Many hands make 2013 Gallery Walk a huge success

Two Fridays ago, Juneau kicked off the 2013 holiday season with one of the most successful Gallery Walk events ever. A fantastic turnout despite frigid temperatures (but no rain, at least), much art was viewed, many gifts were purchased and a moveable feast of refreshments enjoyed — we even closed off Front Street for a full-fledged block party, with a DJ and dancing and everything. The Downtown Business Association would like to thank everyone who made Gallery Walk possible: the Juneau Empire, for its generous advertising package and editorial coverage; Mayor Merrill Sanford, City Manager Kim Kiefer and the entire City Council for their tireless effort and advocacy; the Juneau Economic Development Council (JEDC), a key partner not only for Gallery Walk, but downtown revitalization in general; the Juneau Police Department for providing event safety and, of course, DJ Manu for the block-rocking beats. Most of all, we heartily thank the people of Juneau. This is just the first of many community events currently in the works. Your support is critical to revitalizing, re-inventing and, above all, re-invigorating the Capital City.

Thanks again, and happy holidays,

Jill Ramiel, President, Downtown Business Association – Juneau; Owner, Silverbow Restaurant Bakery & Inn

Guy About Town: Help for a town made of people

Hey, all! I hope you’ve been having a healthy, enjoyable January despite the meteorological mood swings. Like seriously, it’s like it can’t decide whether it wants to try to rip the door off my house or knock on it gingerly and sell me cookies. I have the fortune, however, of not having windows in my office. See, I don’t have to watch the tumultuous perpetual gray on the one hand, and on the other I don’t have to feel bad about being inside when it’s sunny. I just turn on my Costa Rica webcam and put my shades and Pet Sounds album on and party with those spreadsheets all day long.
