Can you believe it is already September?! The first week is going by so quickly. What better way to kick off the month than supporting your local downtown businesses while having a night out? First Thursday is upon us! Grab your mask and some friends and check out what they've got going on.

Get cultured with some art at the Capitol Contemporary Gallery. From 3pm-7pm enjoy an exhibit of new work by artists Toby Davis and Josh Udesen, and featuring sculptures by D’Arcy Bellamy. While supplies last visitors will snag a free print by Toby Davis, so get there early to cop yours!

Drinking and dining more your thing? The Stil is hooking you up with $5 beer/wine and ice cream pairings. Edge Pub On 10th is offering all day happy hour including their merchandise, which is 50% off today.

In fact, a few shops are offering discounts on their merchandise today. Score 20% off your entire purchase at Hayes Company Boutique. They close at 6pm, so stop in sooner than later and take a look at their new Fall Line for Women and Babies.

Perhaps the best deal you'll find this and every First Thursday, is karaoke at Voicebox Karaoke. Buy one hour, get one hour free! Take the money you saved and order up some drinks to make for a wild night. Each room has a spacious dance floor to really get into your performances and their music selection is awesome. Honestly, I'm low key obsessed with this place. And it being BOGO free tonight means I'll likely end up there myself.

Where are you headed tonight? Thursday is the new Friday! At least in the first week of the month!
