Find a New Favorite Artist

Every second Saturday, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., the shops, restaurants, and artist studios along York Boulevard in Highland Park open their doors to diners and looky-loos for NELA Art Gallery Night. Browse antique and custom-wood furnishings at Matters of Space, or scope out quirky pieces from up-and-coming local artists at Co-Lab Gallery. All that walking is sure to work up an appetite. Thankfully there’s no shortage of craft beers (the Escondite), cocktails (Sonny’s Hideaway), and good grub (the York, Maximilliano) on the route. For a taste of vintage HP, grab a sizzling pork-topped masa disk at El Huarache Azteca.— LESLEY BARGAR SUTER
