Piedmont Avenue Art Walk


Thursday evening I headed from Uptown to Piedmont Avenue. I forget where I'd heard about it (I think from cool Oakland clothing designers fiftyseven-thirtythree), but Piedmont Avenue merchants have started their own regular event to draw crowds. The Piedmont Avenue Art Walk is the 3rd Thursday of each month. When I got there at 6:30 or so, regular favorites like Fenton's, Dopo, and Cesar were already hopping, but the rest was relatively quiet. By the time I left, things were busy the length of Piedmont, from The Rare Bird up to Amy Perl Photography.

I couldn't stay as long as I'd like to check out everything (and enjoy all the snacks and drinks provided), but I checked out a lot of the 20+ places taking part, and it seemed like people were having a lot of fun. Much lighter on the art the Art Murmur, but still a lot to see and a fun event. A lot of families with kids were out enjoying it, too.

Lots of pictures here:

Update: Things were less fun late Friday night.
