Wine & Cheese Networking
Event date: September 16 2008

Talking, tasting, connecting, tasting, exchanging business cards, tasting, toasting, tasting, that was the rhythm of the NYC Webgrrls Wine Tasting Networking Event at Moore Brothers Wine Company (33 East 20th Street in Manhattan) and these events have become some of the most popular events for NYC Webgrrls.

The group was an exceptional mix of entrepreneurs, filmmakers and producers, photographers, authors and diet gurus, developers, graphic designers, media people, market experts and more. Everyone tasted at their own pace, and discussed wine, work, technology, and more! We all were able to take the time to have conversations and get to know each other. The event was low key, casual, and a lot of fun.

Elizabeth A. Smith, a Project Manager/Business Analyst said it best,

"Webgrrls Networking events are astoundingly productive on many levels:

  • They are intellectually stimulating
  • They provide the opportunity to share and exchange ideas with other women (and) men from the Internet/Web Development/Technology community.
  • The diversity of participants and their willingness to share experiences, and opportunities is a refreshing change from most networking events where the focus is single-minded and sharing is not the norm.
  • In my opinion, joining Webgrrls is a no-brainer - if you want to expand your horizons, learn new techniques, share ideas or just bounce ideas off other professional, and get feedback and help, search for new job opportunities, then Webgrrls is the community to belong to."

David Moore was on hand to pour and inform about, in rich detail, the wines of the night. The wines of the evening were:

“Last night’s networking event at Moore Brothers was my first time at a WebGrrls event and I was very glad I went! I enjoyed meeting so many interesting people and look forward to getting to know everyone better at future events.”
Michelle Brusyo - Manager, Business Development – Search Marketing
