They have a central table set up for featured local artists, and when one of the finishes a piece, they tack it to the wall with a price sticker on it. The art is super reasonably priced — our night it was anywhere from $1-$25 per piece.
Everyone else sits wherever with their sketchbooks. I haven’t drawn ever really, but I figured out a workaround.
Go do this. Fun.
More on Go Travel:
Austin is one of my favorite places, mostly because they put melted cheese on everything. My friend and longtime business partner Laura Mayes grew up in a little town outside Austin, and she always knows where to get the very best melted cheese, and fried catfish, and margaritas, and sushi. Mmmm, margaritas and sushi. Check out her Go Travel list of Things to Taste in Austin.
And then ignore the scale when you get back.
Do you like to dance? Oh man, Jamaica is so into you.
Of course, it’s also cool if you want to nap on the beach with a rum drink next to you. (What’s in your cup stays in your cup.) Here’s my Go Travel list of ten things to do in Jamaica.
Chicago is one of my favorite cities, there’s something very pragmatic about it that’s missing from San Francisco and New York. Also, cheesy popcorn. My friend Meredith Sinclair calls Chicago home, and this week on our Go Travel inspiration list, Meredith is sharing a few Chicago favorites. Go look.
Are you heading to Chicago soon? If you have any musts, let us know in comments.

I’m heading to L.A. this weekend. And next weekend. And if the weather is soothing I may just stay there on the beach, gawking at thinner people.
Fortunately for me, Rebecca Woolf lives in L.A. She’s the author of Girl’s Gone Child, and I met her via video when we were doing Momversation together. (I still cringe every time I type that show name, but here we are talking about our boobs with Dana Loesch. Sexy times.)
I’ve mentioned Rebecca before, but I haven’t mentioned that she was one of a handful of friends who was always there for me through my divorce. I feel totally myself with her, and she’s person who taught me to love Los Angeles, despite my innate Nor Cal antipathy for the land that steals our water.
In the next couple weeks I can’t wait to stay up late having too much wine, talking about boys, and exploring Los Angeles together. Bex put together a list of her favorite places in LA for our Go Travel, so have a look and maybe add a few to your Life List. See you there.
I’ve done a few Mighty Girl posts over the years on things to do in the city if you only have a few days here, but we just set up a Go Travel inspiration list on Go Mighty. I compiled my San Francisco musts and posted them in hopes that you’ll add them to your list. Go have a look.
