What does it mean to "workshop stories"?
Here, I believe the speaker uses "workshop" as a verb to mean something like "gain," "make up" or "create." She is stating that if the date does not go well, at the very least, you will have some great new stories to share for your next networking event - so that there is at least something to be gained from it. This is an unconventional use of the word "workshop," and most people would say "at least you have a few new stories for your next networking event." Ex: If your date doesn't go well, at least you gain a few new stories for your next networking event. Ex: I have a mandatory workshop to attend for work.
