“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
Free outdoor music events are everywhere in the summer months. We can bring our chairs, some snacks, water or other libation and just sit back for a couple of hours and leave the worries at home. Sometimes you run into friends. If you check around on the web you can find several nearby events every week. Then you might have to make a choice.
One of the newest ones around here is 'Fridays In The Park With Abe'. Held at the wonderful space in front of the Gaylord Building. First Friday of the month. That's this week - August 3rd. There is food available - a food truck (wait- Joey's Hot Dogs??? oh boy!) or get a carryout from the Public Landing Restaurant, or bring your own. 7 - 9 pm.
Come early. Visit the IL Museum across the street and Gallery Seven on the second floor of the Gaylord Building. Then - Let's go dance!
