Baltimore Homecoming Welcome Reception

Baltimore Homecoming kicked off its three-day event with a cocktail hour in the 414 Light Street 7th floor lounge.

A number of Baltimore movers-and-shakers mingled with Baltimore “alumni” – successful Baltimore natives who now live elsewhere.
The mission of the event is to connect various business leaders, encouraging investment in the city.
One of the evening’s best features? Zane Phllips from Local Oyster offering a mobile oyster bar.
