You know our Downtown Manhattan merchants join in the Third Thursday fun! Every week check online to see the variety of specials on food and drinks, sales, giveaways, and an opportunity to learn about new products!

Now if you know our downtown businesses you know they are also joining in the fun! On the 21st, you can stop by G. Thomas Jewelers and be entered into a drawing, grab a drink and produce at Manhattan Brewing Company, or shop various sales and drink specials. For those who want to enjoy Christmas in July stop by AJ's patio and think of cooler months with the Festival of Lights crew! Santa is even stopping by for those early Christmas wishes!!

One of the things I am really excited to attend is at Furnish and it is their Sit & Sip event. When I was in the store a few weeks ago I noticed a spilled glass on their WHITE display couch. At first, I thought "OH NO," then I realized that it was a fake wine glass and was there to advertise their new sustainable fabrics and spill-proof fabrics! As a family with pets who enjoy dinner and a movie on their couch, this could be a game-changer! Interested in seeing more specials, giveaways, and sales at the various downtown merchants, click here and scroll down to see what everyone has up their sleeves this week!
