First Thursdays Gallery Walks (suspended)
CADA’s website indicates that First Thursday Gallery Walks have been suspended. Hopefully they will resume soon… 🙁
It’s getting to be that time of year again…indoor activities! I like galleries and museums, plays and concerts during the winter. It is a nice counterpoint to summertime fests and beer:)
People who live or work near River North, West Loop, and Fulton Market district can enjoy free gallery walks on the first Thursday of each month. Presented by the Art Dealers Association of Chicago, the galleries in these neighborhoods stay open from 5- 7 pm so you can explore the neighborhood galleries.
2011 dates: 3 November, 1 December
If you want to add a meal, both neighborhoods have (or are near) some great restaurants. BeerBistro is my favorite bar in the West Loop (it is the half baked cookie, I admit it)– so that would be my recommendation if you want food after touring the West Loop galleries. (I haven’t been to the Fulton Market Galleries yet; anyone have any recs on where to eat near there?)
