(Chicago Defender) — What started out as an informal, after work gathering for drinks at the South Loop Hotel on the near downtown has evolved two years later into a weekly social networking event often attended by entrepreneurs, business professionals and the Black middle class.  In November, Business Spotlight Networking outgrew the hotel and was moved to the Red Kiva lounge in the West Loop at 1108 W. Randolph St. BSN is held every Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.  “This event is designed and structured in a way to meet people of interest,” said host and co-founder Dwayne Hirsch. “This is not a party spot but a gathering of interesting and everyday people who want to listen and offer good dialogue.”  The age range of attendees at the BSN is between 25 and 45, according to Hirsch, who added that he is also considering an online show for the event.  Each week a guest is invited to join Hirsch onstage to be interviewed. Recently actor Brian Hooks, from such films as 3 Strikes and Soul Plane, was the featured guest.
