The new gallery season that exploded all across the city last week simply could not be contained to one night. A lot of folks figured they’d outsmart the system and go with this Saturday the 14th instead — only to discover that while it’s not as intense as last Saturday’s high of 65, we’re still talking about over 40. We’ve divided up the routes west and east with the border roughly around Highland, and added a dip south with the west, and a hop north with the east. These are their stories.
