Hop on this gravy train before it chugs away from the station! The San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum is hosting a unique Art After Dark event this Feb. 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. and guess what? It's totally, 100 percent, not-even-joking free! Not much is truly free in this topsy-turvy world, especially "date night." Grab your sweetie and come hungry, because this opening event welcomes the joint participation of some of the Railroad Historic District's most beloved dining venues, including Bon Temps Creole Café, Café Roma, Del Monte Café, My Thai Restaurant, and Sally Loo's Café. This diverse selection of eateries—all of them steps away from the museum—will provide tantalizing appetizers and sampler platters for you to nosh on while you fill up on culture galore. Check out a slew of eye-opening paintings as well as an old-school photo slide show and large screen video projection showing experimental video art. Enticed? Coupled with the ample, (free) parking, this will probably be the easiest thing you choo-choo-choose to do in 2018.
