Stephen Zralek's Watercooler Networking Event to Feature "The Art of Collecting Fine Art"

The next Watercooler networking event will be held on Monday, September 13, 2010, at 5:30 PM at the Stanford Fine Art Gallery in Belle Meade, at 6608 Highway 100, just past the Hwy 100/70 split.


  We have relocated this upcoming WaterCooler to allow our future host, Fish & Co, to complete its renovations.  There is no charge for attending this WaterCooler and complementary wine will be available.  What better reward for making the trek to the backwoods of Belle Meade than this informal networking and learning opportunity?  (Networking from 5:30 to 6:00; Ed begins his presentation around 6:00.)
