I am laying out preliminary plans for a more interactive meetup experience by taking advantage of the ever-popular Old City First Fridays and then having dinner at vegetarian-friendly, local-and-seasonal cooking kitchen of Farmicia.
It will be Spring (not that we're complaining about today's First Friday weather--very spring-like in February!), hopefully the weather will be nice to take gallery walks around Old City, enjoy some good conversation and good art, see the lively streets and street vendors, then head on over to Farmicia, which is only a block or so south of Market St on 3rd St, very convenient to the Old City art galleries.
I will keep the First Friday gallery walk optional and plan on having dinner reservations at Farmicia for 7:00pm so those that want to skip the galleries can meet us up directly at the restaurant at 7:00pm. If you get there early, try some of their drinks--they're good, and likely on a First Friday special.
