LBA Hosts Annual Latino Community Mixer


This month, the Las Vegas Latin Bar Association (LBA) is hosting its second annual Latino Community Mixer. The mixer will take place on Wednesday, February 19, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Ricardo's restaurant, located at 4930 W. Flamingo Rd., Las Vegas. Please RSVP by e-mailing the LBA at


Various organizations will be participating in the event, and LBA board member, Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, will give a 10 to 15 minute presentation on the newly enacted Assembly Bill 74, which requires professional documentation preparers to register with the state of Nevada. This is an excellent opportunity to unwind while getting to know members of Latino-based organizations in the Las Vegas valley.
