Men's Night

- December 10th, 2012


Men's Night

Last week's Women's Night in downtown Traverse City was so packed with hundreds of shoppers that it will be interesting to see if Men's Night this Thursday can match the turnout.
  It used to be that Men's Night was "the" big event in downtown TC with guys turning out in droves to shop while enjoying adult beverages, treats and special deals on gifts. Shop owners in turn, dress  for the occasion and offer perks such as free gift wrapping.
  Get in the swing this Thursday from 5-10 p.m. downtown. Although the event is geared for men, it's not unusual to find many women shoppers downtown too, enjoying the party atmosphere.
