Gallery Hop: A Recap
The best Hop in the history of Hops? The largest crowd I've ever seen & a perfect balance of our regular Hop supporters plus so many new faces (hello, visitors from Fredericton and Moncton!). And everyone seemed genuinely happy. It was Saint John at its most upbeat and positive. Sometimes I see glimpses of our little city being awesome - artists and creatives and art supporters and entrepreneurs all synchronizing and taking a moment to realize that we're doing something relevant. And I heard that the Saint John Theatre Company, James Mullinger, and every restaurant and bar in our uptown had a similarly successful (i.e.: full, sold-out, busy busy) evening. Well done, everyone. Let's do it again.
