Last Thursday. This is a monthly event that takes place along Alberta Street when it gets warm enough to warrant the effort. One of my favorite aspects of this city is its' willingness to just let people be creative- there isn't much oversight or bureaucracy. For instance, Last Thursday spans 15 blocks and is packed full of people selling just about everything- from clothing to hammocks to peanut butter filled dates (2 for a dollar). Plus performers on stilts, bands fully amped, and live theater. You just show up and do your thing without having to ask or pay anyone. It is an unusual display of trust.
Unfortunately Bello and I didn't sell a goddamn thing and felt drained to the core by 10:00pm. A cool event but maybe not my thing.
