Join us for the next BABA BBB

suzettes-outsideEvery month we pick a different spot in the Belmont Area Business District for a BBB (Belmont Business Beverage) connecting up for social networking.  This month, meet up with us at SUZETTE’S CREPERIE in the heart of Belmont businesses between 33rd and 34th.  Always a great spot lunch and dinner and for our next morning BBB on the forth week of the month - 10:30am-12:30pm on Thursday, March 26th.  Hope to see you there!

Look Who’s New to Belmont!

SMOKE HOUSE TAVERN: This is the much anticipated second restaurant from Chef BJ Smith of Smokehouse 21.  His newest place is right next to Stereotypes Audio Resources and Porteco Lighting in the Morrison Square set of shops at the corner of 14th and Morrison.  Welcome to the SE B.J! 
PORTLAND KNIFE HOUSE:  We have a honeymoon to thank for our high end culinary knife store just opened up in the 2600 block of Belmont.  Eytan and Joy came to Portland from Phoenix just after getting married and vowed to move right back as soon as they could.  The store is already crowded with curious knifeaficionados.  Do stop by and say hi.

BELMONT COLLECTIVE:   Ben and John Kirk and Mike Harris are providing medical marijuana options at 2036 SE Belmont St.  They’ve appreciated the warm welcome from surrounding medical offices that have been referring patients their way.

A Whole Lot of Networking Going On . . .

A big thank you to all the great businesses that turned out, donated and networked together at the BABA Annual Dinner . . .

Here are some highlights of the evening:

IMG_2787Our guest speaker, Heather Hoell, Director of Venture Portland, updated us on the Comp Plan from her perspective and her involvement on the mixed use zoning committee.  Then went home with this gift certificate from Belmont Area Business District favorite: Portland Nursery.



IMG_2770New client relationships were made for several great local businesses including Absolutely You Salon owner and stylist posing with their newest clients for 2015.





IMG_2786And new BABA members made great first impressions.   Much thanks to Sustainably Organized for making this Advantis Banker’s day with hours of professional organizing to look forward to in 2015.




So much to look forward to in 2015, including a new local district grant program.  Join us at the next BABA business meeting (2nd Thursday of every month – Belmont Firehouse – 35th and Belmont 9-10:30am) or at the next BBB (Belmont Business Beverage) to find out more.
