Do you think you know all there is to know about the Lincoln County business community? Are you well-versed on what makes our economy tick? Prove it at a fun and casual after-hours event set for Thursday, Feb. 13, from 6-8 p.m. in Lincoln City.
The Oregon Coast Community College Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will host its next business pub talk at Marci’s Bar & Bistro in Lincoln City. The event will feature a lively round of trivia that will focus on the local business community and the broader county economy.
“A trivia contest based on ‘the local economy’ may sound like a real snooze-fest,” said Misty Lambrecht, the SBDC’s Small Business Management Program coordinator. “But we promise, it’ll be a lot of fun. And, best of all, every participant will get to sample a variety of Marci’s wonderful appetizers!”
Lambrecht added there will be a cash bar available for purchase of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
After the trivia, participants will be invited to pass the microphone around and share announcements about products and services and other news related to their businesses.
“Our pub talks always provide lots of opportunity for local businesspeople to meet and talk with others,” Lambrecht said. “Each time we host one of these, business cards and contact information is exchanged and new relationships are forged.”
Marci Baker, owner of Marci’s Bar & Bistro, is a graduate of the Small Business Management Program at the SBDC. She and her fiancé also recently opened the Zest Creperie and Tea House. Both businesses are along Highway 101 in Lincoln City’s Oceanlake District.
