Create, Recreate 

Online shopping is cool — you can find practically anything you fancy on the Web, including some stuff you didn't even know you wanted — but it's still not as rewarding as shopping in person. When you're at the point of purchase, you can make sure the color and the fit are right, you can get an accurate feel for size and shape, and you're able to check for quality and authenticity. Plus, you can take your goodies home with you right then, which is always nice. Even nicer still is having fun while you shop, and the Big Ass Indie Art & Craft Show not only has lovely handmade items from area folks that you can see and feel in person, but it also makes your shopping trip more than just that. This shopportunity becomes an experience with live music as well as eats — hey, shopping can really make you hungry! The Mad Art Gallery (2727 South 12th Street) hosts the craft event from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday (this is the night that Leslie & the LY's play), 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday (July 31 through August 2). Admission to the craft show is free; visit to learn more.
