THE VELVET CACTUS

I have found a great new venue to showcase my art.   It also happens to be a wonderful restaurant.   The Velvet Cactus in Lakeview is among one of my favorite new hotspots.   A great patio area with all kinds of funky goodness, and hispanic overtones, with wonderful food, and eclectic mixed crowd.  From families to locals alike, this place satisfies all my needs.   you will find them here…. http://www.thevelvetcactus.com/

I would like to tell you that I have been quite successful with my day of the dead art here…   take some time out of your busy schedule and get yourself a margarita… the happy hour here?  makes everyone happy.  Watermelon mint?  YUM…
