It was December of 2008 when Dave and Jannie were on their way to dinner in downtown Colorado Springs and saw hundreds of people walking and running on this cold dark night…they were Jack Quinn’s Runners (click here)…an idea was born.
(Fast forward four years…)
***Meet Me At Maynards celebrated its 200th consecutive weekly walk/run on Monday night!***
For 200 Monday’s in a row since April 13, 2009
(rain, shine, holidays) nearly 14,000
have experienced MMM, and many have
made MMM part of their weekly routine! Total
attendance in this four years is 80,000 people!
This Monday we had an electric crowd, one of our biggest in recent memory. The weather has been beautiful, and the construction throughout our reinvigorated downtown is
almost done! Thank you for “getting out” and thank you for
supporting downtown Tucson!
Help support a downtown treasure! The non-profit Rialto Theatre Foundation is throwing its first ever fundraising gala on February 9. The Carnival-themed event is headlined by Grupo Fantasma, and features a VIP Dinner with 2 free drink tickets & balcony access, a silent auction, and after party with Brownout!
