This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 2-1

It's Ground Hog Day! (The day is halfway between the first day of Winter and the first day of Spring, so by definition you are going to have 6 more weeks of Winter.)

There's a couple of new groups in this week's calendar -- some are new, and I suppose some of them are only new to me. Enjoy, even so. The Renewable Energy Business Network is holding its inaugural meeting -- it's sold out, but the second meeting is in March. The Jewish Business Network and Professional Convention Management Association and the Pharmaceutical Marketing Research Group are all new to me, though I suppose they've been around before. Jeff Pulver is in town with another of his Social Media Breakfasts, though for some reason he's not allowed to call them Social Media Breakfasts. The last one was a lot of fun and I recommend it highly.
