Corpus Christi Business News February Issue
Female leaders rule in the February issue of Corpus Christi Business News. Alyssa Barrera is the new executive director of the Downtown Management District, and the Corpus Christi YWCA announced its annual Y Women in Careers Awards, which honors eight women in leadership positions in the Coastal Bend. Read about that, the Barefoot Mardi Gras parade and a new Chicano Art exhibit at the Art Museum of South Texas in this month’s issue — and that’s just the front page!
You’ll also find features on the following businesses:
• Vick’s Famous Burgers, which is building a new restaurant next to its original location;
• Cups Graphics and Screen Printing, a full-service silk-screen printing business;
• A Wavell Flagpole, which got its start lining a local highway with flags to welcome President George H.W. Bush to town;
• The Pavilions of Rockport, where the beach is back in business, ready for the onslaught of spring and summer visitors.
On page two, you’ll get some insight into how to make advertising in both print and digital easy, affordable and successful.
In the news, you’ll read about what the Corpus Christi City Council had to say about Airbnb.com and how the online vacation rental service answered. (It all boils down to hotel occupancy taxes, of course.)
Other news includes stories on:
• possible uses of the land under the current Harbor Bridge once that structure is gone;
• what voluntourism means and how Rockport plans to make it part of hurricane recovery;
• a new festival that is the “taco” the town;
• why the Visitors Center is going on the road;
• how the ARK animal rehabilitation center in Port Aransas has reopened and is rescuing a record number of cold-stunned turtles;
• and a new ABC-TV program roughly based on Selena.
The February issue also features a story about Mission 911, a homeless shelter that has evolved into a mentorship program to help individuals and families break the cycle of poverty.
And, of course, you’ll also find a full page of event listings and information on how to use the most comprehensive, interactive online calendar of events in the area at 101corpuschristi.com/EVENTS.
