PANCAKES & BOOZE & ART, OH MY!

When you think “art show,” you might think stuffy, pretentious, pompous. You might think glasses of Sauvignon Blanc and cubes of expensive cheese.

But you won’t find any of this at a Pancakes & Booze Art Show. Here, the wine comes in plastic cups, and the hors d’oeuvres are flapjacks and syrup served on a paper plate and eaten with a plastic fork. The artists are young and hip, and the guests wait for hours in a line that stretches around the block to get into this traveling art gallery. PANCAKES & BOOZE & ART, OH MY!

Instagram is a constant reminder that I could, in fact, be cooler. Maybe if I just eat enough scrumptious looking brunches…

When Instagram isn’t taunting me with the fact that I’m not having a grand, far-flung adventure on a random Tuesday afternoon, or making me second guess my belief that yeah, leggings are pants, while simultaneously confirming that the amount of stretch clothing items have isn’t equal to their fashion credence, then it can actually be a wonderful thing. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it’s one of the best ways to get connected to the city and discover new things you want to explore, hidden gems you want to peruse, and things you want to consume.

The library currently contains between 8,000 to 10,000 books and resources and is still growing—they frequently get calls from people who have art book collections that need to find a new home.
