The statewide shelter in place order is forcing Madison businesses to get creative. With the 3rd Annual Spring Wine Walk in Downtown Madison, scheduled for April 9, unable to proceed as originally planned, the Madison Central Business Improvement District will be hosting a virtual alternative. 

The “Downtown Madison LIVE – Spring Watch Party” brings together more than a dozen downtown businesses for a free event hosted via Facebook from 5-8 p.m. Thursday. 

From the comfort of their own homes, customers will have the chance to interact with some of their favorite local stores, a release said. Local businesses will be leading virtual tours and offering contests and giveaways throughout your night.

In addition being able to have an online shopping spree, you can purchase two different pre-packaged bundles with coupons and promotional materials from a range of downtown businesses. You can find party packs here.

Participants include:
Brix Coworking & Events
Red Square Floral
Ian’s Pizza
Square Wine Co.
Little Luxuries
The Soap Opera
Madison Optometric Center
The University Book Store
Madison Senior Center
Nicks Restaurant
