Longer days mean more outdoor activities, and when those activities take place in unexpected locations, we're all in.

Last spring, the Downtown Little Rock Partnership (DLRP) launched its Alley Party series. After a successful return in the fall, the series is back for its second round of springtime fun.

The first event is set for Thursday, May 17 in the space near the corner of Main Street and Daisy Bates Drive, continuing the DLRP's goal to explore the "tucked away portions of downtown."

Alley Parties are open to the public, and the season kickoff event will include craft beer from Stone’s Throw Brewing, pizza from Raduno Brick Oven & Barroom and live music from Buh Jones. Be there 5-8 p.m.
