Karangahape Road's First Thursdays events have never quite happened every month – there are probably too many moving parts for that. But every time they do, they underline what makes K Road different from anywhere else in Auckland.
Last night's event was no exception. We came and wandered along while the art wandered past us. We bought some knick-knacks, ran into friends at at Rebel Soul Records and ate excellent burgers from Burger Bar in St Kevins Arcade, which has reached a good equilirium under its new ownership and looks better than it has in many years. We didn't try the silent disco downstairs, although it was clearly very popular.
There were families and old people and it sometimes seemed that everyone who wasn't part of the art was taking pictures of the art. It's my favourite place to take photographs (all pics taken with my iPhone SE) and last night's "light" theme made it even better than usual.
Did I mention that I bloody love K Road?
