Happy Hump Day? Already dreaming about the weekend? We are. It’s a busy month, and New2Lou has curated a great list for this week…
Stacey Servo and Amador Delatorre III created New2Lou for people new to Our Fair City, as well for locals looking to expand their social and entertainment horizons. Here are their recommendations for this weekend.
It’s time again to eat, drink and be social! New2Lou 2nd Wed Social is tonight at Molly Malone’s St Matthews, a super fun, social, Irish bar in the heart of St Matthews. We’ll have the entire upstairs bar just for us and drink specials! Sweet, right? A big thanks to our awesome sponsors at this month’s 2nd Wed Social, John Milliner Group, Pitt & Frank Real Estate Attorney’s, and Embrace Homeloans. They are THE experts in the St. Matthew’s neighborhood, so stop by, stay hi and they’ll give you the inside scoop on the St. Matthew’s neighborhood and its real estate market.
