Kicking off the Second Anniversary of FRYE Atlanta meant the fresh new smell of leather permeating the air, great tunes from a local band, and several handcrafted cocktails made with Bulleit Whisky.
If you know anything about the FRYE company, you know that all of their leather goods are handcrafted to perfection. From the mens and women’s boots, to the soft leather shoes, and their custom-made bags…..
The FRYE Co. was created and founded in 1863 by John A. Frye. It happens to be the oldest continuously operated company in the United States. John A. Frye opened the doors to the very first Frye shop in Marlboro, Massachusetts. During that time, Frye was one of the largest and most successful footwear companies in the entire country.
The Frye Company opened its first retail store in New York City’s SoHo district in 2011. In 2013, Frye added three additional stores in Boston, Georgetown, and Chicago. Frye continues to expand in 2015 with the opening of four more stores at Ponce City Market in Atlanta; Roosevelt Field in Long Island, New York; North-Park Center in Dallas; and Tysons Corner in Fairfax County, Virginia.
So as you can see the company alone has a lot to celebrate including the two-year success of yet another store that has been building a large clientele by simply continuing the culture of a creating a great shoe.
While the party was jumping so was the conversation as well as the cocktails. Two very talented bar tenders would mix up your choice of a FRYE Mule or a Bulliet BLT. I would choose the FRYE Mule that was stirred to perfection with fresh lemon juice, ginger soda, and a sprig of mint……. Ummmm delicious…..
In addition to the cocktails, there were several passing trays floating around with small bites.
The local band would announce that they would begin soon and before you knew it the melodic sounds of the surprise musical guest would begin. Little Tybee was an amazing band that I will definitely have to find at another venue.
The event is now coming close to an end. As I sip and mingle, I then take in all the local people of Atlanta who some are wearing what appears to be FRYE shoes and or boots and some who seem very interested in purchasing as they look, feel, and smell the leather in all its GLORY……
Many thanks once again to the ATLFBS for the invite to this amazing event, and thanks to Caren West PR and I can’t leave out the FRYE Co. itself……..
