Wilmington Downtowners Meet and Mingle at Front Street Brewery 12/2/09

Wednesday this week I went to three Wilmington area business networking events before my weekly mastermind call. The first event was the Wilmington Downtowner's Meet & Mingle, which is held the first Wednesday of each month on the third floor of Front Street Brewery from 5-6:30PM.

Below Shannan Bowen of the Star News (left) and Ellie Craig of Front Street Brewery (right) listen as Joan Loch of Crescent Moon glass gallery in the Cotton Exchange talks about locally produced glass art.

Ellie Craig is Front Street Brewery's Marketing Director. She introduced me to Carrie Egerton, FSB's new Community Outreach Marketing associate.

Here's a better photo of Shannan, who covers Social Media and Breaking News for the Star News.

Nick Arbia of ADT and Mike Eakins of WWAY TV3.

Joan Loch talking with Richard Davis, the owner of Browncoat Pub & Theatre, Wilmington and actually North Carolina's only non-profit location that serves alcohol. All profits benefit the arts.

Some folks from Edge of Urge clothing boutique talk with Jenn Beddoes of Glynne Soaps.

Susan Seltzer of Wrightsville Builders and Joan Loch.

Here's another shot of Joan - the reflection of the flash on the monitor looks like an appropriate holiday star.

Thanks again Front Street Brewery, as usual this was a very nice event and it's good to have a regular event with a downtown theme.
