During the year's first F.A.T. Friday trolley hop tonight, the restaurant It's All Greek to Me is offering bellydancing lessons (sexy), Kaviar Forge and Gallery is conducting forge tours (toasty) and the Wine Rack has vino to pair with chili (tasty).
Free trolleys carry revelers up and down Frankfort Avenue from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. During that time, be sure to check out East Meets West Global Treasures (2400 Frankfort Ave.), which specializes in furnishings from China, India, Thailand, Vietnam — too many countries to list, really. (There's also plenty of fleur-de-lis decor.)
Owner Everett Crudup was on business in China during the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. In his motel's lobby, he purchased an original painting depicting a scene from Chinese New Year, which takes place this year on Feb. 14. Curdup has since created postcards of the image. Not sure if this is always the case, but he gave me a few free of charge when I went in recently.
