Game Day at First Thursday on Main

Don Zurlo Reality check:  Columbia is both a sports town and an arts town.

And tonight First Thursdays on Main will be shouting that out loud and clear when a dozen or more arts venues will be showing the Carolina game alongside one of the best collections of arts and vendors and exhibitors this event has ever seen.

Starting at Tapp's Arts Center, where you can grab a beer and check out the opening of Figure Out, a beautiful exhibit of nudes expertly curated by Molly Harrell and Billy Guess and sponsored by Planned Parenthood, you can wonder on up Main Street and, this month, in addition to some fine music, visual arts, adult bevs, and a One Columbia cruise ship-vibed party, you'll also be able to keep tabs on the game.

Unlike the subjects of the visual arts at Tapp's -- Main Street has you covered, whether you're a sports fan, an arts fan, or both.
