Our date will include a Final Friday art walk which will showcase the finest art, food, and drink that Lawrence has to offer. The date will start with tacos and Mai Tai’s at Limestone. From there we’ll soak in the art and culture at various galleries including the Phoenix Gallery, Lawrence Arts Center, Wonderfair, Cider Gallery, Seedco, and others. After that we’ll pop into Art Emergency where I’ll play a song I wrote for you on the piano. Then, we’ll stop into Bon Bon for a cocktail before heading to 715 for dessert (doughnuts). After that we’ll finish the evening with a romantic stroll down Mass street where at some point I will sword fight the evil black knight in your honor. After vanquishing this nemesis with my inspiring swordplay, we will celebrate at the Bourgeois Pig. Here, the incomparable Adam Lott will make us a cocktail inspired by our night of victories and memories which will fill our dreams forever.
