Let’s Talk Womxn had its inaugural Houston event last year, and it was not only successful, it was impressive as a who’s who of the city’s top women in the local food and beverage industry. This incredible opportunity to celebrate and network with these professionals, billed this year as “Let’s Talk & Celebrate Gold Glamor Bash”, returns on Sunday, March 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to Caracol, located at 2200 Post Oak. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased online

It’s hosted by multiple-time James Beard Award “Outstanding Restaurateur” semifinalist Tracy Vaught and longstanding restaurateurs Alli Jarrett of Harold’s Restaurant, Bar & Terrace and Sharon Haynes of Tacos A Go Go, and there are over 20 other participating women business owners. The event is also timed to kick off Women’s History Month and is just ahead of International Women’s Day.

Let’s Talk Womxn is volunteer-operated, national coalition of women-owned food and beverage entrepreneurs that now has 700 members and a presence in 14 cities, all of which will have local celebrations. It was founded in Chicago by Rohini Dey, Ph.D., owner of Indian-Chinese restaurant Vermillion.

Despite the focus on female entrepreneurial success, men are welcome to attend. With the “gold glamor bash theme”, gold clothing and accessories are encouraged.
