We love the creative spirit that thrives in Newark. We wanted to make sure you knew about the Newark Arts Council’s city-wide 10th Open Doors Studio Tour, which kicked off yesterday. This weekend is the best time to explore Newark’s galleries, curated shows and artist studios during this great event. The Tour culminates on Sunday with a parade leading to an Art Festival at Washington Park. For more information and a full schedule of events, visit the Newark Arts Council’s page.
And if all the artistic stimulation makes you hungry for something delicious, you’re in luck – because it is also Newark Restaurant Week. Explore the variety of cuisine that Newark has to offer – whether you’re in the mood for Portuguese in the Ironbound, New American in the Downtown Arts District, Rodizio or Sushi – you’ll find great deals at Newark’s best restaurants.
Take advantage of the free shuttles which will be stopping around the city all weekend, and please don’t forget to be green – Newark is highly accessible by public transportation. See NJ Transit’s website for more information.
