Spend the Night at Daylight

Of all the spots I love in Knoxville, I think the Daylight Building is near the top of the list. When I worked downtown, I got to pass by it every day. I'd stop in at Just Ripe for a vegan breakfast burrito. I'd wave to the folks at John Black Photography. On my lunch break (back to Just Ripe), I might pop into Reruns Boutique for a quick fashion fix or some gab time with my dear friend Bri. On the way home, I'd often drop into Union Avenue Books for some browsing.

The Daylight Building houses a wonderful collection of locally-owned Knoxville shops and I truly miss being in the area now that I work from home.

However, tomorrow I get to visit all my friends for a new event in a series called Daylight Nights. The Daylight Merchants are shutting down the street (Union Ave.) to celebrate the block and you're invited too!

I hope you'll join me and lots of friends on Union Avenue from 5-8 p.m. for shopping, food and fun. Food trucks such as Hoof Knoxville, Tootsie Truck, Good Golly Tamale, and Bull's BBQ will be in attendance. Learn more here, and become a fan of the Daylight Building on Facebook! The Daylight Building has been a Knoxville landmark for many years and I hope this event is just the first in what will hopefully be a longstanding tradition of Daylight Nights to come!
