“I think that it is an amazing opportunity for the businesses to connect with the community and connect with each other,” said Dorsey.
Christy Deen, owner of Drip-Thru coffee on Virginia Avenue, echoed those sentiments.
“It’s just really a good time for us to unwind with wine and get to know your neighbor, the new businesses, and city workers,” Deen said. “It’s about lifting up and continuing to build the community.”
College Park’s main street manager, Renée Coakley, said the goal of the event was to publicize the businesses on Main Street and Virginia Avenue in downtown. Some businesses will have temporary stalls around the train depot on Main Street to ensure easy walkability and the safety of participants, she said.
