Ep. 41 - The First Lady of First Night

December 28, 2015
Suzie Graham, president of Downtown Akron Partnership, spoke with us about the the 20th Annual First Night Akron New Year's Eve celebration (in downtown Akron this Thursday night), along with leading this unique organization that helps tie together a number of sectors, like local government, arts, business and nonprofits. Along with helping to bring in more downtown play and living, Downtown Akron Partnership also has a host of ambassadors who can be found keeping the streets clean and helping residents find businesses and landmarks, along with providing roadside assistance. 

*** We also discuss local businesses and organizations, like Sweet Mary's Bakery, Cilantro, Crave, Nuevo, Lock 3 Akron, and Don Drumm Studios and Gallery.
