If you like art, food, and music, I recommend you hang out in Westbrook on Friday night, May 23. Indeed, despite the previous sentence's seemingly oxymoronic premise, Westbrook artists and BruChu's Arts and Culture Committee have set aside that evening as Westbrook's inaugural Fourth Friday Art Walk.
From 5-8p, artists Jean-Pierre Rousset, Greg Parker, Ian Anderson, Kari Radasch, Caren-Marie Michel, Fred Michel, Mary Brooking, Andy Curran, George Hughes, Ed Zelinsky, and Richard Garrigus will be displaying their works along Main Street and in the Dana Warp Mill. And institutions such as Westbrook Picture Frame and Fine Arts Gallery, the Bakery Photographic Collective, Acorn Productions Theater Studio, the Drouin Dance Center, and the Greater Portland School of Jukado will be offering their artistic wares and live performances for the public's consumption.
Also, to take care of grumbling stomachs, restaurants such as the Frog and Turtle, Freaky Bean, Profenno's, Stockhouse Restaurant, Portland Pie Company, Casa Novello, Fajita Grill, Burrito, Main Street Cafe, Northern Gardens, Siam Square, Angelone's, China Villa, and Thanksgivings will also be participating in the event.
And last--but not least--the Warren Memorial Library will be hosting Sara Cox for a 7p concert as part of its monthly concert series.
Yeah, I'd say it's kind of a big deal.
