Sun is shining, get ready!

What a glorious afternoon! So many of you were out visiting this afternoon & it was wonderful to see you! The season for dining al fresco is upon us, and there are some exciting changes along the Fremont corridor that you will enjoy! We're all looking forward to the spring weather coming up. ChaChaCha is planning an outdoor beer garden, Vinideus continues to engage us with French and music programs, GreenDog Pet Supply is planning a move to a larger space, Soluna's delicious menu beckons to us, and Amenity Shoes is jam packed with beautiful accessories and sandals for the sunny weather that lies ahead.

When you're out and about, please take note of your favorite businesses, and support local shops and restaurants as the economy turns around. We can't do it without you, and your loyalty and continued support are invaluable to us. Found on Fremont reports new customers who are fast becoming regulars, there are people enjoying the tables outside at Alameda Cafe and the Alameda Brew Pub, and ShopAdorn's Grand Opening in April was a huge success! Have you stocked up on your all natural beauty supplies? The sun is coming, and Emily at Camellia has everything you need to keep your skin safe and soft!

We were thrilled at the turnout for April's premier 2nd Friday on Fremont, and all signs point to a bustling 2nd Friday on May 14! If you're in the neighborhood, we would love to see you! There are so many wonderful businesses along our corridor who will stay open late, it would be a shame to miss any of it! In addition to the specials, live music, and late hours, this 2nd Friday will feature several additional vendors, including JamPDX, a very talented pottery duo who use traditional clay and *cake decorating* techniques to create exquisite vases, bowls, and other pieces; Anderson Soap Company, handmade soaps and lotions; and several other vendors, including sublime items from Provence, France, and there a monthly crafts table sponsored by SCRAP! Kid and family friendly, delicious food, glorious shopping... What more could we offer?

Join us Friday, May 14 for 2nd Friday... The fun and festivities begin at 5 pm!
