  • Dinner brings night life to Main

    The sights, sounds – and smells – were undeniably festive at the first annual 2009 Progressive Dinner.

    It was in the smiles of diners as they greeted old friends along Main Street in Taylorsville. It was in the strums of acoustic guitars as their notes danced into the night air.
