With more businesses hopping on board, NoDa's gallery crawl is no longer confined to the area around North Davidson and 36th streets.
Business owners hope people start at the McGill Rose Garden, just outside Uptown on North Davidson Street, make their way north to Amelie's French Bakery and then finish in the heart of NoDa.
French paintings and photographs of Paris adorn the walls of Amelie's. At McGill Rose Garden (where crawls are held the third Friday of the month), sculptures are on view in the garden while the shop offers works by local artists.
And, of course, galleries and businesses near 36th street stay open late on the first and third Friday nights.
Business owners have discussed hiring a bus to transport people to the three stops, but no decisions have been made.
The owners of Amelie's also hope to have a wine license for the bakery by the end of the month and plan to open a patio outside.
