Polish Hill Arts Festival Today: Art: Crafts: Poetry and Post Apocalyptic Films @Gooski's

Remember, when Gooski's was the only place people knew about on Polish Hill--other than that gorgeous massive church. The story was this was a place for a few bars and people who now drank to much to leave the area. This was never exactly true, but it also wasn't an obviously, happening place either.

Today, it's all goin on there. 12-8 PM in Polish Hill.

Here's a preview with more details on Blogki, The Polish Hill Blog
