Purcellville First Friday will kick off its second season with March’s theme – “Men in Kilts” – thanks to an idea from Realtor Janet Mulhern of Atoka Properties.
In late January, local business leaders donned Scottish kilts for a photo shoot with award-winning photographer Sarah Huntington (photo at right). The photo is on display at Above Ground Winery and other local businesses. Readers and locals are invited to guess whose legs belong to which business leader, and submit their guesses to win a $100 gift card to Magnolias at the Mill restaurant. The photo and “Guess Whose Legs” forms are available at buisnesses around town and can be dropped in a box at Above Ground Winery (Thursday – Sunday noon ‘til 5:00 p.m.). A drawing of entries will start at 9:00 p.m. March 1 at the winery (105 Main Street, Purcellville).
“The community is invited to enjoy extended, later hours of local businesses on Friday, March 1. These businesses will be offering music, free appetizers and beverages along with special sales:
- Above Ground Winery – Live Music with Jason Masi www.jasonmasi.com;
- Around the Block Books – Open Mic Night with Poetry and Short Stories ?and Music;
- Other participating business – Atoka Properties, Its Bazaar on 21st Street, Piper Dan’s Keltic Shoppe, RE-LOVE IT, and more.
Merchants encourage the public to wear kilts on First Friday to celebrate the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day. Don’t have a kilt? Visit Piper Dan’s Keltic Shoppe for a selection of kilts and celebration items.
