Wow, thank you so much! I actually haven’t heard of this place! I’m checking it out right now

Yay! 

I’ve seen a lot of great tattoos done in the Fresno Area. Drake Bell even drove to downtown Fresno to get a tattoo from Zoombie Nation. Ha! 

Word-of-mouth is the most powerful tool of advertising. Seventy-four percent of consumers rely of social networks before making a purchase (Source: Constant Contact, 2013).  

You don’t always have to spend money to support a business. You can write a review. Facebook, Yelp, Google+, and your blog are a few outlets. Small businesses can’t devote most of their budget on marketing, so your reviews help the local community tremendously.  

I have a Yelp account, if you want to add me. :)

All over the place. I was born in Illinois but then moved to Vermont, then to Colorado, then to my favorite place on earth known as Oregon, and now I currently reside in a shit hole known as Clovis, California. Just a tip, if you go to Cali stay as far away as possible from Clovis and Fresno

..well, I guess I’m screwed.

Fulton Mall in Fresno, CA - "Pipes" water fountain by Stan Bitters

We opened our doors on Monday, September 16, 2013. Hey, this dinner is exactly 1 year later. Yep, against all of the odds, we’ve made it a year. We’ll have a special dinner. We’ll recognize the folks who have helped us survive this first trip around the sun. Craig will give you the real story and we’ll share pictures and events to remind us how much has happened on this journey we call Peeve’s.

Peeve’s is having their first anniversary dinner, to-night (September 16, 2014, starting 6:00PM)!

Someone asked me how the pub has become to be so successful in its first year. It’s located on the Fulton Mall. A pedestrian mall in downtown Fresno is not the most visible location. Nor do people find it to be the most inviting place. I think the reason why they’ve are successful is because they have the mentality that a business cannot blame the economy for its failures. You have to adapt to the changes in economic environment and the community. I think they’ve done just that.

These lessons are important to me. I would love to see more people attend. 

I’ve been part of Fresno’s Lindy Hop scene for three years and our community has not grown in size. It’s hard seeing Chris and Kellie (my dance instructors) spend several years trying to grow a wonderful community. I want to see it grow.

Dancing is my “happy pill.” I forget to take it every day but when I do remember, my day brightens up. It’s been kind to me and I’m thankful I found swing dancing.

We all have that desire to be part of a community and a Lindy Hop community is a wonderful thing to be part of. These people want to dance. These people want to be silly and geek out about Doctor Who. These people want to express their passion for all things vintage and jazz music. It’s not the kind of dance where everyone’s intention is to hit on you. It’s easy to feel comfortable in a Lindy Hop community. I’ve traveled solo to Seattle to attend a dance event. I plan on traveling solo to Austin for another dance event. I never worry about feeling scared and alone in a big city. I know I’ll meet people similar to me.

So, Try it out! Be part of the community! I’ll see you Thursday, yes?

Here’s a video of Lindy Hop, in case you’re wondering what the heck the dance looks like.

Hey I just wanted to say thanks for the likes and great job on your blog. Fresno needs more people like you!

Thank you! I appreciate the kind words. :D

I admire the amount of work you put in your art! My friend, Cliff, and I met you at ArtHouse during Arthop, last spring…if I remember correctly. 

Downtown Fresno events, new businesses, construction updates, opportunities for artists…the list goes on!
