Tennyson Street First Friday might be the best food-related way to spend your Friday night
Plans tonight? If not, and you happen to be looking for a kick-ass way to get your food and drink on that's a little out of the ordinary, head over to Tennyson Street and partake in some First Friday activities.
A scaled-down version of the busy Santa Fe First Friday scene, the Tennyson street galleries open to the public for viewing, and the nearby restaurants get in on the fun, too.
Hops and Pie, for instance, taps a firkin, a small cask one-off beer, for the occasion each month; tonight, the pizzeria will be featuring Biere de Garde from Left Hand Brewing Company. Start there, peruse a little art, grab a doughnut and another beer at The Hole and maybe cap off your cultural activities with a glass of wine at Tastes Wine Bar & Bistro or a Liks ice cream cone from the Bookery Nook.
The neighborhood could use your support, too. Thanks to a hellish construction project that has made vehicle access to the street between 38th and 44th Avenues difficult, the restaurants and businesses in the neighborhood have taken a hit during what should be the busiest dining season of the year -- and there are months of street repairs to go.
So park a couple of blocks away and walk in -- because the combo of art, beer, food and live music will be worth it.
