Live music, food trucks, art and biking, oh my! Bay View Gallery Night has plenty to offer this June 1, so we broke it down by some areas of interest.

The bi-annual Bay View Gallery Night event is taking place this Friday, June 1, from 5-10 p.m. More than 50 businesses and hundreds of artists will participate in the event, so we know it can look a little overwhelming at first. Not to fret: we broke it down by some popular areas of interest. Here are some of the artists, shows, eateries and entertainers that you shouldn’t miss.

Music Lover

Since collaborating with the Bay View Jazz Fest in 2014, Bay View Gallery Night has become a one-stop shop for all local music lovers. Musical artists will be scattered throughout the neighborhood, so map out who you want to see and when ahead of time.

Some recs:

– Sam Neufield is coming all the way from New York City to The Backyard (155 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.) at 9 p.m. to play some tunes as a jazz trumpeter.

– D14 Brewery and Pub (2273 S. Howell Ave.) is hosting the Funky Chemists, an organ trio specializing in both original compositions and funky covers, at 9 p.m.

Chad McCullough is coming from Chicago to perform his trumpeting skills at the Twisted Path Distillery (2018 S 1st St.) at 9:30 p.m.

– If you’re in the mood for soul and jazz vocals, Lili K and the Lili K Band are performing at Revel Bar (2246 S Kinnickinnic Ave.) at 10 p.m.; maybe she’ll even give a sneak peak of her second album?

If you’re interested in getting food, start at Morgan Park and move north from there. There will be performances at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Morgan Park, and then once you’ve eaten and jazzed out a little, head northwest for performances at the Magnet Factory, Tonic Tavern and Highbury (or take a little detour a few blocks west for Sam’s Tap). At this point, you’re in the main hub of BVGN on Lincoln and Kinnickinnic. Feel free to meander around or head east to Urban or keep going north to see performances at Colectivo, District 14, Revel Bar, Voyageur Book Shop, the Backyard, Twisted Path Distillery and the Lincoln Warehouse.

These are just a few of the performances that we’re excited about (trust us, there are plenty more), but check out the rest of the artists with various times and locations.

Foodie

Food Truck Friday takes place at Morgan Park every Friday, and BVGN is on a Friday so… you do the math. By our calculations that means there will be more than 20 food truck vendors on hand at the event, including Happy Dough Lucky, Meat on the Street and That Salsa Lady, among others. Morgan Park is the southernmost point of the event, so it’s smart to start here and sample around. Food trucks will start serving food at 5 p.m., ending around 8 p.m., so get some grub before you enjoy the rest of the night.

Although Food Truck Friday will be the main food event, plenty of restaurants will be serving refreshments:

– Cycle Loft (155 E Rosedale Ave.) is serving free red wine and New Barons Brewery beer

URSA/Healium Hot Yoga (2534 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.) will have beer from Collective Arts Brewery and “Shay Breeze” slushies from Snack Boys

1840 Brewing Company (342 E. Ward St.) is offering limited-release beers

– Mac’s Pet Depot (2197 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.) has both people- and dog-wine

Bike Enthusiast

The Bay View Gallery Night Rollout is taking place again this year. Bikers can meet up at Rush Mor Records (2635 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.) at 5 p.m. and then everyone will ‘rollout’ together at 6 p.m. From there, the group will make stops collectively throughout BVGN until 9:30. After that, the Newport (939 E Conway St.) is hosting a dance party at 10:30 p.m. Make sure to wear clothes that you can get paint on and dance all night in.
