Cupcakes are great. Beer is great. Shopping is great.

If you agree with most or all of the previous three statements (which, come on, you totally should), then we’ve got something for you to do tomorrow evening. NoRA Cupcakes has teamed up with Eli Cannon’s and Krust Pizza to host First Thursdays, a “block party” style celebration that’s happening the first Thursday of every month. Each month there is a new theme that Eli’s, Krust, and NoRA will center their offerings around. This event is free and open to everyone!


If you need a break from midterm craziness, the theme of this months First Thursday is “This One’s For The Boys.” There’s going to be Dogfish Head Beer on tap at Eli Cannon’s, and Krust will be hosting Founders Brewing Co – Tap Room. At NoRA there will be a pop-up market and live music from The Kevin Howard Band. Check out the Facebook page for the list of featured vendors.

First Thursday will run from 6 – 10 pm today (Thursday March 6th) at NoRA, Krust, and Eli’s (all on the North End of Main Street). It’s a great chance to get out into the Middletown community and sample some local companies!

Happy end of midterms!
