Let's just get this out of the way right off, I know that's not how you spell Phoenix...
Now that that elephants out of the way, let me tell you about one of my favorite dates to date.
It's a little thing called First Friday and it happens once a month on, you guessed it, the first Friday of that month.
It's an event in Downtown Phoenix from 6pm-10pm and people set up craft booths, art galleries stay open, and The Phoenix Art Museum is FREE!
We went to go see the craft booths and listen to the street musicians, but got pulled into the Art Museum due to this lovely starbeam of glass right inside the entrance. Can you blame us?
Before we knew it, it was 10PM and we had spent our whole evening browsing the art, discussing our favorites, pretend shopping in the gift shop (and a little for-reals shopping), running into an old friend from high school, pretend decorating our dream house with various out-of-our-budget art pieces.
It was such a wonderful night filled with conversations that wouldn't have come, but that we were in such a creative place. Sometimes environment can really bring things out of people...It was enchanting, and I felt so good at the end of the night, I couldn't stop smiling.
It felt like the beginning stages of dating, when you're just so enamored with the boy you are with and the great time you're having with them. It was lovely, and we can't wait to do go back next month, maybe next time we'll actually make it to the street event. But then again, maybe we won't...
Any great FREE events in your city that we should check out, should we ever be visiting?
