Brooklyn, NY — Better Than Jam, along with the Shops at the Loom, is once again spicing up the neighborhood of Bushwick with its First Friday Event.
"Every month we add a little more to this special event," said Karin Persan, owner of Better Than Jam.
Better Than Jam is planning some great things for the another First Friday event on July 2nd from 7-10pm. Complimentary wine and other refreshments will be served, big discounts from select designers, new shops have opened up at the Loom, and come early for a special musical performance. Kooklil Tsumagari will be giving tattoos and the fantastic Miss Fleury Rose will be doing fabulous nails.
"We have our first group show being installed. Art Guerra, Seren Morey, Bill Page, and Richard Temperio will be installing some wonderfully interested and beautiful pieces," said Persan. "The neighborhood, once again, has introduced me to some talented people. Some members of the Potion Collective, will be demonstrating some of their talents, which can be heard at their open mic nights."
