Congratulations to the folks at the  Houston NASA Clear Lake Hilton!  Their new contemporary look was a big hit at the mixer hosted at the Hilton in conjuntion with the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and the Bay Area HiltonHouston CVB. The newly remodeled meeting rooms, downstairs were lined with nicely designed, contempory brushed stainless tables. And with easy access to the pool area and a view of the lake, these rooms could easily be used for social gatherings and events.  As expected the food and beverages were delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by all that attended.  In fact, I overheard someone trying to learn how to mix a ' skinny margarita' while they were making their selections at the yummy pasta bar. check out the photos...

Clear Lake Shores Business Update
By Ronnie Richards

There is a lot of activity to report in the Clear Lake Shores Town Center and our adjoining ETJ along FM 2094. Opus Bistro is nearly complete and plans to open within two weeks. I’m told this upscale bistro style restaurant will feature continental cuisine, full bar and a state of the art kitchen. Nothing was spared on the interior design and it will add another dimension to dining choices not only in Clear Lake Shores. In my opinion Opus will be the most elegant and upscale eatery on this side of the lake. read on...

December 2009 - Business Development Update - Bay Area

Attached is the December Business Development from the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership. Report

The Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce has partnered with “Fund Times, Inc.”

to help with our ever-necessary fundraising. This program is new but has been receiving accolades from PTA/PTO’s, churches, and most recently a hospital, but this is the first time a Chamber has used it.

The parent company of Fund Times has been replacing watch batteries for national store chains for about 30 years (www.fundstimesinc.com). In fact, if you’ve ever taken a watch to a major department store at a mall, chances are they did the battery replacement and you paid the retail markup! And these folks at Fund Times don’t fool around…they use the finest Swiss batteries and guarantee the battery for two years. read on...

The local politicians served up a wonderful meal as waiters and were tipped according to their service to the public. read on...
