Last month, we decided to go to Carmela’s Bistro & Wine Bar ( for our Friends4Lunch networking event. Our group really enjoyed the amazing menu options, such as a mouth-watering bruschetta, mini chicken pot pie, and the star of the show – warm lobster bisque! We will definitely be back. Another local favorite of ours is The Copper Kettle downtown. We loved hosting Friends4Drinks there and diving into their huge selection of Moscow mules and other specialty drinks. A crowd favorite was the S’mores Hot Chocolate with house-made chocolate vodka. We sincerely appreciate our friends, clients, and guests who attended both these events!
