Pick up a “passport” for shopping, music, hors d’oeuvres and wine tasting – plus a chance to win big prizes – in downtown Harlem.
The Georgia Bulldogs football team might have the night off, but downtown Harlem will be open for business for its third annual Harlem Ladies’ Night Out on Saturday, October 20.
The event, presented by The Harlem Merchants Association and Landrum Florist and Antiques, is open to all ladies who like shopping, music, good food and good friends at a fun-filled evening. Ladies can pick up their passports and maps in front of the Harlem library and then visit stores where they can enjoy browsing through the merchandise, wine and hors d’oeuvres.
“It’s like a big scavenger hunt,” says Marla Logan, a Harlem business owner. “The ladies can get their passports stamped and enter them in a drawing for door prizes at the end of the night at Red Oak Manor.”
Door prizes include items such as a flat screen television and Yeti coolers. A free concert by the band Harlem Sons will begin about 7 p.m. at Red Oak Manor. Kicks 99 also will broadcast live for the event’s Guitar Pull ticket stop.
“The event is free. However, if you wish to participate in tasting wine in our storefronts, there will be a one-time $5 charge for a wristband,” Logan says. “We just want people to visit and explore downtown Harlem.”
