Lake Charles is really a diverse city. You have folks from various cultures who are living here in the city. When I moved here in 2001 from Meridian. I knew that there was plenty of opportunities for growth in the city.

Last night there was an event where some of the business movers and shakers in the city was in attendance. It all went down at 2425 Bar and Lounge and the event was Cocktails and Conversations.

The event was spearheaded by consultant extraordinaire and local business owner Ashley Collins and I think I can call it a successful event. I had a great time out with some friends and got the opportunity to meet some new ones as well. There are plans to host another one next month and if you're a business or looking to network with businesses here in the Lake Area, then stay tuned here for more details to come.
