Roger Kash - what would we do without
this pillar of the community?
Anything food, live music, bar, drinks, dinner, lunch, late night, visiting on the deck outside, chilling at the bar inside, checking out the artwork, cutting up at Mardi gras, festival after parties, catered events, birthdays, graduations, receptions, karaoke... you name it.
How COOL is this. Thank you Jan for helping us share the story of Artmosphere.
