New Date, Time & Location For Downtown Action Committee Meetings


 

Beginning in March, the Chamber's Downtown Action Committee (DAC)meetings will be held on the 2nd Thursdays of the month at Bothell City Hall from 9:00-10:00am. Our next meeting is March 8.

 

 

The DAC is a Chamber-organized committee that helps to bring focus to improving the downtown Bothell business environment and building for continued progress. This committee provides a forum for Chamber members and downtown Bothell businesses to discuss issues of mutual interest, as well as approaches and solutions. The downtown area is loosely defined as the area from UW Bothell/Cascadia Campus to Northshore Senior Center across the river and up north to Rite-Aid. We welcome those with businesses inside or very close to this area. 

 

Thank you to Alexa's Cafe for graciously hosting us for many years!

Capitol Steps At Northshore Performing Arts Center
March 17
Doors Open 6:30 PM / Show Time 7:30 PM
Northshore Performing Arts Center, 18125 92nd. Ave. NE, Bothell

Enjoy a delightful evening of music and comedy at Capitol Steps presented by the Northshore Performing Arts Center. Over 30 years ago, the Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
    
This is a satire and musical political comedy where nothing is sacred and nobody is safe! This Washington, DC-based troupe produces hilarious musical and political satire. Capitol Steps truly "puts the mock in Democracy."  Buy Tickets Here
