An adaptive reuse project by Venue Projects, LLC and John Douglas Architects, The Newton is a mixed-use concept housed inside Phoenix's former (but iconic) Beef Eaters building. Named after Beef Eaters' Founder Jay Newton, today The Newton is a place where people can read, dine, gather, and shop.

The Newton is home to the Phoenix location of Changing Hands Bookstore, Southern Rail Restaurant, Southwest Gardener, and Christofolo Schermer Consulting.  The Newton is also an event venue, with three private event spaces available for private events and parties.



The Local First Arizona networking mixers are an excellent way to meet local business community and connect with LFA staff. Meetings are typically held on the third Wednesday of the month from 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM at different local business throughout the Metro Phoenix. We dedicate the first hour to networking, and from time to time include special networking activities, to keep things fresh.

At 7:00 PM we begin announcements, this is when we share upcoming events, organization updates and share news about the local movement. At the end of announcements, we hold a prize drawing,  donated by members to showcase their business (local items only and minimum value of $25, please)

Are you new? Need a member benefits refresher? Join us from 5:30PM - 6:00PM for a quick overview of your Local First Arizona membership. Open to new and potential members.

Mixers are open to local business owners, local nonprofits, local charities, other local institutions and their employees. As a courtesy to our host, you must RSVP. For more information email Community Outreach Manager, Kendall Jones at: [email protected]
