First Thursdays

March 1 marks the second running of First Thursdays, the evening of art, music, and culture sponsored by the S.B. Downtown Organization and featuring our town’s myriad galleries, an eclectic lineup of live performances, and food and wine, too. If last month’s event was any indication, this free monthly affair — which is happening for the next two years — will become a time-honored Santa Barbara tradition. To find it, just go out downtown and keep your eyes and ears open.
