While the weather seems to be having a hard time getting oriented to the idea it’s spring, the Downtown Lexington Corporation isn’t as it has dropped the lineup for this year’s Thursday Night Live parties, April 4 to Oct. 31. As always, TNL is 4:30 to 8 p.m. Thursdays in the Fifth-Third Pavilion at Cheapside Park, between Main and Short streets, just west of Upper Street, adjacent to the old courthouse building. Bands play 5:30 to 7:30. There are plenty of food and beverage vendors at the event, and each week all tips will go to a select not-for-profit group.
