April Lunch Mixer Recap: Thai Lotus

lotus-flowerThis month's lunch mixer led us to the delicious thai restaurant, Thai Lotus. Nestled on the corner of 19th Ave. and Glendale Ave. this incredible spot is serving up traditional favorites, like Pad Thai, along with interesting new creations like their Pumpkin Curry. Built into their extensive menu are combinations to satisfy every vegetarian or carnivore looking for great fresh food. photo 4Just down the street on 19th Ave. is Bookmans Entertainment Exchange, a great place to buy, sell and trade used books, video games, movies, and musical instruments. Next time you're out, be sure to bring along those old video games or books and collect cash instead of dust!

Another great 19th Ave. business that joined us for lunch was Elaman Rodriguez Customer Service Consulting providing "a 5-step coaching process of individuals and organizations, but how to not only win customers, but to keep them for life."

photo 1Because of the light rail extension, many great businesses all along 19th Ave. have begun feeling the decline in customer sales, which is a great reason to get out there to support local. Although they have broken ground, business entries are still easily accessible whether you are walking, biking or driving. Once the light rail extension is complete, our community will be able to reach farther into Phoenix and provide more foot traffic to more local business. All of this additional support will only improve our local economy.

Among those in attendance were two representatives from Valley Metro to explain the METRO Max Rewards, which is a "discount program that lets you enjoy exclusive savings from businesses along future light rail extensions."
