Big news! Bellingham on Tap will launch in October as a free monthly magazine. We’ll have a full happy hour and bar special calendar along with local events coverage, sex advice, drink recipes, bar reviews, and similar tomfoolery. I’m working with a great crew of contributors and it’s going to be super rad. I’m going to be setting up an online fundraiser that will essentially act as an ad presale — look for it on Facebook, here, and anywhere else I can spam it out.
UPDATE: Here it is!
I’ve been working on a new project just for fun. It’s a guide to local happy hours and bar specials. I’m still gathering information, and there are some kinks to be worked out in getting the Weaver theme to generate a useful mobile site. Having just entered the 21st century with my first smartphone a couple of months ago, this is a really good learning experience for me. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Bellingham on Tap
Here’s the website I did for Maniac Roasting, roaster of Bellingham’s BEST COFFEE and supplier to Bellingham’s BEST COFFEEHOUSE. Owner Teri Bryant wanted a simple “brochure” site that would give the roastery an online presence and send visitors to the Maniac Facebook page.
I built the site with WordPress using the Weaver theme. While it’s a static site right now, I (or Teri) can easily add a blog, shopping cart or whatever other interactive features are needed in the future. For the moment, there’s a front page that features the roastery’s history and philosophy, a where-to-buy page of retail outlets, and a gallery page.
I just finished a website for my favorite after-work watering hole. You can see their full menus along with nightly food and drink specials. Did you know that Sunday is Philly Cheesesteak night at the Grand? Me neither! Check it out at http://grandavenuealehouse.com.
