We had a great time at our monthly business mixer on Wednesday, November 5th at AnchorWave Strategic Website Solutions - Tucson's home for Web Design & Internet Marketing. There was plenty of beer, wine and arcade games! Anchor Wave is a company that knows how to do great work and have fun doing it! Tucson Originals member Mama’s Hawaiian Bar-B-Cue provided tasty eats for the crowd. We talked all things local including some great upcoming events like the following:
Local First AZ's don't miss seminar on Building a Bike Friendly Business in partnership with Living Streets Alliance. We will fill you in on the how and why of attracting bikes to your business and will include a special tour of the Bookmans' Sports Exchange Bike Basement. The seminar is free, but seating is limited so you must register here.
Come down November 22nd, for Buy Local Month kick-off event at the Tucson Museum of Art Artisans Market. At 10:00 am, Mayor Rothschild and Kimber Lanning will speak on the importance of buying local for the holidays. We are also hosting a shopping tour to bring folks down from Phoenix. Tell your friends from Phoenix to sign up here and come on down for a visit. We are also asking all our business members and supporters to help us spread the message to Buy Local for the holidays by signing up for our thunderclap campaign and showing off great things you purchase locally with the hashtag #ibuylocalaz.
