Business folks put on show
Hundreds of people turned out to eat, drink, schmooze and network for the 12th annual Business Kaleidoscope at Caesars Tahoe Friday night.
Many people substituted a sit-down dinner for several trips down the aisles filled with booths offering free food provided by some of the finest restaurants in South Lake Tahoe.
Caesars’ own Executive Chef Evan Smith scooped up delights for hungry guests.
“They should have an Alka-Seltzer booth,” said Don Regis-Bilar, who had sampled most of what was on display. This included everything from pizza to oysters on the half shell.
Some businesses occupied the passers-by with tricks, games and tools of the trade like computer Web sites to sell their wares.
South Shore costume provider Sher’s Showstoppers wowed a cluster of people with a magician who made frogs out of cards.
Sessions Salon got in on the entertainment act, dressing the Mardi Gras part and giving out beads.
From snowmobiling and skiing to car shopping and finding a job, attendees perused the booths to answer the call for fun and work.
“I go all over, and people ask me how they can get a job in Lake Tahoe. They say, ‘I love it there,'” said Sean Sweeney, who was representing jobsintahoe.com.
Billed as Lake Tahoe’s biggest business party, the event put on by the Tahoe Douglas Chamber of Commerce brought out the community as well as visitors of the casino who came to the convention center to check out the commotion.
