5 p.m.-11:45 p.m. SoMa District.
We are creatures of boundless adaptation, are we not? And when 90-degree temps with 58 percent humidity render outdoor hangs positively hellish, do we retreat into our refrigerated caves and forego socialization until Thanksgiving? No, we do not. We just move the party to the sunless hours and load up on churros and Lush bath bombs, a la this party in the South Main District under Friday night’s relatively new moon.
SeanFresh entertains at South on Main at 9 p.m., and most of the area’s businesses will be open late. Esse Purse Museum’s open until 8 p.m. with half-priced admission; the Green Corner Store is open until 9 p.m.; M2 Gallery features its “celestial” show with tarot and astrology themes until 8 p.m.; ceramicist Matthew McConnell’s exhibit “February” will be on view in The New Gallery until 9 p.m.; Argenta Bead Company is running a make-your-own $10 special on lavastone and crystal bracelets; Loblolly Creamery is churning out ice cream sandwiches until 10 p.m.; Dos Rocas rivals that with a churros and ice cream stand outside its doors; Raduno Brick Oven & Barroom is serving a special veggie pizza and a lavender cocktail; Esters comes through with the inexpensive appetizers; and more. Side note, for those into cult-following-worthy cosmetics: Lush, the UK hair and skincare brand Arkansans can typically only gaze longingly at through a computer screen, will be onsite with fizzy bath bombs as part of a pop-up tour.
