This Allergic Girl went to a surprisingly fun event last night. Surprising because cocktail parties in New York can be notoriously clique-y affairs: clumps of people never breaking eye contact with the friends they brought; impossible to break into.
But this was all that a networking event should be: a venue with multiple spaces that allowed for great flow[it was at The Park ]; name tags so you could remember names and see what companies people work with/for; and participants who came to talk to people they didn’t already know!
It was a friendly, open group, many on the entreprenurial side, many in their mid-30s, all green focused. Say hey to some new friends: Jim, Mike, Eugene, Gil, Gary.
There are Green Drinks in many cities but if you don’t see yours listed, you could start one!
