Eclectic List of Events on Tap for Tuesday
Tuesday is no longer the eventless night of the week it once was in Charlotte. Here are a few social events taking place this Tuesday, July 19, and they run the gamut from networking to spiritual to barhopping.
Charlotte Junior Chamber’s M-Night
The Junior Chamber, also known as the Jaycees, is hosting another membership social at one of the sweetest spots in town. Last month, more than 100 young professionals attended the event. It’s an opportunity to network and learn more about the organization. There will be complimentary hors d’oeuvres and desserts, and drink specials. 6-9 p.m. Free. Crave Dessert Bar, 500 W.

Executive Director David Hickman will continue the series on “Calling,” and worship will be provided by KC Clark and Queen City Worship (program lasts about an hour).
