We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that July is Artown here in the 775. “WTF is Artown,” you ask? Well, Artown is a month-long orgy of sights and sounds and tastes and smells. We bring in musicians, painters, sculptors, dancers, singers and more. There’s stuff to do all over the area and a lot of it is free. Now THAT’S our kind of price range.

But the funny thing about hosting Artown is how open the local crackers are to all these freaky peoples. We’ve got tie-dyed hippies, brown-skinded brothers and sisters and all other sorts of artsy types. Normally, those folks are the ones that get run out of town on a rail. Not in July. Nope. In July, we welcome ‘em all with open arms. Come August though, they’d all better be headin’ back to Cali or wherever the hell they come from…they don’t tolerate fur-ners much ‘round here.
