Tips for Enjoying the First Thursday Art Walk in Laguna Beach

Adios November, hola December. Friendly reminder for those of you who live here in Laguna (Lagunatics) that today is the First Thursday Art Walk. Things get underway ~6PM, and wrap up around 9 or 10. Maybe we'll see you out on the town, sucking up a little art, along with the free hors d'oeuvres and Chardonnay.

The secret to a good art walk (I've learned) is five-fold:

continued

1. Get an early start, before all the yummy treats are gone.

2. Wear comfortable shoes (we have lots of galleries to visit)

3. Wear a jacket you can easily peel off inside the galleries, cuz it's usually chilly outside this time of year, but the galleries themselves get toasty, due to all the hot lights (directed at the art) and warm bodies (looking at the art), and the poor ventilation most galleries have. Hard to enjoy the art when you're sweating your butt off.

4. Don't dress too sharply, or the sales people will come after you.

5. Be sure to visit the Laguna Art Museum (corner of PCH & Cliff Drive) cuz they always have cool exhibits and normally charges a $10 entrance fee on non-Art Walk days. (My favorite is the Peter Blake gallery, right across the street.)

If you need serious food, more than hors d'oeuvres, hit up La Sirena, downtown on Mermaid street, near the library. Best Mexican food you ever had. May I suggest a salmon sope (gringos never order a sope, pronounced "soh-pey"), the chicken tortilla soup and a strawberry-watermelon drink? Yummy.

Why do I feel like I'm forgetting something? (I hate that feeling.) MORE info.
