First Friday

April 7 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Select retailers are open late (5pm-8pm) with some offering specials or snacks and refreshments to any shoppers that pop in for a visit. Select restaurants and bars will also offer food and drink specials during this time. We are incorporating a scavenger hunt again this month to make First Fridays more exciting and interactive with a grand prize as an incentive at the end. April’s grand prize is two tickets to Lincoln’s Ghost Walk and a gift certificate for two to Balen’s Bar and Grill.

Each participating retailer/restaurant/bar will have scavenger hunt cards so feel free to start at any location. You are required to visit a minimum of 4 locations in order to be included in the prize drawing. You will receive two stamps with a purchase.

Once you have 4 locations stamped, write your name and number on the bottom of your card and hand it in to any of the participating retailers and restaurants: Studio on 6th, Brewhaus, Korean War National Museum, Arlington’s, The Cardologist, Milk and Honey Fresh Market, Urban Sassafras, Old Capitol Goods/What the Shirt, Merchant House, The Roost, Yoga7even, Springfield Vintage, Wild Rose, The Alamo, Balen’s Bar and Grill, Murphy’s Loft, Driftwood Cocktails and Eatery, Jade’s Far East Emporium, Daisy Jane’s, The Globe Tavern, JP Kelly’s Pub, Café Andiamo, Obed and Isaac’s Microbrewery and 411 Bar and Grill A full list of participating stores coming soon.
