I love SideBar as a place to grab an excellent cocktail and hang out listening to DJs who still sling vinyl (quel throwback!), but I also adore the rotating monthly art shows there. A few months back, they had a series of killer Lalo Cota art, and now there's a collection of super-fun and funny food-themed art by monster-obsessed local company Steam Crow, a.k.a. the artistic duo Daniel and Dawna Davis.
These snapshots -- taken in the dark on my phone -- don't do the work justice, so stop by, see them for yourself, and buy one before they're all gone. The show is up until next First Friday.
