The Go Mt. Airy Explorer has taken off. The explorer, which is a monthly gathering of deals and coupons for Mt. Airy businesses, was put out for the first time Wednesday. It also includes a calendar of events coming up throughout the neighborhood (all are through April unless otherwise noted). Some of the deals include: You can access all the deals here. The items will, in future months, be listed on a Go Mt. Airy website (at GoMtAiry.com) that isn't live yet. The project is a new Business Association of Mt. Airy initiative.

The site is intended to promote Mt. Airy businesses.
A new Facebook page intended to promote Mt. Airy as a whole launched this week. The site, called Go Mt. Airy, is part of a new Mt. Airy USA effort to promote businesses in the area. It is the precursor to a website that, according to Mt. Airy USA Director of Commercial Corridor Revitalization Elizabeth Moselle, should launch soon. The website, which will be at GoMtAiry.com, will be designed to bring people from around the region into Mt. Airy to shop in local stores and eat at local restaurants. The Facebook page is now sharing information about various events going on in Mt. Airy, like upcoming Quintessence Theatre events and Avenida specials.

Artists will showcase their work and businesses will offer deals.
First Friday is over in Mt. Airy. It has, instead, been replaced by "Final-ly Friday," a neighborhood effort that will encourage people to support area businesses, look at art and generally be out and about in Mt. Airy on the last Friday of each month. The newly formed Business Association of Mt. Airy's Promotions Committee unanimously voted to turn First Friday into Final Friday. Mt. Airy USA Director of Commercial Corridor Revitalization Elizabeth Moselle said the organization, which is being administered by Mt. Airy USA, wanted to distinguish its Friday efforts from those in a place like Old City, for example (which has always celebrated First Friday). Local artists will participate in the event, and Moselle said artists from outside …

The page will launch in February or March.
The planned Business Association of Mt. Airy has just released a mockup of the homepage of their new website that is intended to promote tourism and business activity in the neighborhood. You can take a look at what the planned website will look like at right. It's intended to launch in February or March. The site, called Go Mt. Airy, will be designed to bring people from around the region into Mt. Airy to shop in local stores and eat at local restaurants. It will be run by Mt. Airy USA. While the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District is focused on revitalizing the Germantown Avenue retail corridor, Mt. Airy USA hopes the Go Mt. Airy initiative is an opportunity to strengthen businesses on the side streets as well.
