— “We are so happy to be a part of this tradition. Tonight has been great,” Karen Eldridge said during a brief rest from assisting shoppers. “Our business has been up all year, and Men’s Night Out is a wonderful time for us because we can showcase what we have — and sometimes what we have left.”

Cazenovia High School students Marie Sugio, left, Hannah Light-Olson and Emily Willard brave the low temperatures to advertise free gift-wrapping for Men’s Night Out attendees. The girls are members of the varsity indoor track team, and were accepting donations for their uniform fund.

Once gathered at the Lincklaen House, Cazenovia men had the chance to enter a raffle for a state-of-the-art flatscreen television and relax after their HCBD shopping sprees.

As the revelry wound down, residents slowly returned to their homes and looked to hide their newfound presents —before the respective recipients had a chance to sneak a peek.

“My family and I love this place, and love these stores,” said Cazenovia resident Kevin Velasco. “Shop locally; it’s important.”
