last night

Last night was fun! Thanks to everyone who made it out. For those who couldn't make it, be sure to follow the updates on Twitter to see when the August event will take place.

A quick recap of last night:

It became clear early on that people were going to chat regardless of the "profession badges" so we ditched 'em and proceeded with a flawlessly fun night of meeting new, interesting folks while enjoying the rockin' tunes of 15 Romolo's jukebox and the handcrafted cocktails and bar bites they're known for. It was noisy, crowded and a gem of an evening.

See you next month!

what to expect

Who likes name badges? Not me. That's why you won't see any names on badges at The Back Scratchers Society. In fact, there won't be any "ice breakers" or "mixers" this Thursday. The idea is to show up (with friends!), enjoy handcrafted cocktails and seasonal bar bites while chatting with people whose professions or creative ideas are compelling to you.

How will you know who to talk to?

That's where the badges come in. I'll be handing them out when folks arrive. Instead of writing your name, you'll write the industry you work in, the industry you want to work in, a creative idea you have, business idea, or product idea (instant paella?). It's up to you. The idea is for the badge to serve as a springboard for conversation. Names can always be shared later.

See you there!

Thanks for your patience in waiting for the location of our first gathering. It's going to take place July 30th at one of my favorite spots in town--15 Romolo in North Beach. (Click here for a write-up on 15 Romolo in the San Francisco Chronicle.)

I'm heading over there today to talk about drink and food specials, so stay tuned!

I'm workin' on it

I'm currently scouting a venue for our first gathering. Great food and cocktails are in order, so I'll be certain to secure a resto/lounge serving both. What can you do while I pinpoint a location? Tell your friends to start following @theBSsociety on Twitter!

You'll hear from me soon with a time and place.
