Creative happenings this week.

So glad Valentine’s is out of the way. You can make fun of me all you want, but Riverdance was pretty cool, even if I was the last person on earth who hadn’t seen it.

// Thursday
This is a pretty full week starting with the Design Co-op Happy Hour. It’s invitation-only, but let me know and I’ll get you on the list. It’s always a good time. Here’s pix from the last one.

Rebecca Zapen is playing at playing at European Street from 8:30-10.

// Friday
Grotto Homecoming. The past owner of the Grotto, Chad, is making a brief visit to Jacksonville. He’ll be at the Grotto on Friday so I’m certain the bubbly will be flowing. There may be some Eclipse action afterward.

Cypress String Quartet @ The Riverside Concert Series

Great Guitar Gathering @ Florida Theatre – Would love to attend this.

// Sunday
Here’s what I’ve been waiting for. It’s the Jacksonville Film Festival’s Oscar Party @ Five Points Theater. It’s going to be a great evening. $25 all you can drink (even less with the “Jeff & Lisa” promo code.) Expecting several hundred people. Red carpet, Oscar statues, Jesse and Chris aren’t messing around.

Hope to see you there.
