Then come back to the Slice on Monday to read about Downtown Grocery Shopping! Next week, we’ll also be discussing the ultimate living green in the city experience and have a special comment on the election. BE SURE YOU VOTE!

    Artist Mike Whiting Opening Today at Plus Gallery!

    The fourth solo exhibit at Plus, 2501 Larimer, by Mike Whiting opens tonight with an artist’s reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Whiting works in steel and automotive paint to create sculptures that will speak to you as art.

While that acronym doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, the namesake art district of RINO (River North) sure does. There must be a connection!
