These photos are from our Business & Beer/Meetup event that we had last night at Sophie’s Place, one of our favorite gastropubs, located in the Riviera Village in Redondo Beach, CA. We had a nice turnout of eight with a couple of them coming as a direct result of our using Meetup.com as a networking tool. Since the group was a little smaller than normal, it gave us an opportunity to interact more with our new guests. Our hosts, Sophie’s Place, even gave Tanya a slice of carrot cake (which she sliced up to share) and we had a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” sung to her by several patrons. It is probably a good thing that no one recorded that.
Business & Beer is now nine months old and we have been enjoying putting on these networking events. As summer approaches I am sure our gatherings will begin setting some new attendance records; I have met many people that have said they want to check it out. If you live or work in the South Bay, and networking is part of how you make your living, you should check out the Business & Beer networking group; especially if you enjoy craft beer. It is a good group of people and we have a good time, all while finding ways we can work together.
