On this very day in 1492, Columbus became the first European to set foot on Hispaniola. Exactly 441 years later, Prohibition officially ended in the U.S. These two things have nothing to do with this First Friday, per se, but in a world that's seen mass genocide and enslavement, and a booze ban, one sometimes feels the need to find solace in art. OK, I'm stretching here, but it's hardly untrue. And anyway, you know the drill: Between the hours of 5 and 9 tonight, galleries throughout the area will open new shows — many offering holiday sales with small, affordable artwork, and still more raising money for local causes. There's far more going on than this space can fit, so check our listings section for a full list of all the happenings. Plus, I can promise you this, there will be wine. — Edie Adelstein
