For many Columbia residents, Jefferson City might be best known as our fair city’s sleepy southern neighbor, home to the Missouri Capitol and the closest Chick-fil-A, but not necessarily exciting nightlife.
However, those who have written off Jeff City as an entertainment destination might want to rethink that assessment. After all, it’s not like you can imbibe on the street in Columbia. But you are welcome to do so during Thursday Night Live, one of many events the capital is hosting this summer in an attempt to draw visitors into the downtown area. + PAB
