BBC Friday 17 May 2019 – New “Ba Sa” Bainbridge Vietnamese Restaurant

This BBC Friday join us for a fun conversation with Trinh Nguyen about the new Vietnamese Restaurant Ba Sa, opening soon on Bainbridge Island (in the old Cafe Nola location, 101 Winslow Way East)

PhoT&N (photnpoulsbo.comhas been a very successful culinary destination in Poulsbo for many years, and now Ba Sa (basabainbridgeisland.com) will continue that family tradition. 

As with PhoT&N in Poulsbo, Ba Sa is inspired by the second generation of the Nguyen family to bring comfort food and dishes reflecting our travels to Vietnam, China, and Southeast Asia. Trinh is a restaurateur whose passion lies in cooking, eating, and traveling. Trinh learned cooking from PhoT&N founders Rang and Huyen. Our head chef Thai was inspired both by his exposure to Japanese and Southeast Asian cuisines as well as the energy of the food & fashion capital, New York City, where he studied at the Institute Of Culinary Education.

BBC Friday 10 May 2019 – Branding Bainbridge

This BBC Friday join us for a Branding Bainbridge Business Brainstorming Roundtable. How can Bainbridge Island become a year-round event destination? How might the many places, products, and businesses on Bainbridge fashion a unified Island identity?

Everyone has a brand. Some are intentional, some are earned by actions, some good, and others not so good. What message do we, as a place on Google maps, represent to the outside world, to visitors, to those considering moving their businesses to Bainbridge? Do we come across as closed and insular? Or looking to the future, innovative, creative? 

A Bainbridge Brand should be true to our message: to visitors, businesses, and residents. Bring your thoughts, ideas, visions, brains, for a lively Bainbridge Brand Business Strategy Roundtable. (See: visitbainbridge.com)

So Invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise!
