The San Francisco Giants won the World Series.

Halloween = Wednesday of this week.

Fall back on Sunday and we get an extra hour of sleep.

Election Day is next Tuesday.

The holidays are coming.

We have enough reasons -- come out, celebrate, and mingle! : - )

There's no content or speaker at this event -- just business and social networking.

To facilitate more effective, efficient and interactive networking, we may set aside a little time for "lightning announcements".

Attendees will have the opportunity to make an announcement about a new product, financing need, employment opening, employment request, desire to meet a co-founder or just tell everyone else a little about themselves.

And, we have at least five door prizes for some lucky entrepreneurs!

Build your business and social network - face to face!

Come out and enjoy a great evening of good food, liquid refreshments, and connecting. Come prepared with your best smile, a firm handshake, and a great personality.

You may meet your next business collaborator, client, employer, employee, friend, or tennis partner!

Getting off your smart phone for a couple of hours will do you some good! : -)

Meet Silicon Valley business people, Internet entrepreneurs, developers, engineers, attorneys, bloggers, academics, financiers, and investors. And, yes, tennis players.

It's okay if you have to come late and/or leave early. Feel free to drop in whenever you can. You can stay for 15 minutes or for two hours.


You may park in the Cal Train parking lot or in the parking lot behind the hotel.

You can also park in the fee lot for the hotel by entering in the front of the hotel.

There is no validated parking for this event, so attendees are responsible for paying for parking fees.
