Other sponsors include GoNoFee.com and Ansell Grimm & Aaron Counselors at Law. The event will be produced by Swargo Events.
To assist patrons in navigating up and down Frederick Douglass Boulevard, FDBA is offering free Pedi cab service to wristband holders, and a map that shows where all 17 participating restaurants and bars are located, as well as each business’s $5.00 menu offerings. Food & Drink Boulevard will also feature live moving entertainment throughout the night including a local Harlem Magician, juggling acts and a Harlem Jazz saxophone player. Throughout the event a “moving” photo booth will capture the evening, posting to #fooddrinkblvd the whole way.
