Sunday afternoon featured the first annual “Shop & Nibble” neighborhood event where shoppers were invited to stroll through the North End to 16 retail shops that partnered with nearby restaurants to offer free tasty bites. Sponsored by the same shop owners that put on the famous Buon Natale Holiday Stroll, the Spring tasting and shopping event also received support from the North End Chamber of Commerce. Based on the crowds seen in the shops in the afternoon, “Shop & Nibble” looked like it had a successful first year with folks enjoying the bites while shopping and wandering the North End streets.

Participating shops:
A Matter of Face, Acquire, Bottles, Cocoanuts, Ensemble, Injeanius, LIT Boutique, Luigi and Lola, Lulu’s Sweet Shoppe, Officina 189, Savas Studios, Sedurre, Shake the Tree, Sol Optics, Twilight & The Wine Bottega
