an artists talk at 2:30pm and an opening reception from 7pm to 10pm. CLICK HERE for more info.
