Lotus Market Place
It is the Metro Monday Edition where we focus a bit more on things going on closer to the Des Moines Metro. Leading off are our friends from Lotus Moments and the Lotus Market Place. It's a Free Vendor Fair! Yes, I said...FREE that kicks off on June 1st at the Lotus Moments Facility 2134 East Grand. Think of an indoor bazaar with food (cakes and candy) entertainment for the kids, and booth after booth of great...stuff. It's organic...and very cool. And, how are they marketing the Market? "We're all over Social Media"...Tammy Sposeto and Renatta Bolen and something brand new! We love new stuff and here is the link to their Facebook Page!
The East Side is buzzing with the news that the Tursi Family is going to buy and build out a new facility out west. Our friends at the Business Record and the Des Moines Register both reported last week on the plans to open a downtown brewery near the Western Gateway Park. The building, a 23,000 sq. foot site built in 1929, is located at 1514 Walnut Street. Tursi says it's "too cool to tear down" and was once the site of a major cosmetics and soap company. Here is the full story from our friends at the Business Record.
Congratulations to Lyle Steinman & Country Vet
Let us take a minute to offer our congratulations to THREE timeSuper Retriever Series Champion, Lyle Steinman of Castile Creek Kennels based in Stewartsville, MO. Lyle and his dog "Jack" made history as Jack is the first dog in the history of the SRS to win back-to-back titles. Here is a link to the results. For loads more about the SRS and Lyle Steinman... Well, here are the links. Congratulations my friend! Lyle uses Dog Fuel from Country Vet Pet Foods...no wonder we like this news!
It's A Week Old Already!
A week is NOT a long time...however in the world of Social Media it is. The fact that the 140 Character Conference is STILL being talked about on Twitter and in Business Blogs is astonishing. The story is we'll be back next April. Congratulations to Nathan T. Wright and Deb Brown...and everybody who participated. BTW - I saw Nathan yesterday at Lowes...he looked as lost as me.
