San Jose’s popular “South First Friday’s” tradition was put on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent quarantine, however, as the county moves into more flexible tiers of lock down there are still ways to get out and support local businesses on this first Friday of the month!

Check out one of SoFA’s delicious restaurant options, including the new coffee shop Nirvana Soul! This highly rated coffee shop just recently opened, but it is already drawing long (socially distanced) lines as it offers single-origin beans in espresso drinks and an original menu of sweet and savory waffles.

You can also enjoy a rooftop movie and dinner at the converted outdoor version of 3Below Cinemas. An al fresco happy hour or to-go cocktail is an option at many SoFA establishments as well.

So even if this first Friday of the month in the SoFA is looking a little different then it would on a typical South First Friday, you can still get out and enjoy a Friday evening while supporting the downtown community!
