I've got a question for all of you: do you have any recommendations for non-alcoholic no or low calorie drinks that I can order at happy hour?
Here's the reason why I ask. Tomorrow night, I am going to a networking happy hour event hosted by the professional society of the field I am looking to join. Originally it was supposed to be a Central Park walking tour and happy hour networking event but the walking tour got cancelled in anticipation of rain.
I really need to go to this event and do the whole networking thing. However, I really don't feel like drinking (alcohol that is) but I don't want to appear anti-social either by not drinking anything at all. I suppose I could order club soda with lime (and no one will know I'm not drinking a vodka or gin tonic) but I HATE club soda. I suppose I could get just cranberry juice but I don't like drinking empty calories and cranberry juice seems to irritate my stomach.
Is there anything else I could drink to fake the whole "yeah, I'm totally digging this happy hour" thing while I meet new people and hopefully network my way into a job opportunity?
