Steve Rose, owner of Williamsburg Event Rentals, and a pretty awesome friend of mine, along with Jenn and I during a wine crawl lull.

The Gallery Crawl in Williamsburg is an awesome, yearly event in which you pay for a ticket, grab the wine glass handed to you, start at Quirks of Art in High Street and start your crawl. With over twenty stops this year, it was an event not to be missed. The cool thing about the crawl is you don't have to walk anywhere except into the galleries. Buses make routine stops between galleries of art, wine and delicious foods. 

Quirks of Art started and rounded out the event with a bang. Headlining the Crawl was The Hark. These folks can play! 

Don't miss it next year!!
