We were with the students as they made a ruckus in the name of art in a handful of Fifth Street businesses that included  Bonnett’s Book Store; Blind Bob’s; Lucky’s Taproom, Goodwill, Lily’s Bistro and Corner Kitchen.

Buttacavoli gave away free tickets to surprised diners and shoppers along the way.
