We must not have many "fair weather Webgrrls". Not even torrential downpours and dangerous lightening couldn't dissuade most from coming out on Wednesday July 12th to the Webgrrl Social Mixer held at Dani Restaurant. Over 40 professionals attended drawing both women and men with a wide range of backgrounds including entrepreneurs, freelance writers, producers, attorneys and publicists to name a few. Of course, we had many familiar faces and even more new attendees!
Most guests arrived promptly at 6:30 and quickly filled the "Webgrrls"
section of the restaurant. The Dani staff greeted the Webgrrls with a warm welcome and an offer to the the group of a deliciously refreshing cocktail named 'Charlotte Web' consisting of blood orange puree, vodka, mint syrup, sprite. The event lasted well beyond 8:30 with many continuing their conversations, exchanging business cards and setting future appointment to meet again. Others decided to stick around to try the food and continue to socialize. July's Mixer was in the true spirit of Webgrrl networking events where connections were being made and many strategic alliances being formed.
Brian Kaplan of Impression PR said: "What a great event! The level of professionals in attendance was exciting and invigorating and the atmosphere was perfect for making contacts and having meaningful conversations. I plan on joining the organization and attending many events to come."
Don't miss out on the August Mixer! See you on August 9, 2006 at Dani's!
