Meet the Brewer Pub Crawl
The Salem Creative Network celebrates the second anniversary of the Creative Pub Crawl on Saturday, July 16 with a “Meet the Brewer” Pub Crawl.

Participants will receive samples with purchase of $10 wristbands, available at the venues during the event.
During the past two years, the monthly event has drawn more than 2500 people downtown in an effort to revitalize the downtown economy, increase networking opportunities and provide a creative outlet for those interested in improving nightlife in Salem.

Themed crawls are every two months now. Upcoming dates, themes:

August 19 Downtown Luau
October 21 Zombie Crawl
December 16 Sno-Ball

Entertainment zone and the Economic Improvement District
The initial City Council work session occurs Monday, July 11, 5:30 pm at the Salem Public Library Anderson room. Unsure of the goals, topic but it should deal with the hospitality zone assessment proposed for downtown. Here’s a recent report about an assessment in Milwaukie, Wisconsin.. After the work session, the EID staff report will be discussed at the council meeting. This basically allows the city to ask property owners to select an administrator for the district. Whichever group gets the first option at the remonstrance process will likely get the job, although in this no-tax environment, a vote of no-confidence for all groups could happen.
