Dollar Oysters, Sumo Hour and Sexy Roller Derby
The weekend will not cry in front of Barbara Walters.
We feel obligated to mention that there will be art on this art walk. But with $1 oysters at Bar Crudo, $2 PBR at Madrone, half-off pizza at Little Star (from 5 to 7pm) and two-for-one bottles of sake at Tsunami, you won't be obligated to play the role of the starving artist.
Drop by Friday and you'll look on as roughly 100 different artists take hour-long shifts sketching whatever comes to mind. With craft brews and tacos on hand, we're predicting a fair amount of carnitas still lifes.
