Throw trendy Bree street bars and restaurants into the mix, and you have an awesome night out.

Check out the Google Map on the First Thursdays site to pick a starting point, then grab a printed map at one of the venues and get walking.

Be sure to visit Friends of Design’s – Academy of Digital Arts – First Thursday event at 186 Bree Street for a chance to doodle to your heart’s content while surrounded by good company and enjoying free wine.
