Bright Lights, Watch City – Waltham Local First Sparks Vibrant Business Community

Waltham Local First 2018 Directory Launch

Last night I attended Waltham Local First's Launch Party for their 2018 Directory.

Waltham Local First is a nonprofit network of independent, locally owned businesses working together to build a strong Waltham economy and to educate the public about the economic and cultural benefits of shopping local.

Solea Restaurant & Tapas Bar

The party was held at Solea Restaurant & Tapas Bar on Moody Street — also known as Waltham's Restaurant Row.

Delicious Buffet & Friendly Company

We had a private room with its own private bar and enjoyed a delicious tapas buffet. I met many engaging business owners including Financial Advisor, Andrew Moser; Charles River Photography Owner, Garylandscape architect Karen Sebastian; and Raj Sharma of Raj Collections.

2018 Member Directory

The printed 2018 Member Directory was on display and I learned it's available in member businesses and nonprofits all over Waltham. It's also available online and as a free app (search for Waltham 1st in your App store).

Gourmet Pottery

I sat next to Gourmet Pottery owner Dinny Myerson, who is celebrating 18 years of business and having a huge sale on Saturday, November 18th to celebrate the milestone.

Lizzy's Homemade Ice Cream

I snagged parking across the street in front  of two member businesses. Lizzy's Homemade Ice Cream makes yummy sundaes, ice cream cakes, and all varieties of ice cream in tantalizing flavors.

Red Bird Restaurant

Red Bird Restaurant offers seasonal new American cuisine, such as New England artisanal cheese and charcuterie, native corn soup, butternut squash risotto cakes, slow simmered pork ragu, and the Red Bird Burger — all sound delish!
