This is about a different kind of connectivity… I really enjoy talking on the phone, emailing, texting, and communicating on social media with you every day about work and IT related issues, and I love it when we can help you or your business resolve a computer or server problem and get you back to work. But what I would like even more, is to connect with you on a more personal level! Some opportunities for us to interact might be:
September 29th, 6:00 PM – “Sippin’ In Simpsonville” – a beer tasting event, combined with Oktoberfest. It starts at 6pm, downtown Simpsonville near the clock tower. A number of local places are participating there, then at 7:30, my band, Hot As A Pepper, will play while people mingle and enjoy bratwurst and libations. Of course, we won’t have a lot of time to talk between sets, but hey, I would love you to come, if you are into that sort of silliness.
Our band also opens rehearsals up for a few people to come visit. If you would like to do that, let me know! Space is limited, so we ask everyone who wants to come to make arrangements at least a day in advance. It can get kind of intense. We play music for a couple hours and whine, uhmm no, we critique the songs, yeah, that sounds better.
Do you smoke cigars? (Even if you don’t, but that wouldn’t make sense) I hang out with some pretty cool people on Thursday afternoons at a place over near Haywood Mall (Outman Cigar and Martini Bar). It’s not just a bunch of men, there’s a contingent of women who grace us with their presence too. It’s all about connections, talking to friends about whatever the subject of the day is. The crowd consists of people of all walks of life from business professionals to entrepreneurs, hard workers and non-workers. Anywhere from half a dozen to two dozen people show up. Talk to me about it, let’s meet there.
Into technology, want to hang out with people who are either into it themselves or looking for others who are it? Tech After Five (TA5) is an event that takes place once a month in Greenville at Carolina Ale House, oddly enough, after five PM. I try to make them to meet up with over a hundred interesting people. It’s free for tech people. Free is good.
You could join my family at church on Sundays at Powdersville’s Marathon Church. We go to the 11AM service and almost always go out to lunch afterward.
Want to enjoy the sights, sounds and the smells of high school football? There’s lots of the season left and our son plays center for Easley High School. Come out and sit with us. We get catty and talk about people, and I snap pictures of everyone within focal distance.
Coffee? Lunch? Let’s do that too! Especially if you are buying, but even if you are not, that’s okay! I’m up for just about anything. Sushi? Mexican? Taco Truck? You name it!
Interest piqued? Email… Call me, maybe? Let’s get to know each other…
