Charity Happy Hour at Gua Rapo!

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

UPDATE #2: Drink specials are $4 Coronas, $5 30s & 40s Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine until 8pm!

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 Alzheimer's Association (DC chapter)... http://www.alz.org/nca/... a non-profit organization providing help and hope to over 80,000 people diagnosed, their families, and care partners in the DC metro area impacted by Alzheimer's and related disorders... suggested $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to the Alzheimer's Assocation and 20% of donations will go to the 30s & 40s 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.

If you haven't been there before, Gua Rapo is a sleek lounge with international flair, hookah pipes, and "guarapo" (meaning sugarcane juice) cocktails, for which the place is named after!  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

Closest Metro is Courthouse (Orange Line), just 2 stops outside of DC, I suggest metro / cabbing it (esp. during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata for travel plans. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays.

    Hey JT, how late do you expect your gathering to continue on Friday night? I have an event early part of Friday evening and was going to join later on. Thanks JT!

    • J.T. [30s & 40s Group]

      Hi Howard,try and get there before 8pm if you can so you'll still have some time to socialize before it's over. I’d say it typically peaks around 7:30 - 8pm. See you there!
