#1: First Fridays
Since my first year at Rockhurst, I have regularly gone to First Fridays in the Crossroads District. First Fridays takes place, exactly as stated, from 7-9 pm the first Friday of every month. Countless art showrooms open up their doors to the public to view the art. Additionally, many restaurants in the area (Christopher Elbow Chocolate among them) have special deals at the time of this event for the public. Street artists and performers also make appearances throughout the area making it a whole evening affair that can be incredibly enjoyable for many students, visitors, and residents alike. Over time, my friends and I developed a pattern of visiting favorite showrooms and favorite areas to walk through. We would also plan the event around dinner or an evening watching movie favorites for a great start to the month!
#3: National World War I Museum
