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.

Kennedy Butter & Eggs operated at 668 Centre St. for 32 years. It closed in 2000.

Please stop by! Here’s a map of all the businesses participating in First Thursdays Art Walk.
