If you've been eyeing the sprawling, sexy downtown landscape with apartment units that seem to be multiplying by the day, here's a neat deal:
Explore Downtown Living is making it so you can check out about two dozen properties, open-house style in one fell swoop (well, two fell swoops — the event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, September 19 and 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) in five different downtown neighborhoods. What's more, they want you to make a day of it by offering special food and drink deals like twofers, discounts, and comps at the following downtown food and drink establishments:
Black Sheep Pizza , Eggy’s Diner, Isles Bakery, Kieran’s, The Local, Mason’s, Pizza Luce, Red Cow, Rock Bottom Brewery, Sisyphus Brewing, the Third Bird, and Corner Coffee.
To partake, you must sign up for a free "Field Guide" here.
There are enough two-for-one pints and complimentary cocktails to get pretty boozy on the tour, so this could be a fun way to spend the afternoon, and there are food offers, too. For the full roster of events and other participation details, go here.
Happy drinking/apartment shopping. Word of advice: Don't sign the lease on the penthouse until you've had a moment of sober reflection.
