Arts Alive

We held an Open House/Art Show/Housewarming/Jam Session at the Coat Shop during Eureka's Arts Alive on Saturday night, March 3rd. The first Saturday of every night, Eureka's galleries and shops stay open late and feature local artists and musicians, along with wine and food.  It is one of our favorite things about living in Old Town Eureka (second perhaps only to sea lion sightings in the bay).

 We featured the art of several Hospice nurses that I work with, and the photography of Peter Carlson.  We thought a few friends would drop by, we serve some wine and cheese, and be in bed by nine.

Eureka had other plans.

We had a great time!  We brought lots of people upstairs for tours of the space, which was our first time  having anyone besides our friends/work crew inside.  It was incredible to see peoples' positive responses to the loft.  We got a few inquiries about renting the first floor, and met lots of our neighbors, including the owner of The Local, a new beer bar around the corner.  Score.
