Finally Friday Midtown. Get ready for the weekend.

If you went to the Broad Ave Art Walk tonight, you will notice familiar sights. If you didn’t, well here are some pictures.

We arrived on Broad Avenue at 5:40 p.m. and the Art Walk was already well attended.

One of the first things we saw was this:

easter Island metal rocket

Cool yeah? Wait, it gets better later on at night.

Since the girls had not had supper, we stopped in at Jack Magoos. A few notes. I was surprised how big the sliders were. A person could eat one burger and fries and feel full. We actually shared the plate among the three of us. I ordered the jerk wings.

My thoughts? I thought the wings were okay. In my opinion, not as good as Central BBQ.

My wife ordered nacho’s. When the plate arrived, there wasn’t any cheese to be found on the plate. They were out of cheese. Oops. We sent the plate back. Kinda need cheese with those nachos.

After dinner, we headed further down the street. I like hand-made soap. We found THIS new shop:

My heavenly creations soap

The staff was very nice. Buy local. Yes, I purchased some soap. And a present for a friend. Check out the shop at 2593 Broad Ave.

How about some art? I really like this section of the Broad Ave Mural:

Perfect yeah?

And that Easter Island Rocket? They lit the fuse on the rocket at night, and here is what the Easter Island Rocket looked like as we left:
