There’s no better way to check out the art (and the shopping) on Abbot Kinney Boulevard, located in the heart of Venice, than stopping by on the first Friday of every month. The event starts around 6 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. The neighborhood merchants come together to feature the best artists, gifts, products and music. And, of course, beverages are available.
