Breakfast seems to be the theme of the week, with a Bio Breakfast in Delaware, a Coffee Connection at the Corinthian Yacht Club (on the river down past the airport), and the Philly Startup Leaders' first-ever "Breakfast Startup."

It's also getting to be picnic networking season. Keep your eyes open for groups holding picnics and socials, especially when they hold joint events to related groups. This can give you a great opportunity to meet a wide cross-section of people.

This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 7-5



These creative types really need to get their scheduling in sync! There are no less than three events targeted at the "creative community" on Wednesday -- the Creative Associations Showcase, Creative Connects, and the pre-DIY Days Creative Meetup -- though I suppose they are spread out enough that you could cruise from one to the other. 5 to 7, 5:30 to 8, and 7 to 11.

Some other interesting things happening this post-holiday mid-Summer week: BBQs, blobs, hacks, career transitions, and leadership chasms.
