TGIT Background

Several years ago, TETNA discovered that most of their events were for families with small children. But we know that our neighborhood is a multi-generational community! So our friend and past Board member, Tiger Beyer had the idea of a TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday) celebration, an adult evening out. As he moved forward with the events, the businesses asked if we could hold our event on Thursday, when their business was a little slower and at a time when they could better accommodate us. So the TETNA TGIT was born.

TGIT was a much-beloved event, but it went on a hiatus for a few years. With all the new establishments on North Avenue, we decided it was time to renew the tradition.
