Art Walk.

Downtown Dallas had a little Art Walk on Main Street today... I absolutely love the concept, thought process, & effort behind it. People just rented out the metered parking spaces, set up booths & got everyone out of their offices/ building for just a bit to enjoy the weather. Such a nice change of pace.

There was live music to be heard, small flower/ succulent gardens, a miniature recycled library to "take & share" from, & small art installations to see. Many of the booths passed out literature on their cause or focused on recycling efforts for the city. They had a Hatch Chile booth where you watched the chilies being grilled, steam bathed, and peeled.... and oh it smelled heavenly. I feel like I learned a little bit about the variety, as well. The company funding this was passing various typed of chilies to try, prepared in different ways. {Ahem, the panko battered, deep fried, bacon & melted cheese topped Chile was my fav... no surprise there.}

It was a fun little getaway from the day on our lunch break... yummy pizza for lunch, art browsing, and hatch chilies for dessert. :) Now I'm ready for the weekend.

Happiest of Fridays! Go check it out this weekend if you get a chance & live in Dallas... I was not able to find information online about it, but maybe you'll have better luck!
