Raining Spring Brings Good News and Zootunes

Spring is here! …and so is the rain. You can gear up for the spring weather by shopping at the local retail shops in the area because many of them are having great sales going on right now.  Show Pony is having an in-store sale and discounting items anywhere from 10-20% off.  Pipe & Row just got in some very adorable and pacific northwest fashion dresses that will be hard to resist.I would also like to make a huge shout out to Portage Bay Goods for celebrating their 20 years in Fremont!  We are looking forward to many more years with them and if you need a last minute gift they are the place to go! #20yearsofprocastination
Last week we had Klya Blair, Small Business Liaison for the Mayor’s Office at our monthly meeting and she was a great representative for the Mayor. There were lively discussions about homelessness, traffic safety, affordable housing, head tax and much more.  We create these events so our community can be heard!  She answered many questions and took back pages of notes to bring up to the mayor.  You can check out some pictures from the event on our Facebook Page. We also want to thank Ripe Catering for the delicious warm breakfast, Hales Ales for providing the large space and Homestreet Bank for sponsoring the event.  We cannot make these events as powerful without our sponsors. Thank you!
Today tickets go on sale for the summer Woodland Park Zoo Zootunes!  Just thinking about it makes me super excited to lay out in the grass and listen to great music. They will have artist like Ziggy Marley (which I will defiantly be at), Indigo Girls, The Psychedelic Furs, Violent Femmes, Pink Martini and more.Check out the lineup here.
I know I got you thinking about summer, however, before that hits we still have some great spring events.My favorite is the Fremont Scorch and Beer Fest that will be taking place March 30 and 31. They will have 50+ craft beers and many different scotch and whiskey flights to taste. It is an inside event at the Fremont Studios so if the rain bothers you, first you are in the wrong state and second you have no need to fret.Get your tickets today!They are also still looking for a few more volunteers! There are great benefits to volunteering for an event like this and you can check them out here.
Stay dry!
Have a wonderful weekend!
