Being that I'm still somewhat new to the area, after I moved here in October of 2017, I've been doing my best to try and continue to visit shops and restaurants around the area that I haven't been to yet. The event tonight at The Foundry celebrates the 10 year anniversary of Buy Local Kalamazoo. They've got food from local restaurants and eateries, free entertainment, prizes and a cash bar. You can also enter to win a prize package "Staycation," that's valued at over $1,000. The Staycation prize includes a Romance Package at the Henderson castle.

The event is being hosted by The Foundry, you get to enjoy the beautiful event space they have, while celebrating with others who shop, dine, drink and enjoy local. You can get tickets at Ticketweb.com, but if you RSVP here on their event page, you can get in for free. The event runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
