Kamm's Live


Several Kamm's Corners bar and restaurant owners are joining together to participate in Kamm's Live, a new online social network and e-newsletter designed to promote the exciting things happening in the Kamm's Corners entertainment district.


Centered around a subscriber-based weekly email, website, Facebook chat, and Twitter feeds, Kamm's Live is being produced by local resident Terri Kevany, who has over 20 years of experience in the communications and marketing field. Not affiliated with KCDC, Kamm's Live will showcase the day-to-day (and night-to-night) offerings of the wide variety of lively bars, pubs, and restaurants and in the neighborhood.


Officially launching Wednesday, the e-newsletter will feature a weekly calendar of events, food and drink promotions, feature articles, food reviews, and more. The newsletter will also be the go-to place for all the latest local entertainment news.
