Pittsburgh Girls Who Walk and Nerd Nite Pittsburgh are teaming up for our second Women’s Mixer! Proceeds from the event will go towards fundraising for Girls Who Code. Doors will open at 6:00 to come in, pregame, and get registered for Speed Friending and then the festivities will begin!
The best way to meet new people is through the people you already know. This is why house parties are the best place to do it. Nerd Nite’s Pittsburgh Mixers are designed to simulate all the benefits of a house party out at a bar with random strangers. It’s like going back to the good ol’ days when more people randomly met out in the world!
PHASE ONE – Speed Friending – 6:00-7:30: You can begin to register for this starting at 6:00 and the first round will begin at 6:30. Speed Friending will rotate you around with other guests for 5-minute conversations with new people. One of the best reasons house parties are so great for meeting people is that, almost always, everyone either knows the host or is a friend of someone who knows the host. So you are sure to be only a few mutual connections away from everyone there, and those who connect the dots are also in attendance! With Speed Friending, our goal is to create an atmosphere with that same vibe.
PHASE TWO – Starting at 7:30: The real mixer begins. We’ll keep the tunes at a medium volume so you can enjoy them and hear people easily. Additionally, we’ll have all the social games that you loved for the first parties. We’ll be partnering once again with CityOfPlay to have a wide selection of party games such as Telestrations, Codenames, and Monikers, and all are welcome to bring their own from home! We’ll also have dice and cards for whatever you want to do with them. And, of course, there will be great food, drinks, and lots of extra space just to talk and hang out. Essentially the perfect party if you want it to be easy to talk to strangers.
Grab your girlfriends or come out to make new ones! See you there!
