Pangea World Theater and Patrick's Cabaret invite Lake Street businesses, organizations, and residents to join us for the upcoming Lake Street Cultural Connect. These gatherings will be held every other month with the goal of bringing stakeholders and community members of Lake Street around the same table to engage in conversation about the future and sustainability of Lake Steet as a vibrant cultural and artistic corridor.
