Tonight, I went to one of the hippest (totally hipster inspired, literally I’ve never seen more boys with their hair in pony-tail holders in one location) things that Raleigh does in Downtown and with the local community. I’ve been before, but tonight I was really inspired by it and therefore want to show you what I learned, where I donated my money, and how you can take super cool mirror pictures like the ones you will see below. Oh Geezus, Beezus.
So, every month in the summer time, Raleigh Downtown does this thing called First Friday, where all the local art galleries, stores, venues, artisans, writers, fire breathers (yea, seriously, I was astonished too…especially how they do it with delicate plastic flowers in their hair) come out and participate in selling their work and coming together as a local community to celebrate Raleigh art. I really love it, even though my best friend Jess, who I normally go with, has been in Minnesota for the last six months. We finally got a chance to go again tonight though because she’s back like Britney!
