Happy Hour for the Holidays @ The Social House Addison

So, the holidays are coming up; and holiday parties are always a must. I wanted to give back to everyone who has attended, or helped me host events this year. The best way to do that is to offer a nice place to get a drink, have a bite to eat and have a great night of fun conversation.

Since this is so important to me, I could only trust The Social House with it. A lot of people use them, and there’s a good reason for that. They are always so good to Meetup, and go out of their way to make the night special for us. And since the last time I had almost 150 people show up, they’ve opened up a lot more space to use for this event!!

They’ve been kind enough to give us BOTH bars to use. So we will be in both the side bar, and the back bar. There should've been enough space for anyone who wanted to come out this night. But we are on a waitlist now. I’ve opened it up for everyone to be able to bring some guests. For those who don’t know, the side bar is to your right after you walk into the restaurant. The back bar is…well…in the back. They are connected by a lounge of couches so wecan move from one to the other. Very nice place.

The night will run from 6pm-10pm. If anyone cares to stay afterwards, they bring out a DJ @ 10:30 PM, clear out the tables and open it up for dancing. There will be a mix of different genres..so there should be something for everyone. No one has to stay, but people are always looking for an after party. Well…no need to leave if you don’t want to. They will be open until 2AM.

As always, there are specials….and as always they’ve extended the Happy Hour for us until 10PM.

So for all you late comers, you will be set. Here's the happy hour specials:
$3.00 wells
1/2 off select appetizers
1/2 off all pizzas
1/2 off specialty cocktails
1/2 off crown and downs
$3 off any entrees
$1 dollar off any draft beer
$2 off any wine by the glass

They have a huge selection of beers on tap, as well as wines and liquors. If it sounds like I like the place…I kinda do. Check out Yelp’s reviews if you’ve never been there.

Finally, I just wanted to thank everyone I’ve met through this group. This really has been a great place for me when I needed it after a horrible time in my life. I’d personally like to thank another Organizer (Chris Baken-yes I just called you out), who took that guy who was really nervous, and helped him fit in. If I’ve done any good as an organizer, it’s watching other people build friendships through the events I run. The talking, the interaction and the smiles…..that’s my reward.  And I’ve met so many great people who I count as friends…But I’ve decided I’m going to step down as an organizer after this event.  There are other things I want to do, and different groups I’d like to work with. This has been coming for awhile, and now seems like a good time to go ahead and bow out on a good note.

I want to thank you all again for your support and attendance at my events. Please come and have a good time, because that’s what the holidays are about. If there are any people I've just never had a chance to meet...please come out. It would be awesome to see you!

**Since we're definitely going to go to a waiting list, please just remember people change their status a lot. Especially the day of the event. So don't be surprised if you find a spot open for you to come!!! **


Have a great day and take care!!

    It was nice. I went kind of late so didn't get to socialize very much. And my plus 1 was a bit of a party pooper. Next time tho!

    Here. As soon as I get some food in me, I'll be social. In the meantime, sitting in the corner booth in the front bar if anyone wants to come say hi.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone tonight...assuming I can find the right group ;)

  • Bill

    I'll be wearing khaki slacks, a blue button down shirt, with green suspenders and a matching bow tie. I'll have my Santa hat on too, so I should not be hard to find at all. Please introduce yourself if we haven't met. And if you're nervous at all just find me or Naveen, and we'll make sure you're comfortable. That's kinda how we roll here. Can't wait to see everyone. If you need anything, just text me at[masked], or Naveen at[masked]-9344.
    It will be a really fun night!!

    Can't wait to hang out and meet some new faces!

    Hey everyone. Wow! Such a good crowd for tomorrow night. Please be considerate of others on the waitlist, if you or your guests can't come. @ Jason, I can't stop anyone on or off a waitlist from coming to a public bar. I know from past experience that people will begin changing their status. Especially on the day of the event. Some people will simply "no show" without doing anything. A lot of people on the waitlist will be able to get in. And I make a judgement call the day of the event to see how many are waiting, and if it's not too big I open it anyway. You want to be comfortable in the space you have, and have enough staff. That's the reason for the limit. Hope that helps!!

      Hi Zahid, Social house occasionally enforces dress code after 8 or 9pm usually no t-shirt, I would suggest a collared shirt or polo.
