Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 856: Is it appropriate to talk business at a 4th of July party?
It's not inappropriate, but I'd encourage you to build relationships on a personal level and if the person with whom you're speaking brings up business, then you can respond.
There are ways to share stories to let people know what you do and what you're looking for as far as work, without coming straight out and talking business.
Remember, if you build a strong relationship on a personal level at a party, it will open up the opportunity for a second conversation and then a third and so on. Eventually work will come up. As opposed to going straight for the "I am looking for work" conversation which tends to bring up peoples' walls.
