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.

Ralph Rotella: Cobbler to Champion

At the New York State Fair, Ralph Rotella, who began collecting shoes for charity in 2011, was presented as the Today’s Option Champion. A Today’s Options Champion is someone who is using his or her time and talent to make a difference in the lives of an aging population. The vote was tallied previously, but today he was officially named the Grand Champion. Rotella won $10,000 for his charity, the Rescue Mission Alliance.

Deanna Germano, the Chef for Rent

Deanna Germano, Chef/Foodpreneur

Chef Deanna said this was her first time occupying the space just outside the Overpass Fest. Despite the distance from the event, which was maybe 500 feet or more, we give her kudos for making a nearly flawless jalapeno lemonade (a little bit savory and little bit sweet). In our opinion, she was a few sample cups away from selling out and or having her concoction become the official summer beverage of the Creekwalk.
