Sam Flax Exclusive for LRBN Dec 3


Hey all,

We’re revamping the Lady Rogue Business Network slowly but surely … adding features to the site, providing more structure for events, and working to bring you even better tools for connecting with your community.

Our informal board has been brainstorming meetup ideas … and Jen Pete’ of; and ;Stories of Gen really hit the ball out of the park with this one.

Lady Rogue Business Network is excited to present an exclusive after-hours night at Sam Flax on the West Side. Two generations ago, Sam Flax operated a pencil cart in New York – today his grandson Lionel is revamping the brand for a new audience and new community.

Come hear Lionel’s story … enjoy some vino-powered crafting, exclusive LRBN shopping discounts, and snag your very own permanent LRBN discount card for future purchases.

Make a night of it by stopping by Urban Cottage – they’re having a very special holiday party; that night featuring LRBN members Farewell Paperie, Holy Vino and ¬†Concrete Lace.

See ya there!

Woot, woot! The November/December edition of Atlantan magazine is out, and rogueApron gets a shoutout! Check it online at, on pg. 108, or check the snaps below.

The text is hard to reproduce, so I typed it out here:

Since March 2008 Georgia Tech digital media grad student, “Lady Rogue” (she prefers to conceal her real name), has been staging quirky traveling dinners at farms and private gardens with themes ranging from Alice in Wonderland to a Great Depression breadline. The rogueApron ( underground dinners are as much Sixties-style happenings as food events, and a way to intersect with like-minded people in the manner of social media like Facebook. LadyRogue calls her club, which attracts a devoted group of socially conscious diner and often features random acts of kindness, like free pie giveaways, “the absolute best thing that has ever happened to me.”
