For the Reporter

3 No Networking – a weekly social opportunity organized by the Urban Center for Innovative Partnerships (IPZ No. 15 Auburn) to cultivate interaction and networking opportunities for Auburn businesses and organizations – will be offered on Thursdays in Auburn.

"It's a wide-open forum that has no agenda, no set purpose and no cost to the attendees," said Doug Lein, IPZ administrator. "That's why we gave it the whimsical name of 3 No Networking."

3 No Networking will be held each Thursday from 5-7 p.m. rotating among four Auburn establishments – Oddfellas Pub & Eatery on the first Thursday, Auburn Wine and Caviar Company on the second Thursday, The Station Bistro on the third Thursday and Zola's Café on the fourth Thursday.

"Although it is an informal weekly gathering, it's a powerful platform that can help form non-traditional business partnerships," said Mayor Pete Lewis. "You'd be amazed how much business you can do in an informal setting. We hope it will grow organically to be a valuable networking opportunity for all Auburn business sectors."

June 6 - Oddfellas Pub & Eatery, 102 W. Main St.
