First Friday

First Friday Returns in March!

Join us next Friday, March 6th, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Sumo Hibachi & Sushi for the first “First Friday” of 2020. Sumo is located at 4170 Sunset Blvd. in Steubenville. Stop by for a quick drink, bring your co-workers for some great appetizers, or meet your family and stay for dinner.

The Chamber’s First Friday program began in 2017 as a movement to support our local restaurants and pubs on the first Friday of each month. There is no charge to attend, no reservation required, and no set program or speaker. It’s just a fun, casual way to end the week, once a month, by gathering with fellow Chamber members for an after-work drink, appetizer, or dinner. We’ll have some fun door prizes and giveaways so mark your calendars now. See you next Friday at Sumo.

Join Us For The “Traveling” First Friday Poker Run!

“First Friday,” which began over a year ago, has become a favorite event among chamber members and our member restaurants and pubs. It’s casual and fun – just a get together on the first Friday of each month with food, drink and conversation. There’s no speaker, agenda, program or cost. And it supports one of the chamber’s most important missions, to encourage our residents to eat, drink and shop locally.

In August, we’re taking it on the road and adding a few twists. Join us for the Chamber’s first “traveling” version as we load up in style in two limo buses generously sponsored by Ryan at Advanced Entertainment Limousine and head out to several stops throughout the county. We’ll start at Froehlich’s Classic Corner downtown and, after stops in Toronto, Wintersville and Steubenville (the restaurants will be announced soon), we’ll end up at “First Friday On 4th” in downtown Steubenville. To add even more fun to our trip, you’ll draw a playing card at each of the five stops with the winning hand at the end taking home half of the ticket sales pot – over $300! You can thank Janet McLaughlin (formerly Janet King – congrats on her recent marriage) for this exciting and interesting event idea. Space is very limited and reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $20 per person and must be paid by cash or check to officially book your seat. Phone RSVPs do not confirm your seat – we must have your payment in order to be fair to all who would like to participate. Stop by the Chamber offices to reserve your spot or mail your check to: The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, 630 Market Street, Steubenville, OH 43952.
