The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) Northwest Chapter is hosting its second annual “Rooftop Rendezvous,” on Thursday, September 27, 2018 on the roof of the Remington Suite Hotel & Spa, 220 Travis Street in Shreveport from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Open to the public, it will feature delicious food from some of the best LRA member restaurants in the Shreveport-Bossier area. Entertainment for the evening will be provided by the popular old-time string and percussion band, Magnolia Mae. A cash bar will be available all evening, along with beer and wine sampling.
“We are so excited to bring back Rooftop Rendezvous to our members and the public,” said LRA Northwest Chapter President Jason McKinney. “The fantastic food and entertainment, paired with the Remington’s unbelievable view of the Shreveport skyline, will make for an unforgettable night!”
Partygoers should bring their appetites, as they will be able to enjoy tastes from such restaurants as BeauJax, Boomtown Casino, Flying Heart Brewery, Fatty Arbuckle’s Pub, Texas Roadhouse, The Port Grill and Whisk, just to name a few! A silent auction will also be held during the event, with the top ticket item of the George Rodrigue print, “We Will Rise Again,” to take center stage.
A portion of the proceeds from Rooftop Rendezvous will benefit the LRA Education Foundation (LRAEF). The LRAEF, in turn, will use monies raised to further promote the restaurant industry as a career choice through its restaurant management and culinary arts program, ProStart®, offered at six northwest Louisiana schools. It will also enhance the restaurant community through expanded educational and career opportunities, including culinary and hospitality scholarships. The Young Professionals Initiative (YPI) will also receive a portion of the proceeds.
Sponsors for the 2018 Rooftop Rendezvous include: Remington Suite Hotel & Spa and the Young Professionals Initiative.
Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased in advance for $30 (parking is included). Reserved Sponsor Tables are also available. Visit www.LRA.org (view Featured Chapter Events) to purchase.
