Caramba Café hosted our Business Networking Soiree on March 20, 2014. What a blast! We met new people, reconnected with familiar folks and got to try the Platinum Margarita, for which Caramba Café was on course to win best margarita from Margarita Madness. We also got to sample some of the delicious bites offered by Caramba Café. We thank them for their generosity in hosting us. Swing by and try one of those margaritas-you won’t regret it!
