@MPISTL – May 2016 – MPI After 5 Networking Event Recap

MPI After 5 Networking Event Recap


MPI St. Louis had a wild night at the St. Louis Zoo during MPI After 5! Networking Happy Hour on May 10th.  As guests arrived, they were treated to a signature drink – the Poisonous Frog, which was delightfully green and held a nice kick.  Guests entered the Charles H. Hoessle Herpetarium and put in their business cards for a surprise prize to be revealed later in the evening.  The zoo offered a variety of hors d’oeuvres – including a taco station! – and several drink options.  A favorite of attendees was the vodka bar.

During the first hour, guests mingled, snacked and sipped.  Later in the evening, the zoo team invited guests downstairs for a tortoise demonstration, and the surprise prize was announced!  4 attendees were selected in to feed the giant Aldabra Tortoises and Galapagos Tortoises their dinner of carrots.  This was incredibly fun to watch and quite the memorable experience for all involved!

While the demonstration was going on, the zoo team brought platters of dessert and bags of cotton candy for guests to stay and enjoy or take home with them.  Amazingly they also put together parting favors that included a zoo travel mug for all attendees!

The MPI St. Louis Chapter wants to say a big THANK YOU to the St. Louis Zoo for putting together a wonderful networking happy hour.  The zoo team provided a unique venue and delicious food and drinks.  It was the perfect last happy hour the chapter’s fiscal year!
