It's hard to know what to make of "Barter and Network," a monthly social event for women entrepreneurs and executives. Today's gathering includes a fashion show courtesy of a boutique called Images. On the one hand, businesswomen shouldn't have to put on a tough front and pretend clothes don't interest them -- that is, they shouldn't have to pretend to be men. On the other hand, there have got to be more substantial issues that this group of high-power ladies would want to discuss. Example: why women still aren't taken as seriously as men in the workplace. Make some professional contacts today from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Seven Lounge, 2000 Bagby. For information, call 713-942-0683 or visit www.blackinkmediaevents.com. $10.
