Mayor Marty Walsh will be attending the Jamaica Plain News launch party on Thursday during his visit to First Thursday throughout Centre/South — please stop by and meet him.
We’re hosting the launch party with JP Centre/South Main Streets as the business development organization relaunches the First Thursday Art Walk. All along the Centre/South corridor there’ll be music, food and drink tastings and lots of art in the various businesses and offices.
The party is from 6-8 p.m. Thursday at 668 Centre St. That’s the old Verizon store, between City Feed and the Smoke Shop. Neighborhood old-timers may remember the spot as Kennedy Butter & Eggs.
We’ll also have a live jazz trio, artist installations, beer, non-alcoholic drinks and food. The folks behind the JP Music Festival will also have a table at the event.
Please stop by! Here’s a map of all the businesses participating in First Thursdays Art Walk.
[Editor’s note: The headline and text have been updated to make it clear that Walsh is coming for all of First Thursday.]
