A semi-regular event designed to bring our members together in a casual environment for open and unstructured discussion on topics of mutual interest. Meet fellow members, the Executive Director and members of the Board of Directors. Find out first hand what is happening, where things are going and how to get involved. This is an excellent opportunity for members to network with other downtown business owners and staff and to showcase various businesses and restaurants located downtown.

This program brings together a small number of buisness owners and staff at a local business for conversation with drinks, tapas or dinner. Each month we seek a new business to meet at, and vary the topics, participants and design of the evening. We try to keep the event under two hours, which at times could be difficult when too much fun is had. Light snacks and beverages are provided, which varies for each gathering.

If you are interested in attending or hosting one of these events, please contact our office.
