Local green general store Park + Vine is celebrating seven years in Over-the-Rhine with a party.
This family-friendly party will feature live music, food, a phototbooth and a DJ — all coinciding with OTR's Final Friday gallery walk. The celebration, officially titled the "Seven Year Itch," starts at 7 p.m.
“Seven years seems like a very long time and at the same time, not long at all,” says shop owner Dan Korman in a recent press release. “When we opened on Vine Street, we were one of the very first merchants. Main Street is reemerging. We’re ready for more. Like most people, I appreciate the creative and independent spirit of Main Street, so it makes so much sense to celebrate on Final Friday.”
Music kicks off with Roots rockers Pike 27 in front of the shop at 7 p.m. and the fun continues inside, throughout the store and into Goetz Alley outside. Inside, there will be food samples from local foodie friends and a vegan anniversary cake from Happy Chicks Bakery. MadTree Brewing and Rhinegeist will both be on hand to pour beer. And artist Derek Scacchetti’s latest installation BUILDINGS will be on display. As an added bonus, Queen City Bike will be offering free bike valet.
Donations to the Lily Mulberry Fund will also be accepted. (Mulberry, founder of 1305 Gallery, recently passed away. The closing reception for Thank You Lily, Part II will be on view at 1305 Gallery on Main Street tonight.) 7 p.m.-midnight Friday, May 30. 1202 Main St., Over-the-Rhine, parkandvine.com.
