Sometimes the best part about social media is the social part that occurs IRL. I have been lucky enough to meet some really amazing people through social media, including some of my closest friends! Did you know that I even met my neighbour through social media? I recognized her photos of our neighbourhood on Instagram and we met up at a local bar for drinks one night.
I wanted to let you know about a fun social and networking event organized by some tweeps I know:
AfterWorkDrinksTO is the brainchild of some social professionals in Toronto. They posted one of their meetups on Twitter and opened it up to other socially active professionals and before they knew it, their small group had grown in a big way! Their goal: an ongoing social and networking event to celebrate happy hour, relax, and socialize!
Their next event is coming up on April 23rd from 6-9pm. Your ticket (must be purchased in advance) includes 3 drink tickets from sponsors Innis & Gunn, Mont Gay Rum, and Select Wines and a bite to eat! $5 from your ticket also goes towards Dress For Success and Fynn’s of Temple Bar will be offering food and drink specials for attendees all evening.
Enjoy live music and dancing, prize giveaways and swag, contests, and a prize for the Best Dressed for Success Attendee! Need a ride home? Bring your business cards and enter to win a $25 Hailo credit.
RSVP: Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available on Eventbrite for $20.
