November 20, 2015Ever heard of the largest Afro-Caribbean mixer in the diaspora? Check out a new event in Houston.
#AfropolitanHou had a soft launch, attracting young African, African-American and Caribbean professionals to one place in Downtown Houston where they mixed and mingled over cocktails and unwound from their hectic schedules. Quite an impressive crowd turned up for this event.
Brought by Drumpulse Entertainment, Afropolitan mixers have been around a while in cities like New York, Miami, DC and Baltimore, serving up the hottest young professionals who want to network, some you won't find in your typical nightclubs. Folks I interviewed appreciate what this event had to offer, something different from the norm, these folks are tired of the same places like Belvedere and Zanzibar, they also appreciate the very diverse crowd from different parts of Africa and the Caribbean. There's nothing soft about this launch, I'd go ahead and presume this event is here to stay and would match the success of cities like New York and Miami.
Afropolitan Houston will take place every third Fridays of the month, be sure to check out their Facebook page and website to R.S.V.P.
