Between the Pegasus Brewery and across from the Joule, young Black socialites could be seen slipping into an unlabeled doorway on Elm Street in Downtown Dallas. The reason? ElevenEleven: Connecting the Dots, a curated social gathering inside the Bamboo Room from 8pm CST to Midnight on 11/11/2021. For many individuals, Eleven-Eleven (or the time 11:11) is a symbolic number sequence that encourages manifestation, and according to organizers, this was the inspiration for the event.
“I wanted tonight to be an intentional networking event,” said Lauren Mac, a female promoter and business owner in the marketing industry.
DJ Trill, a prominent music engineer in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, was responsible for the carefully-crafted soundtrack of the evening.
