SOUTH STREET—It's First Friday, which means free s'mores at South Street's Fireside Camp Supply. A pop-up of camping-themed finds from Mouse Trap Vintage is on the docket for this month's event, which will be held from 6pm to 8pm, Friday, November 1, in the store's back patio. (Did we mention hot cocoa is also on the menu?) Get your fill of sweets, then peruse the store's inventory of outdoor gear and USA-made products from the likes of Pendleton, Polerstuff, Bison Made, and Minnetonka. [Racked Inbox]
