June 3, First Fridays in Bixby Knolls
2011-06-01 · By Editor
First Fridays on June 3 will get us all in the pre-summer mood with an overflowing plate of fun from the dessert buffet. The district continues to bring the monthly programming of untraditional fun, hijinx, and plenty of “the unexpected.”
Ingredients for the night include: Mobile art stations, 80s dance music, DJs, spoken word, jazz, improv comedy, Timstrument, community drawing, tarot cards, drag queens, face painting, First Books, antiques, piano man, Big Red Bus, and the Knolls Ranger.
Councilmember James Johnson’s “First Books at First Fridays” at the Dana Branch Library begins at 5:30pm featuring with special guest reader the Knolls Ranger.
We will initiate a new program called “Seniors First! at First Fridays” with the help of the Long Beach Shakespeare Company and Don Knabe’s office sponsoring a bus to bring senior citizens from Gold Star Manor to enjoy all of the festivities of the event.
Stop by Bella Cosa (3803Atlantic) from 6:30pm – 8:00pm to find all the information about First Fridays, maps, business info, and restaurant recommendations.
When the businesses start to close, “First Fridays After Hours” begins. Nino’s Italian Restaurant, The Factory, and EJ Malloy’s go late into the night with food, drinks, and great music. Why go home early? Stay out and continue the energy.
Dine on Art-Lantic Avenue at one of our tasty restaurants then grab the Big Red Bus that will transport you venue to venue from designated stops at the participating businesses.
