CREATIVE PLACEMAKING EVENTS


Restaurant Crawls

The Apache Boulevard corridor undoubtedly has the best food from around the world all within a very central and accessible location in Tempe. It is also a simple known fact that if you visit at least five restaurants in the corridor, you will become addicted to at least one of them. This is why restaurant owners came together with NEDCO as a coordinator to put together restaurant crawls. Five restaurants in three hours, full of tasting delicious flavors and connecting with other folks who enjoy quality food, for a low cost. Celebrating this incredible asset to the business community and getting people to come back to the area is what this placemaking, shared promotions event is all about. Look out for the next one by checking the calendar, or signing up to our newsletter.
