Hopefully yesterday’s rain and hail won’t return tonight so we can have a nice Art Up Artwalk in Greenwood and Phinney Ridge. More than two dozen businesses along Greenwood-Phinney avenues from 65th to 87th streets will host artists, music and other special events from 6-9 p.m. Click here for participant descriptions and here for a map.
If you’re willing to go off the beaten path just a bit, the new Spindle arts and crafts shop at 7305 Linden Ave. N. is having its soft opening tonight. A number of artists’ work is featured, including Megan Myers…
While you’re there, pop next door to Sugarcomb Salon and see stencils and paintings by Dave Ryan and Laurie Hemingway.
A number of businesses are offering specials during the artwalk. Emma Jean’s Consignments & Antiques at 8554-1/2 Greenwood Ave. N. offers 30%-50% off during the artwalk; Bleacher’s Pub at 8118 Greenwood Ave. N. offers a discounted appetizer or entree; Carmelita has its $5 Happy Hour menu all night; Gaspare Ristorante & Bar at 6705 Greenwood Ave. N. is serving a $22 three-course Italian meal all night; and Taproot Theatre at 204 N. 85th St. has discounted tickets for tonight’s 8 p.m. show of “Brooklyn Boy.”
