Whelp, it was bound to happen one day and that day has finally arrived – that’s right, another thing to add onto your list of things to do in Springfield, MO.! While we love going around town trying new restaurants, seeing downtown Springfield from the Trolley Bike, making our own beer, and checking out the best happy hours in town, we’ve decided it would be that much more fun to do it with YOU!
As such, we’ve started a group on Meetup.com and we are setting up several different schmooze events – some coed, some for business networking, and some for just the la la ladies, and you are invited!
But Jana, Is There a Set Schedule for Each of These Events?
The short and quick answer, NOPE! We are aiming for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.
Why Are These Events Scheduled In the Middle of the Week?
That’s easy, we want to bring business to Springfield’s local establishments on nights which aren’t so busy! Not only do we get to enjoy local food, drinks and specials, but it’s easier to chat and meet with new friends in Springfield, MO. without needing to yell over 50 other people!
Is There an Age Restriction?
Yes, there is – we ask that everyone who attends is 21 and up. Most places will card anyone who looks 40 or under. Plus, we ask that everyone drinks responsibly!
Is This One of Those Dating Things?
Nope! We want to keep things light and classy. Although, we understand that sometimes sparks may fly between two attendees unintentionally. If you find someone special at one of our events, right on! Just keep the PDA to a minimum!
Tell Me More About the Business Networking Events!
These events will be for those who want to meet other like-minded entrepreneurs and/or business owners in a laid-back setting. Even if you don’t own your own business you are invited. Who knows? Maybe you want to start one eventually, or maybe you are looking to meet a qualified professional who can meet your needs in terms of construction, health and wellness, pest removal, financial planning or … you get the idea.
But please, whatever you do, keep the hard-selling to a minimum. No, I do not want a windshield wiper 5000!
