Ladies Night Out this Thursday

Ladies, get ready to start your Valentine’s Day celebration a little early with a night just for you.

The Main Street McDonough Program will host Ladies Night Out Thursday, from 6-9 p.m., in the city’s downtown area. The theme of the evening will be “Valentine’s Wish List,” said Main Street Event Planner, Bekah Nix.

She said the occasion is designed as a way for women in attendance to enjoy a fun evening of dining, shopping and creating their own brand of Valentine’s memories.

“Since this one will be about Valentine’s Day, each restaurant and merchant will have a Special that represents Valentine’s Day,” said Nix. “You pick your favorite five items that you want from any of the shops on the Square and leave us that list, along with the email address of your significant other. We will send that list to the significant other, and that takes the guessing out of the gift. So, the ladies are guaranteed to get what they want.”

Main Street McDonough is also partnering with McDonough Hospitality & Tourism by using a green screen to create photos commemorating the event for Valentine’s Day.

This year marks the first “Valentine’s Wish List” event for Main Street McDonough. Nix said Ladies Night Out typically generates a good response, and is hopeful that the wish-list concept will be a hit and draw crowds in anticipation of the big day.

“We’re excited because we’re trying new themes to keep it interesting and fun,” she said.
