Networking at Noon at Ortega 120

Today we went to Ortega 120 in Redondo Beach for another Networking at Noon. I am sure it was pure coincidence that the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) scheduled two Networking at Noon events this month with the second one falling on National Tequila Day, and Ortega 120 boasting over 120 different kinds of tequila. I know I was not complaining. I have been to Ortega 120 a couple times, both being on Cinco de Mayo, so it was always really crowded. Going there for lunch gave me the opportunity to look around and check out the decor; it is pretty cool. The food is good too. Naturally, if you enjoy tequila, you have to go there at least once. Come for the tequila, stay for the food. They make tortillas right there on site. They are so good.

One of the owners, Demi Stevens, gave us a little history of Ortega 120 and after hearing it, you have to admire her business savvy. As usual, everyone got an opportunity to give their 30 second sales pitch, which I again devoted to BUSINSSnBEER. We also gave away two certificates for a free beer at one of the upcoming events. I was happy to see the interest BUSINSSnBEER seems to be getting. Will see how many show up Thursday at Monkish Brewing. Continue reading

TACC May Networking at Noon at Aimee’s Bistro

Today, Tanya and I joined the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) at Aimee’s Bistro in Redondo Beach for the May meeting of their Networking at Noon. The TACC Networking at Noon is a monthly gathering of Chamber members; usually held at a local restaurant. So far we have been pretty lucky with the host restaurant, but today we really scored by having it at Aimee’s Bistro. The food was delicious. I see a return in my future; maybe do a review on it.

The networking event is one of the perks of being a member of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce. It gives you the opportunity to meet with other business owners, promote your business or the one you work for with 30 second introductions. They also have one member that gets the “spotlight” at each meeting, and they get 10 minutes to talk about what they offer. There are also door prizes and business card swaps. Speaking from personal experience, we have done business with a few companies we met and have generated some interest in our services. It is through our participation with the TACC that I picked up the Palos Verdes Street Fair opportunity, so I have become a huge fan. Continue reading
