For the millennial generation, networking isn't just a tool for progressing careers; it's the pillar our personal lives depends on. Just tell someone you're not on Twitter, you've deactivated your Facebook account or you've yet to succumb to Instagram, and await the collective gasp of disbelief. Social networking has become ingrained in our lives, so much so that we often forget about, you know, actually socializing with the real, live people behind the avatars. For those who wish to venture away from their screens for some authentic interaction with a brew or two, Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; 314-241-2337) presents St. Louis Green Drinks, a monthly networking get-together for folks who wish to keep their carbon footprints small, few and far between. Discuss how to "green" your life, home and workplace while connecting with people who share your concerns. Throw back a brew and nosh on some of Bottleworks' locally procured (and therefore quite green) eats from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.stlgreendrinks.org.
