Hornet’s Professional Mixer ‘Stung’ Returns for Ad Week in New York City

During Advertising Week, gay social networking app Hornet hosted a very special edition of New York’s monthly networking event, Stung. Guests learned about the top trends from Ad Week and mixed and mingled with executives from the advertising industry at Slate in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

Tim Greene, General Manger of Marketing at Hornet, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to utilize our monthly networking event to bring together advertising, marketing, media and other industry leaders in a social capacity. As a global media platform reaching 25 million users, we’re in a great position to help facilitate conversations about industry trends, in particular as they relate to the LGBTQ community.”

Photographer Jeff Eason was there to profile the good times that happened over libations and arcade games like ping pong, foosball, pool, Jenga and Mario Kart.

Guests at the event enjoyed the “HornetStinger,” a drink that has revived the traditional Italian Aperol Spritz. Hornet has been serving Aperol at many of their events, reminding the gay community why it’s such a timeless classic and should always be behind the bar.
