Culture Shock: Art, Afro Man and Appetite
There are two approaches to spending your time in Gainesville:
You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in a 3-4-1 Long Island at Midtown every night, or you can embrace your precious time here in Hogtown and go explore.
Every week Culture Shock provides you with a few of the best happenings in the city that don’t involve blacking out, Study Edge or Netflix binging.
Gainesville, it’s time to culture yourself.
MUSIC + NIGHTLIFE
Where: The Wooly
When: Tuesday, April 5 at 7 p.m.
Why: We know you know all the words to Colt 45. It’s almost impossible to not sing along when it starts playing. Chant the words with the rest of the crowd at Afro Man’s concert on Tuesday night.
ARTS + ENTERTAINMENT
Always Already Here Vol. 2
Where: Gallery Protocol
When: March 18 – May 16
Why: This exhibition explores the trend of artists reaching across different mediums to express their thoughts in surprising ways. The exhibition celebrates visual arts and music by brining both forms into one space. For once, you don’t have to look at art without music or listen to music without having anything to look at.
FOOD + DRINK
Embers Wine & Food Festival
Where: 3545 SW 34th Street
When: Sunday, April 10 at 1 p.m.
Why: This premium wine and food festival will showcase a diverse range of delicious cuisines and international wine and spirits. You do not want to miss this rare opportunity to interact with Embers & Spark Chefs and Sommeliers. Tickets range from $106.49 – $159.24
Where: Morningside Nature Center
When: Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m.- 12 p.m.
