We hit the happening spots for First Friday’s art walk and the club craziness afterward, including The Loading Zone for its grand opening party, NextDoor, Bar 35, The Venue, Cafe Sarang, The ARTS at Marks Garage for an art show by the residents of the Chinatown Artists Lofts, Mercury Bar and, of course, the colorful streets of Chinatown, where we spotted everyone from “So You Think You Can Dance” star and Lady Gaga dancer Mark Kanemura to visitors in town for the tattoo expo.
