Hoping to answer the nagging question of “How should I end my work week?” the Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce offered this response: Knock back a cocktail or two with them.

imageThe gay business organization hosted its 4th Friday Networking at Vinocity in Kirkword on Sept. 25. Several dozen people enjoyed appetizers and specially-concocted mixed drinks in the restaurant’s second-floor loft.

They networked and glad-handed with fellow professionals and Dwanda Farmer, one of four candidates for the At-Large Post 1 spot on the Atlanta City Council.

Up next for the gay chamber: Networking to Pump Up Your Wallet, a special event set for Oct. 11, and a slate of six Business Builder Luncheons throughout the month.

A panel of attorneys tackled a broad range of issues that impact gay folks and their businesses. Four attorneys—Randy New, Dusty Branson, Aryeh Bondy and Brian Herman—joined DeKalb County Probate Court Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh and Grant Garris from “A Village to Raise,” an online forum for gay and straight parents.
