So this last Thursday was the first time I was able to make it up to Austin’s First Thursday event. On South Congress Avenue (SoCo as it’s known locally) the eclectic mix of shops stay open late and tents are setup for all of the jewelry and other handmade items for sale.
It wasn’t quite the art event that I thought it was going to be though. Coming from Phoenix where First Fridays is full of open galleries and live art events, this was not even close to that type of event. But it was filled with many poeple filling the sidewalks to grab a drink and socialize after a day of work.
I found a few interesting things to take photos of though.
There are event posters plastered all over the place and these caught my eye.
This entire wall was filled.
I ran into Hey Cupcake in their Airstream. And I think I’m in the wrong business because they’re costs of doing business can’t be too much and they’re charging at least $2.00 per cupcake until they sell out for that day. They looked really yummy! Maybe there will be a Jefferson Todd Cupcake stand coming soon featuring chocolate cupcakes with metallic silver frosting on top. 😉
And at the end of the night Homeslice Pizza has a mean thin crust margherita pizza. But don’t try them on Tuesday because they’re closed and that would be a very sad moment.
