Can we all take a moment and think about what a huge difference just a few years has made to the Plaza District? It’s been pretty amazing to watch all the new, locally owned businesses move into the neighborhood and thrive.
One of those thrivers is Velvet Monkey Salon & Vintage Boutique, which is celebrating its second anniversary in the district tonight during “Live on the Plaza.”
From 7-10 p.m., the cool salon and boutique will present “Monkey Shines,” a fashion and art show. Admission is free and will include art and jewelry from local designers and artists, along with music by DJ c.hill. At 8:30 p.m., a fashion show will strut its stuff, featuring hairstyles and fashions created by each Velvet Monkey stylist.
Other “Live on the Plaza” events for tonight include a soft opening for the restaurant/pub Saints, open houses, featured artists and music in the many shops.
