#AfropolitanHOU December 2015

December 18, 2015, the latest Afropolitan event took place at Q Lounge, Houston, Texas. Houstonians have slowly been warming up to this event since its inception, this time, it attracted a much younger crowd, more than likely heard the buzz from its soft launch.

The Afropolitan franchise is known for showcasing some noteworthy events like fashion shows, performances by some of our talents here in the diaspora, only time will tell what's in store for Houston.

A much more diverse crowd were noted at the December event, I got to interview quite a few. What brought them to this event? One common thread - social media and word of mouth. If you haven't heard yet, Afropolitan Houston will be taking place every 3rd Friday of the month, the first Houston event was November 2015. Afropolitan is known in cities like DC, Baltimore, New York and Maimi.

Enjoy the video below and I'll see you in one of the upcoming events.

Afropolitan Houston

November 20, 2015

Ever 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.
