So a few things we need to chat about.
As we have all noticed, the backroom of our favorite neighborhood establishment appeared to shrink like a silk shirt that you accidentally threw in the washer on hot and then forgot to tumble dry but really it didn't matter because you probably should have just Dry Cleaned it Only, like it says on the tag but who honestly reads those things anyways? The result: we are having our first meetup in the new digs of Le Chat Noire.
Ok, second on our list is to congratulate all of the 2009 New Orleans CityBusiness Innovators of the Year that were honored last Friday at the Downtown Sheraton Awards luncheon. We at Net2NO were proud to be among the select few honored but even more proud that we were able to share this honor with a great number of our friends: Launchpad, 504ward, The IP Building, Koda, PolicyPitch, eLympus, Body Evolution, FeelGoodz, New Orleans Brewing Co., NOVAC, and Koovoom, were just a few of Net2NO members and partners that were also honored.
