There’s a networking group in town called “Women and Wine on Wednesdays” with which I have a love/hate relationship. The founders work hard to host successful monthly events, but even though the “wine” part is enticing I haven’t attended an event in eons. One of the reasons I stopped going was because the gatherings turned into some strange mashup of a bachelorette party, a Girl Scout jamboree, and a Silpada jewelry party. At the last WWW I attended the middle-aged gals were just plain giddy in their eagerness to get to the bar and chat-up the male bartenders. It was weird.
So love/hate. Try to attend with an overabundance of testosterone and you’re turned away at the door…unless you can fill a wine glass?
