Hello, Bellingham small business networkers!
Our first trail walk networking event, followed by happy hour at Blue Abode Bar in Barkley Village, was so much fun and such a great networking opportunity for those who attended that we’re planning another one. This activity provides you an opportunity to walk and talk with local business pros on a beautiful local trail while we also support a local small business. Sounds good, right?
BONUS: Blue Abode Bar offers happy hour pricing all night on Thursdays to those who check in at their location before hitting the trail.
The walk — from Barkley Village to the Alabama Hill bridge overlook and back — is roughly 2.5 miles, and the route is relatively flat. Wear casual, comfy clothes and shoes; workout wear is welcome and encouraged. We’ll hang out at Blue Abode after the walk for no-host sips and snacks. Hope to see you there!
Date: Thursday, June 28, 2018
Time: Arrive between 5:45 and 6 p.m. to check in
Place: The Blue Abode Bar, Barkley Village 2925 Newmarket Street, Suite 104, Bellingham, WA
Bring: Walking shoes and business cards
RSVP: Let us know you’re coming by sending a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org. And, remember that we like meeting new faces, too. You can always bring a friend; the more the merrier.
What if it rains? We’re NW Washington dwellers; we don’t let a little drizzle stop us from doing fun stuff! Bring a rain jacket, bring an umbrella — we’re walking! If, however, the weather conditions appear to be dangerous — wind, lightning, torrential downpour — we’ll simply gather at the bar and enjoy happy hour.
