Charity Happy Hour at Redline!

  • August 8, 2013 · 6:00 PM

*** It's a great day for happy hour! See you tonight! ***

UPDATE #3: Drink specials are $4 Corona Lights, $5 20s & 30s Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine until 8pm!

UPDATE #2: Per my email, I need volunteers to help sign people in with name tags and to meet / greet folks! This is a great way to meet people, and help kick start a friendly vibe to the event. I need volunteers to fill 30 minute slots (which goes by very fast) on the hour.  If you can help, please send me an email letting me know which top three time slots you prefer (in order of preference)!

UPDATE #1: Looks like this will be a good one! So tell a friend, come on out, meet new people, and help support a good cause! And again, I encourage everyone to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE!

Okay, time to get together for our next happy hour!

Our happy hour will benefit the Washington Literacy Center... www.washingtonliteracycenter.org... an organization with the mission to serve adults who have the most limited reading skills, fewest job resources, and greatest employment needs in the District of Columbia... suggested $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to the Washington Literacy Center and 20% of donations will go to the 20s & 30s Going Out Group to cover Meetup fees and expenses.

DJ Saam will be spinning loungy groovy beats for us. Our happy hours typically bring out 150 - 200 folks... and I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around.

I've been wanting to get our group into here for awhile now, and we are privileged to be visiting Redline for the first time. If you haven't been there before, Redline is a luxury gastropub featuring an 11-foot projection screen and over 40 flat screen TVs! 21+

To help continue the friendly tone of this group... I'd like to again encourage each person to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE at this event. To help do this, for an icebreaker, we'll put your name in a jar as you walk in, and then give you someone else's name from the jar. Also, 20s & 30s Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group!

- J.T.

Metro and Parking

Closest Metro is Gallery Place / Chinatown (Red, Yellow, Green lines), I suggest Metro / cabbing it (especially during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata for travel plans. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

    C'ava-it was fine, not great, not bad. Good environment not very easy to meet people unless you are ready to do the conference shuffle. Shake a hand, move on, shake a hand, move on :) Not too different from going to bar by yourself.
