One of the groups that is celebrating the resurgence if downtown Phoenix is RadiatePhx, a downtown centered non-traditional networking group. RadiatePhx is more about community building, knowledge sharing and supporting local business than swapping business cards. In other words it is the type of group that Jane would support. The group meets that last Tuesday of each month at different central Phoenix establishments with a guest speaker to discuss place making, design, community building and what’s going on in our urban core.
This month the Radiators are gathering at one of the local businesses that will be highlighted during Jane’s Walk Phoenix: The Turf Restaurant & Pub in downtown Phoenix. The group will be joined by Malissa Geer. Malissa is the Community Engagement Liaison at the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus. who serves as a catalyst to enrich the social, cultural, economic, and political life of the community that surrounds ASU Downtown Phoenix campus.
We will be meeting from 5:30-7:30pm and will also hear from Turf’s owner Andrew Mirtich about how ASU and other factors influenced their decision in selecting Turf’s location. I will also be making a brief presentation about Jane’s Walk Phoenix.
All Radiators get 15% off their bill tomorrow night. That’s on top of the 50 cents off happy hour specials.
