GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

The Embarrassing Thing About Going Out of Business -- (Event #27)

Everything goes.... No... ANYTHING goes!  So yeah, I went to The Dad's Garage Going Out of Business Show and afterward took the opportunity to check in with the cast. Let me recreate the experience for you...

Me: "Hey man, how are you doin'? It's been awhile, huh?"
Him: "Hi, fine.  Yeah, the baby is three, now.  What have you been up to?"
[We greet with a mutual hug and I give him a kiss on the cheek]
Me: I answer his question with yada yada about my big adventures and recent escapades. "Wow, having a Daddy as a comedian, I hasten to think what comes out of your little one's mouth."
Him: "Oh yeah!"
[We chat for about 10 minutes and share what we've been doing for the past two or three years and what we have planned for the near future.  He gets the cast together for a post show group shot.]
Me: on my way out and saying goodbye, "Well hey, is your wife still doing photography?"
Him:  "Uh.... you're thinking of Matt Stanton."

Chris Blair is my new best friend! BFF

Ok, ok... so Chris and Matt kinda' look alike and both are actors who share a similar physicality and fashion sense. But what is really pitiful here is that I thought Chris Blair was Matt Horgan who I thought was Matt Stanton.  Um... maybe I need glasses.
