Each week, Friday Night Live will highlight art and culture events featuring music, poetry, visual art, book signings, etc. in restaurants, bars, shops and other venues. The FNL series is a combination of free-admission events sponsored by Friday Night Live and cover-charge events presented by local businesses, promoted through Friday Night Live stakeholders.

This will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday with special comments and recognitions at 5:45 pm at Connected Fair Trade located at 117 S. Santa Fe.
