MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -- For the first Friday of each month over the past four years, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts has showcased a different musical group paired with a wine sampling and Museum tour during its popular First Fridays event.

Lara Lewis, Director of Marketing and Public Relations said, "We are thankful for Montgomery's faithful support of First Fridays for the past four years at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. We have had a lot of fun combining fine art and fine music, but we are happy to announce that for 2009 we are going to combine fine art and fine dining at the Museum."
On Friday, March 6, 2009 at 6:30 p.m., an evening of art, fine food, and enjoyable wines in an unbeatable atmosphere is the scene of another new Museum experience called Café M: An Artful Bistro.
