East Village Uncorked in Pompano Beach
December 12, 2011 by James
East Village Uncorked will start up again on January 6, 2012. This monthly event takes place on the 1st Friday of every month in Harbor Village and the Atlantic Square Shopping Center from 6-9 pm; the one for December was cancelled.
The event is sponsored by the Pompano Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). Local printing companies have provided a Discovery Tour Guide which will ensure you don’t miss anything; the guide is available at participating stores in Harbor Village, Atlantic Square Shopping Center and the CRA Information Booth.
More than 15 restaurants which feature international foods take part in this event each month. Participating stores offer tastings of wine from around the world and many feature in-store specials and door prizes. There will be three stages set up which will feature live entertainment. There will also be interactive art projects and an artist’s exhibit in Harbor Village. There will also be the possibility of buying works of art and crafts which must be “original, handcrafted items.”
All area artists can apply to show their art at East Village Uncorked. They must send the CRA three photographs of their work. Those accepted are allowed a 10 foot display area and must bring their own chairs, tables, etc.
An event such as this is a good way to get people who live in the area to visit Harbor Village. Often when you live in an area you don’t tend to visit places that are considered tourist attractions. It helps to broaden your horizons.
