Saturday on the Square

12 May

McKinney was really hopping today. I started out my day at Coffee2 for our weekly writing group that meets at 10am. A new bakery called Sweet Spot opened inside the quaint little coffee shop. Yum!

Afterwards, I walked around, and stopped at Snug on the Square to see if any friends were having lunch. I checked out the art exhibit at the MPAC, scooted over to the Garret Gallery, and went home to feed the dogs and let them out.

It was Second Saturday and election day results and festivities in the evening. So, after I took care of the dogs and had dinner, I went back to the Square. I ran into dozens of friends and went to several art gallery receptions. McKinney’s art scene is alive and thriving.

After a lot of visiting with artists and friends, I wandered over to the election countdown. The street was blocked off, tables and chairs were set up, and the candidates and friends waited for the results. Downtown McKinney has such a small town feel and the Square is the place to be.
