Northside Second Saturdays.

We ventured out this afternoon to check out Northside Second Saturdays. On the Second Saturday of each month, you can snack your way through the Northside business district and see the latest art exhibits, have a meal, listen to live music and top it off with drinks. We were eager to check it out for the first time…

Our Second Saturday started on a very somber note. Sarah Cole, owner of Tickle Pickle, was hit and killed by a car crossing Hamilton Avenue on Thursday. There was a makeshift memorial outside of Tickle Pickle that gave us both chills and brought tears to our eyes…

It’s terribly sad beyond words. After paying our respects and drying our eyes, we continued down Hamilton Avenue to Market Side Mercantile

There’s some really great stuff in there. It’s a like a mini City Flea right in our backyard. There are definitely some very reasonably priced pieces that we could easily find a place for in our house. We’ll be back for those very soon…

We made the decision to come back to a handful of little shops and galleries to get lunch first…

We ordered chips and salsa, couple of tacos and the jerk chicken quesadilla at Django Western Taco

And the Michigan game was on TV! As we were eating some pretty ominous storm clouds started to appear on the horizon…

And it started pouring…

And it was really coming down out there. So we drank margaritas at Django while we waited out the storm. Did you know Django has a great little back patio?

Eventually, the rain stopped. On the way home, we ducked our heads into Northside Tavern

Northside Tavern was hosting a performance by the School of Rock Mason celebrating Nirvana’s Nevermind…

It was REALLY very impressive. We listened to those kids belt out a few Nirvana songs, and we decided to head for home…

On the way home, the sky was just amazing…

It was a really fun Saturday even despite all the rain. We had planned on swing ing back through some more little shops, maybe hitting Urban Artifact or The Littefield and maybe Arcade Legacy: Bar Edition. Hopefully, it will be a little bit drier for Second Saturday in October. 🙂
