With Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and so many other popular networks, it has become WAY too easy to spend more time socializing online than in person, hasn’t it? I know. As a serial online networker, sadly, I speak from experience. But a group of Barrington businesswomen has come up with a fun way to get us all out from behind our laptops. They’re hosting a big party tomorrow night and rolling out the welcome mat for women right here in Barrington.
The group behind the party is called Barrington Women’s Biz Net, they’re part of the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce and they’re all about giving women who own and work for businesses in Barrington a chance to meet, mingle and make new friends. The theme of their networking event tomorrow night is Come Sail Away, it’s FREE and it’ll definitely feel more like a party with opportunities to make great connections in person.
G Whiz at the Foundry of Barrington is hosting tomorrow night’s party. They’re known for “Gifts that Get Noticed” and tomorrow night, the shop will be set up to entertain. Dozens of local business owners will have their products and services on display, there will be live music from Lola Bard Productions along with drinks and hors d’oeuvres offered by Port Barrington catering company, Cucina Pazza. The party starts at 4:30 and lasts until 7 p.m and the details are being coordinated by Barrington social party planner, Christina Currie.
You’ll find G Whiz at 724 W. Northwest Highway at the Foundry. If you can’t make tomorrow’s party, you’re welcome to attend any of the Women’s Biz Net group’s monthly luncheons.
They get together from 11:30 to 1:30 on the last Thursday of each month. And next month they’re hosting their most popular event of the year, which is a networking “scramble” including five separate area Chambers of Commerce at The Onion Pub in Lake Barrington on September 29th. If you’re a businesswomen, this group is a great way to connect with great people, OFFLINE and right here in Barrington.
