First Friday art walks led to Third Friday art openings. Soon, a veritable calendar soup of days were devoted to exploration of our fair city. We think the only night we're not booked is the second Tuesday of next August.
One event we've penned on the calendar is the Melrose Crawl, a chance to shop our favorite Seventh Avenue shops after dark. From 6 to 9 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month (with events booked for October 18, November 20, and December 18), shops like Hollywood Regency, Paris Envy, and Rust and Roses will open their vintage doors to the neighborhood. One word of advice: With so many of these stores offering amazing deals on new and antique furnishings, we plan to drive, not crawl.
