Every third Thursday from 11:30am - 1pm at the Gathering Space next to Sammy's Ave Eatery (1101 W Broadway Ave.). These FREE catered lunches are open to everyone and are opportunities for current and prospective business owners to connect and learn business best practices through a different topic each month. They’re a collaboration between NEON and the West Broadway Business and Area Coalition (WBC). Follow NEON on Facebook, twitter, or Instagram for information on upcoming luncheons. See below for the 2020 luncheon schedule through December and for recorded luncheons starting May 2020.

In light of the pandemic, luncheons are currently being held virtually via Zoom from 12pm - 1pm. Register via Eventbrite to receive the Zoom link. Catered lunches available for pick-up at various locations on West Broadway.
