Second Friday Art Walk Downtown Little Rock

Greetings Artists and patrons of

The weather was perfect for the Second Friday Art Walk in beautiful downtown Little Rock. The streets were bustling with anxious art patrons and people generally just out for a well earned good time at the end of their busy work week. The trolleys were glistening by in reds and yellows and as you walked by you could hear music and merriment beaming from each establishment. Their were street musicians, dancers and a living Michael Jackson statue (my personal favorite) as you navigated through the multitudes making you way down Clinton Avenue.

It was a business as usual scene at the local art galleries with wine, soft drinks and appetizers but much to my chagrin, I did not get to talk with any featured artists this evening. Feeling rather vexed we moseyed over to Rumbas for a bite to eat out on the back porch where Barrett Baber supplied a delightful repertoire of originals and his renditions of many famous artists. His acoustic guitar sounded awesome and his voice was reminiscence of Dave Mathews. All in all, a great time was had by all who were there.

I had Rumbas’ Cuban style Ahi Tuna with black beans and rice which was absolutely exquisite and the top-shelf margaritas’ were outstanding. We stayed for two or three of Barrett’s sets and bid beautiful downtown Little Rock adieu. So until next time, we hope your glasses stay filled and your expectations are gratified.
