A Diverse Fair Haven Community with Historic Homes and a Beautiful Waterfront
As part of her effort to promote the diverse selection of stores and shops that New Haven offers, the Mayor this fall has been visiting a different neighborhood each week as part of her “Shop Local with the Mayor” initiative. This initiative seeks to leverage her office’s public profile to highlight for the media and public locally-owned small business retailer(s) and food vendors/restaurateurs throughout the city.
On Wednesday, December 3, from 5:30 to approximately 7:30 PM, the Mayor will bring “Shop Local with the Mayor” to Fair Haven, and she would like to invite everyone who lives or works in and around Grand Avenue, in particular, to join her at Grand Vin, 28 East Grand Avenue, for this occasion. In addition to meeting and chatting with the Mayor herself, community businesses and residents who attend will get the opportunity to sample some of the host’s beverages, enjoy complimentary light snacks from one or more Grand Avenue restaurants, and, perhaps equally importantly, meet and interact with each other.
In a similar vein, the Mayor will be supporting small business in the city more broadly by holding a press conference on Tuesday, November 25, at 10:30 AM in City Hall to proclaim Saturday, November 29, 2014 as “Small Business Day” in New Haven. After the press event, the public will be invited to join her and other public officials on a guided walk across the Green, down Chapel Street, and then up York Street to Broadway to call attention to a number of new retailers that recently have opened their businesses in New Haven. After a reception on Broadway, the Mayor then will conclude her tour by returning to Chapel Street to visit and express her appreciation to several small businesses for their longstanding commitment to New Haven.
