Middlesex Chamber Business After Auction & Taste Of Downtown Sock Hop

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

"Sock Hop: Hopping for the Holidays"


The next Middlesex County Chamber Of Commerce Business After Work is the Middlesex Chamber Business After Work Auction & Taste Of Downtown Sock Hop, March 27 at the Italian Society.  This is one of my favorite Middlesex County Chamber Of Commerce Business After Work events, because besides the great networking, they also have an Auction, and Taste of Downtown.

Last year I got to taste the food of some of the best Middletown Downtown Restaurants, some of which I had not been to before.  Since then I have frequented several of the Restaurants and the food was even better than what they served at the Taste of Downtown.  Along with the food there is also an open bar with complimentary beer, wine, and soda all evening.

I also enjoy the Auction every year.  This year there will be approximately 100 item which will be auctioned off.  Some of the items auction in past  were certificates to some of the Middletown Downtown Restaurants, and other area business.  One year there were even box seats to a New York Yankees game.

Besides the Taste of Downtown, and the Action those in attendance can purchase a key to the Treasure Chest.  If your key opens the Treasure Chest you win a special surprise inside.

As always the most important reason to attend is to form new business relationship, so bring plenty of business cards are a must.  My calendar is marked for the Middlesex Chamber Business After Auction & Taste Of Downtown, March 27 at the Italian Society.  This is one I don't want to miss.

George I find when you go to these "taste of the town" especially if you bring your other half with you translates to :  we need to go to this restaurant and that restaurant ultimately your dinning out budget increases, let me know how you did,Endre

Hi George Souto - This sounds like an event not to miss!  I love to sample the food at a taste. The biggest one I have ever been to is the Taste of Chicago held around the beginning of July every year.

George Souto - Your title grabbed my attention. I remember when I reached the age when I was officially of age to go to sock-hops. I felt soooooo grown up! To think white socks could do that to a young woman? I don't think it would go over very big today!
