Just being in The Joule (1530 Main St.) feels like being in a swanky, miniature art gallery. Usually, you just wander the Taschen library and buy a coffee at Weekend (the only thing that you can afford), but now you can enjoy a kick-ass cultural experience in this gorgeous setting. At The Joule’s First Thursdays, you can browse the knick-knacks and aesthetically-pleasing, well-curated selection of goods (some at great markdowns) while listening to JT Donaldson spin tunes and enjoying a killer happy hour. Ms. Patty Cake will also be on hand doing nail art, so you can get a tiny little masterpiece that you can see every time you look down on your hands — even if you don’t buy anything else.
