Update, Sunday, 6 p.m.:

Here’s what the “Artists at Grove Street Plaza” event was like:

Original article, Saturday, 1 p.m.:

Until 6 p.m., you can do something different for a Saturday afternoon in Darien: Visit the “Artists at Grove Street Plaza” where local artists with paintings and photos of Darien scenes are available along with crepes, fondue and soup at the outdoor event.

On one side of the plaza, The Melting Pot has free fondue samples (milk chocolate and dark chocolate), on the other, NEAT coffeehouse has an outdoor table with free samples of a pumpkin soup that needs to be tasted to be believed.

In between, there’s music and enough artwork to stock several exhibits (and many of these artists are between exhibits — one has one going on now at Darien Library).

Entry is free. Money raised by the sale of coffee mugs or other items helps the Darien Arts Center.

Here’s a sampling of what it looks like and what some of the artists say. To sample the food and music — well, you really should go there yourself.

If you’re reading this after 6 p.m. Saturday, there’s always next year.
