On Saturday evening (Sept. 18) D J Fuzz kept the After Hours Party jumpin' @ Point! Bar at this year's Greenwich Village Art Fair. This 62 year old art fair is one of Rockford's premier arts events that benefits the Rockford Art Museum. The Kortman Gallery sponsors Point! Bar with all proceeds going to RAM. Sarah Lindvall and her friends also appear in the video along with Dan Minick (D J Fuzz).
See & buy great art @ Greenwich Village Art Fair. Relax over a colorful ARTini and meet intriguing people at this year's Point! Bar all on the grounds of the Rockford Art Museum this weekend, September 18th & 19th. Point! Bar features bartenders Mike LaLoggia, Jr on Saturday, and Chris Doyle and Chad Hobbs on Sunday. AND this year, you are invited to an AFTER HOURS PARTY on Saturday evening from 5 to at least 8pm @ POINT! BAR featuring great music by D.J. FUZZ (Dan Minick), and bartender Dennis Horton. Point! Bar, located right in the middle of the art fair, is brought to you by Kortman Gallery. All proceeds benefit the Rockford Art Museum.
The new Main Street turned out to work very well for us for this year's OTW. It provided a pleasant strolling area for festival goers and great people watching for our outside Lounge patrons. Speaking of our patrons, it was so nice to see so many of you here over the weekend having such a good time. We appreciate your business, and it is good to enjoy such a wonderful event. We thought this years line-up of performers at OTW attracted a more sophisticated and interesting crowd.
We also appreciate the efforts of all OTW staff and volunteers who helped make this the cleanest OTW ever.
The streets and sidewalks were kept clean during the entire festival with no overflowing garbage bins anywhere. At the end of the evening the festival grounds looked great even before the final clean-up crew came through!
Most of all we would like to say thank you to our bar manager Chris Doyle... bartenders Chad Hobbs and Erin Knoll, store manager Nancy Froelich, and Michael LaLoggia (set-up), and Don Bissel and Kyle Bevers (tear-down). Without their generous help we would not have been able to have such a successful weekend.
Hope to see you all at the Greenwich Village Art Fair, September 18–19 @ the Kortman Gallery "Point! Bar."
