2. Saved by the Bell
January 28 | 5:00 - 7:30 pm
Central Bar + Restaurant
Bellevue Recess returns to its roots at Central Bar this month... and it's bigger and better than ever.
Our winter recess features drinks, hors d'oeuvres, a live dj, games, networking, and the most fun you should legally be allowed to have on a Tuesday night in January.
3. Capitol Happenings
January 29 | 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
On Monday, the Legislature began its 60 day session. The Bellevue Chamber was there to celebrate the event and keep tabs on all the action. Join us January 29 for "Chamber Day" on Capitol Hill where you'll meet elected leaders face-to-face to discuss our community priorities.
4. Making an Impact
Last week, 15 legislators, the Attorney General, and over 350 business leaders from the region attended our Legislative Breakfast at the Hyatt.
We rolled out the East King Chambers' Legislative Agenda and the Bellevue Chamber Transportation Priorities 2020. We'll be pitching these plans in Olympia this session. Let us know if you want to be involved >
5. Keep Cold and Panic On
The first snow of 2020 swept through Bellevue, the Eastside, and the surrounding region with school closures, icy roads, and a looming sense of dread. Street crews have worked tirelessly to keep roads safe, but be sure to slow down and take extra care when driving.
