BBC Friday 7 June 2019 – Branding Bainbridge, Part 2

This BBC Friday join us for Branding Bainbridge, Part 2. A Business Brainstorming Roundtable. We’ll pick up where we left off last time….  We also have an update on Exciting ideas For Business & “Way-finding” Signage On Bainbridge! (Note: City Signage Info Packet pdf.)

How can Bainbridge become a year-round (off season) event, art, culinary, and recreation destination? How about an annual “Bainbridge Island Rain Festival!” How might the many places, products, and businesses on Bainbridge fashion a unified Island identity? AND how can a new Island business and way-finding signage program fit into development of an Island-wide identity?

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? Are we as an island looking to our community and regional future with innovation and creativity? 

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

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.
