Virtual First Friday: April 3 “Stay At Home” Edition
December 15, 2021 @ 6:03 pm
Straight from YOUR HOME you can STILL experience the best that downtown Dayton small businesses and arts and culture has to offer.
We’ve been under “Stay At Home” orders for days now and have been safely practicing keeping our distance from friends and neighbors to protect our communities. But we still think we can provide a virtual First Friday to show off the small businesses, experiences, and arts in downtown Dayton and provide some entertainment for you, your friends, and family.
Schedule a “virtual date” with friends or family to interact with the Virtual First Friday together, while apart.
– Order a takeout or delivery meal from one of the dozens of downtown restaurants committed to serving our community and keeping employees paid during this time.
– -Shop from a local retailer who might not be able to have you in their store, but has a full lineup of goods and gift cards for sale online.
– Explore a local museum, art gallery or theater group through a virtual tour of their interactive online posts, current displays or past works.
