**Photos by Elizabeth Rose
Over a hundred movers and shakers from across the State gathered at Pamplona Tapas Bar for the Sixth Annual Gentlemen's Dinner. Hosted by the gentlemen who attended, the event celebrated 200 years of Louisiana's history. Executive Chef Kevin Hawkins and Craig Crosby presented an impressive array of tapas complimented by superior Spanish wines, liquors and expertly-crafted cocktails. The cocktail hour followed with a welcome by Adam Lemoine and Joey Durel, an invocation in French by Monsignor Robert "Bob" Angelle, and a Toast and Roast by Fred Mills, Mike Michot and Paul Segura.

The event began seven years ago as a gathering to allow the gentlemen to break away from their everyday lives, visit with friends, reconnect with old ones and meet with new ones from all regions of the state. The men in attendance are committed to improving the State by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders to shape Louisiana's regional, global and industry agendas. This year's event was the biggest one yet, with attendees from seven of the eight regions of Louisiana
