“The lower Georgia Avenue businesses are launching First Friday on May 5th from 6-8pm. This will be a monthly recurring activity with a growing number of businesses offering specials, highlighting DC artists and musicians.
We are partnering with the Petworth Arts Collaborative on this with a vision for a vibrant First Friday from Upshur to Euclid in the hopefully not too distant future.
