The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) Northwest Chapter’s inaugural special event, “Rooftop Rendezvous,” will be held Monday, March 6, 2017 on the roof of the Remington Suite Hotel & Spa, 220 Travis Street in Shreveport, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Open to the public, it will feature delicious food from some of the best 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.
“On behalf of the LRA Northwest Chapter, we are so excited to bring Rooftop Rendezvous to our members and the public,” said LRA Northwest Chapter President Jason McKinney. “We are very lucky to partner with such a terrific venue like the Remington, whose fabulous views of the Shreveport skyline will add a great ambience to this event. It will be a wonderful party with fantastic food and entertainment, all for great causes.”
Partygoers should bring their appetites, as they will be able to enjoy tastes from such restaurants as Stone Forks, Ernest’s Orleans, 1800 Prime and Blue Smokehouse, 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, “You Can’t Drown the Blues,” to take center stage.
A portion of the proceeds from Rooftop Rendezvous will benefit the LRA Northwest Chapter’s annual Hospitality PAC and LRA Education Foundation (LRAEF) goals. 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 Elks Care Foundation will also receive a portion of the proceeds.
Sponsors for the 2017 Rooftop Rendezvous include: Remington Suite Hotel & Spa and the Elks Care Foundation.
Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased in advance at $40 (parking is included in the ticket price). They can be purchased online at www.LRA.org (view Upcoming Events).
