Charity Happy Hour at Look Lounge!

*** 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 #1Looks 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 Dwelling Place... www.dwellingplaceinc.org... a non-profit organization that provides transitional housing opportunities and support services for families experiencing homelessness to help them achieve and maintain self-sufficiency... suggested $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to The Dwelling Place and 20% of donations will go to the 20s & 30s Going Out Group to cover Meetup fees and expenses.

The holidays are coming up. No doubt, I love my family, but by the end of the long holiday season, I feel the need to get out. So I've planned the December happy hour right in the middle of Thanksgiving and the Christmas / Hanukkah / Kwanza / etc. holidays!

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.

If you haven't been there before, Look Lounge is sleek and contemporary by design, and sports distinguished Swedish metal and wood architecture with a unique LED laced bar! 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 Farragut West (Orange / Blue lines), I suggest Metro / cabbing it (especially during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata.com 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.

    I got to meet some great people last night. Best yet, this was for a great cause. Val from the Dwelling Place is awesome and mentioned that there maybe more opportunities to further help with the charity. Awesome job, J.T. :)
