Probably one of the most inventive times for art, the action and abstraction genres that gained popularity after World War II by Jackson Pollack and Willem De Kooning, having influenced countless others after them, are explored in this exhibition of their work and the leading artists since them, from 1940-1976. Now that it’s getting warmer out, what better way to celebrate than with some BBQ. Jimmy’s Bait Shack is known for their BBQ’d meats, smoked in house. The menu is all Southern favorites like po boys, catfish, fried chicken, along with burgers. Though it’s small, Cavatappo Wine Bar packs a mighty punch, offering an amazing selection of wines from all over the world for under $10 a glass. With more than 40 TVs featuring sports, Ship of Fools also has darts, pool tables, and video games.
