Madison Avenue businesses host inaugural Meet Me Along Madison event

The Madison Avenue Business Association has announced the inaugural Meet Me Along Madison event, an opportunity to highlight the many restaurants and businesses along the avenue.
The event, taking place all day on March 22 and 23, will allow the community to explore the midtown neighborhood. Participating businesses will offer a feature for $20.16 that highlights what their business "brings to the table" in Memphis.

Though restaurants and bars like Boscos Squared and Babalu Tacos and Tapas, are a large part of this experience, organizers emphasize that the specials don’t stop there. Retail stores will have featured items and local services will offer their specialty at a featured rate. For example, Utopian Animal Hospital will offer discounted grooming services and Maggie’s Pharm and The Square Olive will offer gift baskets. S Berry Jones Architects and Shannon R. Little, Freelance Marketing and Public Relations Specialist, will offer consulting specials. 
The full list of participants is available on the Association's Facebook page.  

The Madison Avenue Business Association is a non-profit organization hosted by business owners and leaders on Madison Avenue.The organization annually hosts clean up events, mixers, and community events with the goal of keeping the street clean, safe, and lively.
