Happy Hump Day Everybody!

It's a Wonderful Wednesday in the Faubourg St. John!! The merchants are hosting an evening of local art openings where you can meander from business to business, viewing cool local art, sample a little cheese and light food and enjoy our fabulous spring weather (Esplanade and Ponce de Leon).

Cafe Degas and Nonna Mia will be holding openings as well and please stop by Fair Grinds to check out “Gluttony” (this is not an opening, the show is already in progress).
And while you're out there have dinner at Santa Fe' Restaurant (3201 Esplanade) and check out the silent auction. You can help out Nuf-Nuf the dog with his vet bills. He was hurt badly in a hit and run accident...a portion of tonight's dinner and auction proceeds will go to help him out :)
