GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays - Monthly Happy Hour For Globally-Minded People

Please join us for the GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays Monthly Happy Hour For Globally-Minded People as we will be holding both our inaugural event at a new venue and our Two Year Anniversary of GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays!

GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is a regular monthly night of networking and socializing with different themes and different activities - but always with an international flavor - on the first Thursday of every month. The event provides a wonderful opportunity to network with over 150 international and local professionals and students in the Pittsburgh area. Whether you come alone or with a friend, it is a great way to meet new people and engage in interesting conversations with a diverse crowd.

Some special new features for the August event:

  • $5 Admission
  • GlobalPittsburgh Networking PASSport (see below)
  • Complimentary appetizers
  • A chance to win a Fallingwater gift card
  • Entertaining vendors
  • Prize drawings

Globally-minded people in the Pittsburgh region love First Thursdays! To make you even happier and our event more attractive, we are introducing some new perks.

  • GlobalPittsburgh Networking PASSport (attendance stamp card). Collect stamps and turn them in for free drinks and prizes

We look forward to seeing you on August 1st. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, do not hesitate to call [masked] or email [masked].

GlobalPittsburgh is looking to partner with small businesses and organizations for this event.

    I have added some pictures from last night's event. Can't be more proud of how it went and how many positive feedback and compliments I heard!

    It was just an unorganized, chaotic mixer. The registration table was not very hospitable. I thought there would be some program or introductions. I can't stand around for reasons of disability, so I went to the restaurant area, sat down, and bought dinner. I got nothing for my $5.

      Mallory - sorry that you had a bad impression. All 200 people seemed to liked the venue and the event. We did not promise a program, it is a happy hour to give people a chance to meet new friends. $5 was for the food that we provided. It was great, too! And 2 huge cakes that people enjoyed. We host this event for 2 years and we grew our attendance from 30 people to over 200 people.

    I got an email that this venue is changed, but I don't see any information here about that. Is the venue changed or not? And if changed, to where?

      What is posted is correct, but it is a new location than the meeting has previously been been held. Good question.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
