Sometimes we hit a perfect storm of activity and we get to see for a moment the Lynn we all know is on its way to becoming a reality. Last night was one of those nights. We had a pre-show dinner crowd flooding into all our downtown restaurants from 5-7. In Central Square a 5K race went from the Clock to Red Rock Park and back. An after-party kept the racers in downtown for a bit longer and then as that let out and the dinner crowd flooded in to the auditorium, the racers re-filled those restaurant seats. As the racers tired out, the Foreigner concert let out, and once again a new wave of business came to our downtown.
This is what it's all about. The more activity, the more economy. The more community, the more pride. We got a real glimpse on Thursday night. Now, how do we get more nights like that?
