To be held the first Friday of every other month (beginning with February), the event will last from 6:00 – 10:30 PM. Local bands and DJs will still be featured, as well as free savory appetizers, a cash bar, and art tours and activities. The Blanton Café will offer themed dinner menus in conjunction with B scene, which will include special tapas and wine pairings.
The February 5th B scene will focus on Desire, the topic of our winter exhibition. There will be a TEXAS themed party on April 2nd with two-stepping and more, and a special Game Night on June 4th.
