About Our Community Partner: Connecting Things is a monthly event series - where doers and creatives can hang out, eat and drink together, and talk shop. Connecting Things is not a hardball networking group. We don’t expect to change your life through one event. We just hope to stir up your routine and make you pause and think about how and why you do what you do. Likely you’ll leave with a new perspective, a new friend, or at least a new excuse for coming into work late.
