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.
