Neighborhood happy hour

Join your neighbors at Old Major, 900 South Carey Street, for this month’s Ridgely’s Delight Happy Hour. If you’re new to the area and would like to meet other people from Ridgely’s Delight, this is your opportunity.

This is a “vaccination preferred” event. We ask that all attendees maintain a safe social distance and respect boundaries of others while there.

If you are new to the area, please refer to the information on the neighborhood website for residential permit parking (www.ridgelysdelight.org/neighborhood/parking). Since our neighborhood is a pilot program for virtual permit parking (VPP), there have been some glitches regarding erroneous parking tickets. If you have received a ticket and you have correctly registered your vehicle or visitor online, please reach out to parking@ridgelysdelight.org so we can try to trouble shoot.
