Here's How To Win Tix To Our Fave Social Networking Event

create-and-cultivate-300
Let's cut to the chase — networking is hard. In a world where tweets have replaced business cards, getting facetime with folks can be more rare than a DM on Twitter. So, instead of relying on crossed fingers and good vibes, why not ditch lady luck in lieu of real, game-changing action: a.k.a. the cool girl's version of a caucus?
Creative + Cultivate, founded by No Subject (a marketing-slash-branding business that focuses on all things trendy), is a one-day collective of the city's most influential bloggers, craftsmen, and tastemakers — all under one roof to try and, you guessed it, cultivate creativity. This year's event will take place at The Standard Hotel, Downtown, and will feature workshops, presentations, and delicious dining opportunities (did we hear "Biergarten pretzels"?!).
In addition to the career-enhancing itinerary, the $275 fee will include a swanky swag bag, access to the photo booth, and a three-course dinner. Bonus: As an R29 reader, you're entered to win an all-day pass — just leave a comment below letting us know who you consider your biggest mentor. Give us the 411 to instantly thrown your hat in the ring. Check back on Wednesday for the official announcement, and good luck!
When: Saturday, May 18.
Where: The Standard Hotel, Downtown, 550 South Flower Street (at West 6th Street); 213-892-8080.
