The January UWS Work From Home meeting/networking/social event will take place tomorrow, Wednesday 1/15.
These monthly “meetings” serve as a great opportunity for people in the neighborhood who are self-employed, telecommute, freelance, or otherwise work from home to get out and meet people in similar situations from around the UWS.
I’ve been a pretty regular attendee of the gatherings since they started back in 2011 and always get to meet some really interesting people working across a variety of fields. There’s networking and the exchange of professional ideas, but it also serves as a social event for people who don’t otherwise have a water-cooler to congregate around.
Details are available via Eventbrite. If you can RSVP, great. If not, feel free to just show up.
The action officially runs from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, although it often goes longer than that — I’ve occasionally been there as late as 8:00 or 9:00 pm.
The event takes place at The Dead Poet (450 Amsterdam, between 81st & 82nd). There’s no obligation to arrive by a certain hour or stay for any predefined length of time — it’s a pretty casual affair.
If you work from home and live in the neighborhood, stop by for a beer or soda (or bring your own coffee) and a break from the monotony of sitting at “the office” alone all day.
