Dinner/Drink + Socializing/Networking


I booked the bar area of Baton Rouge for "dinner/drink and socializing" from 6pm to midnight. Trying to get discount for our group, but no promise for this time^^

I will encourage as many attendants from the entrepreneurship meeting to come as possible. I predict the peak of the crowd to be 6:30 pm and will last for a couple of hours till some people finish their drinks and leave.

If you don't plan to have dinner with the group, you are still more than welcome to drop by a bit and have a drink with us. There is an open area in front of the bar where people can stand and move around to chat and network...

We may not all stick around till midnight as I originally planned, though I got the reservation till that time.

Comments are welcome (before and/or after the event^^)!



PS: Welcome to invite/bring friends for networking/socializing purposes alone. Check out the Toronto Entrepreneurs page for most of the confirmed attendants.

    I love networking events because you never know when you might find that person that you can help. I believe the most important thing is helping other succeed and you will be successful. Does that make sense?

    I was unable to stay past 4pm due to another commitment, but I'm very glad that I attended - the presentations were solid and the bravery and dedication to detail impressive - looking forward to learning more.

    On a separate note, I noticed that we got two ratings as of 11:30 am, March 11. Aydin rated it as "5 stars" with some nice comments, while later on an anonymous person rated it with only "1 star" and brought the average rating down. I would appreciate the second rater if he/she can let me know what happened to his/her experience with this meetup, as well as whether he/she attended the meeting at all and whether that was an honest and informed rating...

    Most likely will be there in late evening... Just wondering where the dinner will be held, and where the after party is? Are they both in Council Chambers too?? What kind of setting will it be for those? Thanks.
