Chews Jeffersonis the catchy title of a new event of the Promotion Committee in coordination of the Mahanay Bell Tower’s Tower Tunes Liveconcerts. This is the third year of the daily live concerts from 12:15 – 12:30 pm with local musicians sharing their talents by playing the carillon. An idea emerged to draw people to eat their lunch while listening to the concerts near the Tower. It is like Java & Juice, only bring your own lunch and it is on Wednesdays!
The Promotion committee contacted local eateries to offer a take-out special on Wednesdays in June. One restaurant each Wednesday would be the featured spot for people to stop in and get a $5 take-out lunch. Call ahead to have it ready for you. Then head to the Bell Tower Plaza, Thomas Jefferson Gardens, or Sally’s Alley to enjoy the concert during lunch. Everyone is invited to “Chews Jefferson” on Wednesdays.
Lynda Cochran and Angie Reese-Heuser are chairing this event for the month of June working with restaurants in the Main Street District. Debra McGinn is helping with publicity. The Promotion committee plans to work with the Chamber of Commerce to see if other restaurants around Jefferson would be willing to offer a $5 take-out meal on a specific Wednesday during the rest of the summer.
Musicians are invited to play a tune on the Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower on Saturday between 9-11 a.m. Just check in at the lobby of the tower. Music is available and assistance to learn about the instrument will be available.
