Strictly Business at Caprice Bistro, January 6, 2010

After I left the Downtowner's Meet & Mingle I walked to 10 Market Street to Caprice Bistro. Upstairs in the fabulous sofa bar was this week's Big Talker FM Strictly Business

The first folks I saw were Sea-Comm Media producer and photographer Paige Freeman, Attorney Walter Skinner of Williams Mullen and Elaine Huston of Pre-Paid Legal.

I also met Mike LaBruno of All-Brite residential and commercial pressure washing and Ken and Gina Schiess. Ken's a financial planner with HdVest and Gina is a programmer and IT manager.

Sea-Comm Media Salesman Supreme Derek Sellers and Suzy Boyko, a teacher with the Friends School of Wilmington.

Paige had help from Dana Webb with the raffle drawings (the non profit beneficiary was Wilmington Downtown, Inc.). Big Talker morning show host Curtis Wright was at the mike.

Robert Smith of Bob King Motors, Elaine Huston, and Paul Whitehouse of Lopermedia.

Here's another shot of Paul.
