In collaboration with Downtown Framingham, Inc. (DFI), Depot 417 (formerly the Deluxe Depot Diner) brings you Crosstie night this Wednesday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the biweekly Xchange Depot, featuring a lively scene to build social capital while supporting our area's creative economy.
Enjoy burgers and Depot 417's famous appetizers while getting to know your neighbors better through speed friending. Don't hesitate to try your hand at downtown trivia, either.
If you're feeling creative, head to the Succulent Creation Station or the Make-A-Minion table. While you're looking around, vote for your favorite piece of art work from Felicia Tuttle of Howard Street Studios.
Framingham's commuter rail station, next to Depot 417, is the foundation for Framingham's transit-oriented development. Because transit-oriented development prioritizes pedestrian and cyclist mobility, DFI will give you the opportunity to show where you prefer to bike while also supporting MA Bill S. 3262, An Act to Reduce Traffic Fatalities.
Aside from building social capital, heightening our creative economy, and demonstrating cycling advocacy, you can also relax and play traditional board games, to include Yahtzee, Scrabble, Risk, and Clue. Don't miss out on free raffles for gift cards to Depot 417.
Downtown Framingham, Inc. is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that builds business, community, and culture through four tenets of the Main Street America model, which include public design, promotion, organizational partnerships, and economic vitality.
