Roughly 7 PM (AKA "almost bedtime")
Antidote regulars I Am Mesmer, who also play their White Linen Night event and other sporadic shows, had a couple members come out for a Sunday night performance and the kids were rocking. Cars parked back, leaving space for a makeshift dance floor. My sons were the only boys in a sea of princess dresses, but that didn't intimidate them. They know they're good dancers. Ha! It didn't take long for adults to get the hint and get their feet moving, too. From the day it opened its doors, Antidote has been a neighborhood favorite, offering a low key atmosphere that welcomes young, old, hipster, yuppie, workers and players alike. If you want a snapshot of who and what make up the Heights, simply swing by this coffee shop for a beverage and look around (oh, and if you don't know, they also have beer and wine).
