After we've taken in the art receptions, seen the exhibits, and artists workshops for those that are so inclined we can go relax and chat to wind down the evening at one of the local establishments on Grand AV with a glass of wine, beer or coffee and desert or a salad & pizza and compare notes on art and the world. Should be a cool evening. Vinz wine bar may be the perfect place to chill and unwind, corner of Grand & Kalmia.
