First Business After-Hours Event to be Held on Fat Tuesday


The Monmouth Area Professionals and Chamber of Commerce are starting some new business after-hours events. These events will be held quarterly and will allow Monmouth professionals the opportunity to network, find new business and bounce ideas off of other professionals. Sean Cavanaugh with the Monmouth Area Professionals elaborated:

“You know, people in Monmouth, kind of everyone is somewhat familiar with everybody. That’s the nice thing about growing up in a community like this. But they don’t always have the opportunity to all be in the same place at the same time to offer an exchange of ideas,” Cavanaugh said.

The first of these events will be held on Feb. 13, which coincides with this year’s Fat Tuesday. Danny’s Tap & Grille will host the event from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Free appetizers and one free drink per person will be available during the event.

“It’s gonna be people that are going to come in, and like I said, exchange ideas. They might have talked about something at the Chamber luncheon just a week prior and now they can finalize some things and just unwind a little bit. We’re not going to be there all night. It’s as soon as you get off work, run in, have a quick drink, high-five everybody,” Cavanaugh explained.

The after-hours event will be open to the public, not just professionals. There will be drawings and giveaways for prizes, including items donated by Maude Specklebellys. For more information on the Fat Tuesday after-hours event, contact the Chamber at 734-3181.
