Quilts for Sale

More from North Davidson St. (NoDa)

We had an early dinner at Revolution Pizza (formerly the Mellow Mushroom). Tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella salads were followed by little 8" pizzas. The crust, made in house, was outstanding! On the recommendation of our server, my dh tried an English Ale: hobgoblin, and pronounced it a winner. The restaurant has over 25 ales, stouts, pilsners, etc. on draft!

After dinner we walked around, drinking in the warm night air and the wonderful and lively atmosphere of the arts district.

Here are some of the sights: Beet Gallery, fresh flowers, a Smart car, graffiti, wild posters, my kind of political stickers, great graphics, colors, sounds and LIFE!

We were delighted to see a quilt (lower right) by artist and friend Sue Alvarez in the McGill Rose Garden gift shop. Her style is instantly recognizable.

I love when there is an arts district to walk around when the weather is nice. Too bad we don't have one where I live. I'm jealous!!

Thanks, Rayna. This is a very cool, but threatened, area. Hope the artists can hold on against the developers. So far, so good. Ellen.
