I have just attended my very first Thirsty Thursdays event at The Green Room on Brunswick Ave. Organized by Chris Clarke and a few others (so he says), it was quite a nice little event. Very casual and informal, all the attendees were gathered around a very long table on the second floor of pub. When I arrived, everything was already in full swing--drinks, laughs and good conversation all around. The venue was very homey and seemed like a good place to just chill out. I saw a lot of familiar faces (props to my fellow Humbers--1c what what!), including that of Chris Clarke (lol) from StudentPR, Parker Mason and Jess Bennett, both bloggers on BlogCampaigning, Henna Singh from CanadianBeauty, and Sameer Vasta from Eloquation (although I'm sure I was told he blogged, or used to blog at BlogTO).
I really ended up enjoying myself last night, thinking back to a conversation I had with a friend a previous night regarding Third Tuesdays. Events like these are great because they allow for open conversation and meeting new people because that is the purpose of the event. It makes you less reserved to going up to new people and introducing yourself, because they will expect you to!
I look forward to the next meetup! :)
