This Summer, like last year, we took advantage of the slow season in the Valley and hosted a series of fun Upper West Side PHX Summer Pop-Up Events! We got to offer a great deal to our followers at each event and help support local businesses in the process. If that wasn't enough, we also gave away awesome prizes at each event!
We kicked off the Summer with a class at Pure Barre Arrowhead in June followed by brunch at Bottega Pizzeria Ristorante. Next up was Boutique & Brunch at Urban Margarita with Desert Bloom by M & M. We finished off our Summer events most recently with Ice Skating Night on August 24th. We want to take a minute to recap that event and let you know what is coming up next!
Thank you to everyone that attended our first family-friendly event! We had our biggest turn out ever! We love that Upper West Siders come out to support local businesses and this community movement time after time! Ice skating was a nice break from the raging heat and we know the kids loved it! We hope to host another ice skating event in the future for anyone that wants to try it again or couldn't make it to this event. A HUGE thank you to our amazing hosts for planning everything, as well as providing skating lessons, volunteers, and discounts:

Community engagement is essential to making this movement successful! Due to the popularity of our Summer events, we plan to continue hosting events throughout the Fall. We're planning more family-friendly events as well as our regular brunch/happy hour events. Details to follow... stay tuned!
