A Little Taste of First Fridays on Abbot Kinney
The event has been going on for a couple years now, although a bit under the radar. Like Echo Park's First Saturdays, it's more of a neighborhood event with lots of locals. The concept: local merchants open up their doors a little later than usual for a Friday night and invite musicians and supply wine to those perusing the store -- it's all in the name of community and making the boulevard a more popular place to go shop, eat and see art. And as quaint as Abbot Kinney First Fridays are right now, it's actually quite enjoyable. Although, it could definitely use a map. And to that, one merchant said it's on its way and to watch out -- as summer approaches First Fridays on Abbot Kinney are going to be hot.
