WE CAME. WE NETWORKED. WE STUFFED OUR FACES WITH lots OF CT TACOS.
November 16th's CT Small Business Party III proved bigger, better, and 10000x more EPIC than we ever could have imagined: from our packed house of 140+ small business owners/entrepreneurs/bloggers to the live artistry, professional photography and videography, two heavy-hitting raffles, and the tentpole EPIC Taco Competition, this party was one major chapter for the networking books, friends.
Though Turkey Day has come and gone, we're still feeling especially thankful for the gracious participation of all of our party liaisons, raffle donors, artists and vendors, and to all of our attendees who came out to party with us while promoting their badass local businesses. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING AND WE SINCERELY HOPE TO SEE YOUR FACES ONFEBRUARY 1!
We'd like to give an extra-special THANK YOU to our 6 crazy-talented CT Taco Competitors who brought their A-games to our first-annual CTSBP food competition: The Art of Yum, Catered Delight, Agave Mexican Restaurant, Taco Loco, Taqueria Mexicana, and Ocho Cafe quite literally brought the heat Thursday evening, each hungry for the win of one of our 4 hand-crafted taco trophies and the title of CT's Best Taco. Our honorary judges and attendees were in strong agreement that each taco was mouth-wateringly delicious - each with its own unique flair and distinction from the rest - but there were 2 entries that particularly took our voters' tastebuds by storm and secured the evening's big wins.

Though our next food competition will likely shift gears from the last party's tacotastic pandemonium, we so look forward to welcoming back all of our rockstar competitors and judges for more potent networking, cold drinks, & good times on February 1st! Location is TBD, but stay tuned as to our next meeting spot, activities & ticket details via the @ctsmallbusinessparty Instagram and our new Facebook page!
