The F.A.T. Friday Trolleys will run from 11:00am-10:30pm on Black Friday November 26th, in keeping with the day after Thanksgiving shopping tradition. In honor of trolley sponsor Maker’s Mark, many bars and restaurants will be serving specialty cocktails featuring the new Maker’s Mark 46, the brand’s first new creation to hit the market in 52 years.
Maker’s Mark 46 is a close cousin to the original, with a different aging method... in the final weeks to give the whiskey a distinctive taste.
FREE parking and trolley transportation will be provided by TARC. Maker’s Mark makes their bourbon carefully, and they encourage everyone to enjoy it carefully.
