RAIN PLAN: Should there be short episodes of rain artists will cover their work until the rain stops with plastic sheeting and the music will proceed under the tent and umbrellas on Fawn Street. In the event of torrential unrelenting rain, the music scheduled for the BJA Soundstage will proceed indoors at the Cabaret at Germano’s and the musicians scheduled along S. High Street will perform in other Little Italy restaurants.  Participating restaurants will transform one of their dining rooms into an art studio and drawing paper will be provided or alternatively, restaurants may offer an indoor wall for a collaborative mural.  There will be plenty of art, music, delicious food and spirits to enjoy indoors.
