The East Village Independent Merchants Association (EVIMA) will be hosting its second annual #EastVillageLoves party at Jimmy’s No. 43 (43 E. 7th St.) on Thursday, Aug. 4. The party is a celebration of local, independent businesses, specifically those located in the East Village.
The #EastVillageLoves party was founded in the wake of last year’s Second Avenue explosion that claimed two lives and shuttered dozens of small businesses in the area for months at a time. East Village Loves & EVIMA seeks to unite East Village residents and merchants and to create a stronger neighborhood where small business can thrive.
The party will include prizes, small bites, a meet and greet with the EVIMA board, and a free first drink for all in attendance. RSVP via eastvillageloves.eventbrite.com. A special toast will be made at 7 PM sharp.
