I’m all tangled
day and sky –
the end of winter

Hey, we went to the Art Museum yesterday (so Liam could look at photos) and as we were leaving we saw the bus and they asked if we wanted to go on an art detour; we said no because we had to take the boys back to Phoenix, but I wondered exactly what an Art Detour entails. What does an Art Detour entail?
It’s kind of like First Fridays only without the crowds. Participating galleries and studios open their doors and encourage foot traffic. Some of them have food and live music or other demonstrations.
We went years ago and followed the art detour map and looked at a bunch of artsy stuff. This year, though, we parked kind of in the middle of things and wandered a little lost in the heat. There was construction and things were kind of spread out. We looked at maybe four or five galleries. Maybe six. There was a mix of some good art and a lot of amateurish art. There wasn’t much in the way of crowds and it got uncomfortable going into small galleries with the artists/gallery owners sitting there watching us look at their art.
Also, yesterday, there were dozens or hundreds of men and women in bridal gowns everywhere.
When, after about two hours, we headed to Bliss Rebar for an early dinner, we found it packed with drunken “brides” with more pouring in the entire time. It turned out to be some local club which holds an annual March of Brides pub crawl to benefit St. Mary’s. It was pretty entertaining people watching. My kilt doesn’t make a ripple when there’s brides, brides everywhere! (and maybe four bridesmaids).
Oh, and our server had to leave mid meal; she had a bursting cyst! She was in much, much pain. Also, there was a new hire on her first day on the job, shadowing people and rolling utensils into napkins. She had a look like “What have I gotten myself into?” At one point, she asked another server, “Was it this crazy yesterday?”
Did I mention all the brides?
Oh, it’s Brides of March, not the March of Brides…
