"It's the first of the month, get up, get up, get up ... It's the first of the month, wake up, wake up, wake up..."
OK, I'm through reminiscing about Bone Thugs N Harmony.
But it IS the first Friday of the month, and that means gallery crawl time! Charlotte Historic Southend Gallery Crawl is presented by The Silo's of South End. Here's a list of the participating galleries, and they recommend starting off at Charlotte Art League, 1517 Camden Road. 6 p.m.-8 p.m.
On the other side of Uptown is the bi-monthly NoDa Gallery Crawl, centering around and near 36th and Davidson streets. You'll find several restaurants and pubs, a deli, a cute coffee shop, a dog bar (humans welcome), wine bars, live music venues, a few boutiques and shops and several galleries all within a very few of blocks. And a tip that I learned from Twitter: Carolina Raptor Center will be bringing by a couple of their birds to The Boulevard. 6 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
