Don’t let anyone tell you differently: networking is hard. The few times I’ve been lucky enough to have a successful networking experience, it’s happened naturally, in a relaxed environment when I was just living life as usual. With that being said, it’s not always easy to just randomly make connections with other professionals while running errands – you have to work at it. That’s where the Addison Networkers come in. This group hosts professional mixers on the second Tuesday of each month at Astoria Caffe and Wine Bar in Addison, so you can network while enjoying a cup of joe (or something a little harder!)
The goal of the Addison Networkers Professional Mixer is “to gather professionals and entrepreneurs to grow their businesses in a fun and relaxed environment,” according to their Facebook page.
Stop by at the next professional mixer, taking place on January 8th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Astoria Caffe. Enjoy a delicious Happy Hour drink, a chance to win door prizes and an opportunity to meet others of similar interests!
Astoria Caffe and Wine Bar, located at 15701 Quorum Drive in Addison, is a European-style café that offers a warm and friendly place to start your day, a quick and delicious spot to eat lunch, and a casual and cozy location for drinks. Their extensive menu features appetizers, Panini sandwiches, fresh salads, homemade soups, energy-packed breakfast choices and, of course, hand-crafted desserts and authentic Italian coffee blends. In the evening, they also offer more than 200 different selections of wine – everything from well-known, loved wines to rare, world-class boutique selections. Not in the mood for wine? You can also get domestic-brewed and imported beer, or anything from the full bar.
“At Astoria, we are very passionate about coffee, food and wine, and have a major weak spot for dessert. We love happy customers and, therefore, work hard to provide them with the best possible experience. Focusing on quality and freshness has always been of highest priority to us and we always strive to use organic product when possible,” stated their website.
Tickets to this free event are available online now, so don’t wait to sign up! Make your Tuesday evening a time to wind down with a good drink and even better company.
