Hooking Up 

Networking party aims to make a connection or two.

Über party boy Marcus Sims teaches folks how to network at tonight's Drive Home Happy event. The bimonthly happy-hour series for young professionals is designed to hook up entrepreneurs with job-seekers. Sims' function is to introduce a person new to a field — say, someone with a budding interest in financing — to a seasoned pro, like a National City executive. "I bring the two together," he says.

By the end of the evening, Sims hopes he has paired up at least one new business connection. "I'm trying to change people's perceptions about networking," he says. "It's a lot more relationship-building to come, hang out, and make some new friends. Naturally, that lends itself to doing business together."
