Networking at Noon: Lisa’s Bon Appetit

Today was the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce’s (TACC) July Networking at Noon; this time held at Lisa’s Bon Appetit located at 3511 Pacific Coast Hwy in Torrance, CA. Lisa’s Bon Appetit is a catering service that also has a cafe for dining in, as well as a banquet room (which we used) and a bakery. They have been in Torrance for 33 years, so obviously they are doing something right. I can tell you that their french dip was nice and I really liked the bread on Tanya’s sandwich. Everything is made there from scratch, so as you can imagine the desserts were pretty amazing.

I used my 30 second introduction to invite everyone to Business N Beer and we gave away two certificates for a free beer at any one of our Business N Beer meet ups. Hopefully a few will show up Thursday at our first event being held at Select Beer Store. We may have found a new source for printing, so networking is bringing new business. Continue reading

Business N Beer, a new kind of networking group

Through these interactions I have been invited to join several service clubs and business networking groups. While I wish I had the time and money to join every service club the fact is I do not, so I volunteer my services to help publicize their fundraisers. As far as networking groups are concerned, I can definitely see the value in them but they all seem to come with obligations I can not meet. This would include mandatory weekly meetings that might meet at 7:00 AM for breakfast or lunch at a Sizzler or something along those lines. My schedule just does not allow for that kind of commitment.

As you [may] know, in May Tanya and I participated in American Craft Beer Week and in the process became aware of several microbreweries, brewpubs and gastropubs in the South Bay area. I got the opportunity to meet many of the owners and well as several brewmasters as well. I could not help but notice that as Craft Beer Week progressed, we started seeing a lot of the same people at the various locations. In the subsequent weeks since then the number of people that we would meet steadily increased. That is when Tanya got a brilliant idea; we would start our own business networking group, but add a twist to it. We decided to name it Business N Beer. Continue reading
