Photos from Midtown Art Walk

Yesterday was fun! Midtown was hopping with hundreds and hundreds of people strolling up and down Virginia Street from Junkee's to Polyester's Costume Boutique. Every business had a little party going, from the Met Life folks on the corner of Holcomb and Roberts to all the new businesses located in Bernie Carter's renovation project at 701 South Virginia Street. Some businesses had djs, some had live bands, my fave two were the Mighty Surf Lords playing at Met Life, and Mojo Green who played at Polyester's Costume Boutique before the fashion show.

The fabulous folks at Caliber Studio in Midtown styling the hair of models for the Burner light-up fashion show

Sup hosted a watermelon bar which was VERY popular

Great art on display at Midtown Eats, who stuffed so much art into their little space you almost forgot it was a restaurant.

Shea's Tavern new outdoor area.

Dreamer's Coffee, coming soon to Midtown!

A sneak peak from within Dreamer's looking out their almost-floor-to-ceiling windows.

Spicy Jack coming soon to the new project on the corner of Thoma and Virginia. Also notice the new Lepori construction sign.
I have a feeling this project breaks ground soon!

The Mighty Surf Lords played at the Met LIfe office on Roberts and Moran.

This is what Midtown looked like from Junkees to the south to Polyester's Costume Boutique...packed!

People were diggin Mojo Green's funkalicious tunes.

Spicy Jack? Interesting.

The Thoma fence had ribbons attached on it this morning that said "MIDTOWN". Made me think that it would be a good idea to see a permanent sign that designated MIDTOWN as you left downtown on S. Virginia St. And also down by Plumb Lane intersection going North. (or wherever the boundaries might be)!

@Wiley: I totally agree! We need midtown arches! One of the things I miss about San Diego are all of the neighborhood entrances. As "the" arch city, we need to beef it up! (although the two we have are pretty cool ...) http://www.aaroads.com/california/images999/fifth_ave_nb_gaslamp_01.jpg http://www.aaroads.com/california/images080/us-080_eb_el_cajon_blvd_04.jpg http://www.aaroads.com/california/images999/park_blvd_nb_30.jpg http://www.aaroads.com/california/images999/india_st_nb_15.jpg
