– Editor’s Note:
Our locally owned businesses are getting the message that they must be aggressive themselves in target-marketing their businesses, with several making investments by branding and advertising in Thurston Talk and Experience Olympia and Beyond. As this blog recently referenced, these businesses are driving visitors and tourism dollars to Yelm, boosting this bedroom community’s economic vitality. Bravo for them in taking promotion and economic development into their own hands.
– “Uptown Lounge: Handcrafted Cocktails and Cuisine in the Heart of Yelm”
“If you haven’t spent a night out at Yelm’s Uptown Lounge, it might be time. The 21+ restaurant and bar, adjacent to the Yelm Cinemas, is Yelm’s newest hangout spot and locals and visitors from surrounding areas are coming back for more.”
“General manager Vanessa Diaz shares that, “in 2018 we’re going to expand our offerings so we’re touching base with everyone in the community.” And that means more partnerships with the adjacent theater for specially themed “dinner and a movie” nights including classic films and 80s hits,” by Thurston Talk Editor.
