Escondido Art Walk Saturday Night toasting the town with sights and sounds, gratis Hors d’Oeuvres and a splash of craft beer or wine. Ground Zero, Grand Central Station, stage right is Escondido Partnership for the Arts, sponsor and exhibitor of the finest in local art.
Across the Street Person Pocket Park, stage left, a long lanky fellow with a bass and percussionist scores the hit of the night. He’s Tony Gwynn striking the 4.5-hole with precision. Ike Turner NOT striking Tina but the bassist of hip notes with songs named the likes of Escondido Yippie-Cay-Yay and names that escape the mind if not the soul.
Wielding songs to delight, Chris Swann’s wife swoons to the bare-bones beat attracting a crowd of fellow dancers in front of the magic window at Art of Distinction Gallery. Bees to honey, hit the boom box and rattle those petards.
Street art is meant literally here, all the way from the 7-11 to Seventh Heaven with lifestyle stacked along with heartfelt embers of home and admonitions for the uninspired.
We’ve said enough. Second Saturday of each month along Escondido’s Grand Avenue. Between five and eight, or nine, o’clock; be there or be octagon.
