I attended the Candlelight Walk last year, and it was one of the most enjoyable holiday events I participated in. All of the merchants — Milton Kent Antiques, Another Time & Place, La Mariposa, ART is ART, Pandemonium, Emeralds to Coconuts, Again & Again and Gypsy Wagon — will stay open late this Wednesday, Nov. 12 from 6-9 p.m. and offer finger foods, beverages and discounts.
The stores are busy but not too crowded, since the event may be Henderson's best kept secret. Last year, Pandemonium had the most amazing seven-layer dip I've ever tasted; Milton Kent Antiques had food catered from The Porch; and Fish City Grill, which hadn't yet opened, was offering gumbo and coupons for free appetizers. So many new restaurants have sprouted since then, I wonder if more will be out Wednesday night to get exposure.
Either way, the shops on Henderson are darling and well worth the time to browse through, so why not a night with free munchies and good deals?
