First Friday today on Georgia Avenue: lots of deals at local businesses (happy hour!)

September's First Friday is upon us, where local businesses on Georgia Avenue open their doors and offer deals and specials. It's a neat way to explore the street and see what businesses there are, as well as meet your neighbors. I've been a few times before and it's a lot of fun.

One of my favorites is the free glass of wine and buy one, get one books at Walls of Books. There are also some new participants, like Ten Tigers Parlour, the awesome Reliable Tavern, and more.

This month's also has events and snacks for kids at the former Murry's parking lot at Georgia and Morton.

Here's the Facebook invite, and the full list of participating businesses is below:

Celebrate another great First Friday with the small, neighborhood businesses on Georgia Avenue NW in Park View & Petworth. Drink, food and retail specials, live music, art and more. "The last days of summer" have to be celebrated appropriately. Mark those calandars and stay tuned for specials and special events. And, as always we are partnering with our friends from Petworth of the Petworth Arts Collaborative

We will have free lemonade, bubbles, chalk and outdoor games for kids at the Old Murry's Parking Lot at Morton & Georgia Avenue (across the street from Midlands).
