In honor of Mathias Eichler's recognition of being the best person in town (Awww-SUM), I give you Mathias' best idears as copied by other people and as told by Discover Thurston.
And, when I say "copied" I mean borrowed without credit seemingly being given. Credit may have been given at some point, but not in these videos or anyplace else I could find.
1. First, is obviously, First Friday: "First Friday began in December of 2007 at the hands of business owners Mathias and Trixy Eichler."
And, as told by Discover Thurston: "The first one we started was in September (2011)."
I don't know what chocolate has to do with November.
2. Also, Table for Olympia: on Olyblog in 2009.
Then, as told by Discover Thurston: "Tonight we're having a Table of Ooooaaah... South Sound."
TJ, you almost blew it, you almost said Olympia.
To be honest, I don't have any problem with people taking ideas and running with them. I do it all the time. But, it is at least polite to give credit where it is very much due.
