Shout out to the organizers of last night’s Mix & Mingle event at the new Aloft Hotel at the Inner Harbor. We saw some familiar faces among the fashionable crowd. The after-work event was coordinated by Cuse Culture Magazine, UMEA and the William H. Johnson Bar Association of CNY. Hopefully in the future they can also charter a boat for a harbor/lake cruise.
