Abbot Kinney First Fridays most recently dropped the bomb of eating, shopping and playing on Abbot Kinney Boulevard on Friday, March 6, 2015!
The AKFF Blog (aka Abbot Kinney First Fridays Official Website) was there on the scene and shot photos at Velvet, Ruti, Wylie Wilson, Ananda, Heavenly Couture and the launch of Me Undies. Plus photos of the new Food Truck courtyards on Palms and Santa Clara Ave., side streets off of Abbot Kinney, closed to serve lotsa hungry peeps; that in addition to THE boulevard, yes, you know the name with Nitropod and a host of others. There was also the outdoor market with jewelry; we loved Lisa’s booth – see the slideshow.
The market was a bit smaller as part of the space was used for the concert with Crown Mob under an outdoor tent. The AKFF gives a BIG UNLIKE to the band’s personnel at the door, who hassled us when we came to shoot some pics. Actually there was one person who was quite be-atchy! Really!
Abbot Kinney First Fridays is coming to town next Friday, February 6, 2015!
