Dinner, drinks, and a little art collecting.
Finally, some multi-tasking you can look forward to.
That's the concept behind Studio Sundays, which combines two of our favorite things about Fort Point — Louis DiBiccari's restaurant and bar Tavern Road and the local artist community — into a monthly end-of-weekend gallery event that let's you drink in the whole scene, in more ways than one.
Sure, maybe you've strolled through a few open studios in the neighborhood before while sipping wine from a paper cup. This is better: every fourth Sunday of the month, a different local artist is invited to display their works for viewing and purchase inside Tavern Road's colorful digs on Congress Street.
Whatever your walls need, you'll find it here: comic book-inspired drawings and watercolors from illustrator Patt Kelley, who kicks things off this Sunday; sharply observed portraits from photographer Natasha Moustache in February; and reclaimed wooden frames by Bill Phaneuf, maybe for your own artwork.
And while your purusing the wares, don't forget to pick up something from Tavern Road's in-house artists behind the bar — seriously, we'd hang the Down & Brown (rye, fernet, benedictine, maraschino) on the wall at our place if we could.
Talk about having good taste.
