Good weather is predicted for this Saturday as The New Albany Main Street Association invites everyone to “Mingle and Move” downtown.
The idea is simply to enjoy our downtown area, sampling some of our restaurant wares, seeing some art and listening to some music as well.
The event is partly in celebration of New Albany Main Street’s 20th year. Any funds raised will go toward future Main Street programs.
“Mingle and Move,” will be from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, May 13 according to Main Street Manager Billye Jean Stroud.
Three of the Main Street local restaurant members participating are Tallahatchie Gourmet, Bankhead Bicycle Club, and El Agave. Main Street member Sugaree’s Bakery will cap off the evening with dessert, an after-dinner drink, and live music from Twenty2Seven in The Basement, Stroud said.
Cash bars will be set up at Tallahatchie Gourmet, Bankhead Bicycle Club, and The Basement. Soft drinks and water will be available at no charge.
“Some have called it an appetizer crawl and some have called it a celebration of food, drink, and local art. Whatever you call it, New Albany Main Street’s Mingle and Move will be a night to remember,” she said.
Stroud said Tracy Vainisi, Main Street promotion chair, deserves credit for organizing the event.
In addition to the food, those attending can view artwork from local artists Mckinley Ranager, Jenny Hall and Tom Coltharp at each venue. Justine Treadaway and Leeann Thompson will be doing live painting. Twenty2Seven will provide the music at the Basement.
