Uptown Saturday Night, St. Augustine, Florida

An old friend of mine lives in Florida and she’s been trying to get me to visit since we reconnected. I’ve loosely planned trips to conventions and conferences, but nothing really came together. Now, I think I’ve found the perfect event and activity to take me to Florida. Not only will I be able to get together with an old friend, but I can get some antique shopping done, hear some live music, attend a couple of books signings and enjoy the refreshments. On the last Saturday of November, which is the 24th (I’ve already missed the October 27th one); there will be festivities and special deals during Uptown Saturday Night in St. Augustine.

Uptown Saturday Night is a favorite end-of-the-month event that takes place from 5-9 p.m. Besides the perk of free parking provided by the Mission of Nombre de Dios, each participating shop features an open house with refreshments. Can you imagine strolling along San Marco Avenue with music in the background, a treat in your hand and a great find under your arm? (That's great St. Augustine shopping) Ahh, just the imagination is relaxing.

Even though there’s a lot going on, I think I’m gravitating toward the books and arts events. I love finding a great book and meeting authors, and viewing art is such a treat. So, if I disappear around the end of November look for me in St. Augustine, Florida, for Uptown Saturday Night on November 24th … maybe we can meet there!
