First Thursday

Is first Thursday on South Congress still a big deal? It was 4-5 years ago, but I haven't been since then.

Re: First Thursday

  • I'm pretty sure it is. DH and I are headed down there tonight. I've never been so I'm excited to finally go!

    I'm thinking about it, but the heat might keep me away! Hopefully I can talk DH into it.

    Did you all go? The heat wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

  • No, we didn't make it. I got a killer headache (migraine maybe?) around 5 and had to lay down. Maybe we'll make it next month.

    How was it? I haven't been in quite a while and was wondering if there's more stuff going on.

     I liked it. I'd never been so I don't know how it compares to before but I thought there was plenty going on. We just walked up and down stopping at a few of the tents and getting food, and of course Amy's ice cream. Next time we go I'd love to stop at one of the places that has live music and hang out for a bit.

    When I used to go (a few years ago) they did not close the street and parking was terrible. We would usually just get there pretty early and eat dinner at one of the restaurants before the crowds show up.

    They don't close the street down. We got there pretty early - around 5:45ish but there were tons of parking spots available. I think since they added the back-in parking on SoCo it helps a lot.
