Happy Hour @ Woo Lae Oak in Tysons Corner - ALL members

OK.... Many of you have been flapping off at the gums lately. Talking a whole lot of mess like, "Scott, when are you going to get off of your gorgeous ass and organize a Happy Hour?" The answer is whenever I damn well feel like it. It just so happens that I feel like it now. I love this group, and since we are undergoing all of our changes, I felt that my happy hour should incorporate the full range of my skills, (negotiation, coercion, blackmail, begging, etc) in order to host an event that will not only have bar specials dedicated for our group exclusively, but will rock the house as well. I have talked things over with Thomas, the Bar Manager at WOO LAE OAK Korean Restaurant in Tyson's Corner, and we have put together a great night. I also have to give props to my man Suchin, when we met Thomas, we definitely ran tandem on the shmoozing. "Why would you have it at a Korean Restaurant?" is the question some of you might be asking. The answer is simple. First, because I am Korean, and you gotta represent. Second, because for those of you that don't know, Korean food is the greatest cuisine in the world (POW! You hear me? The World!--Name that reference if you can) Enough of my jabbering, let me tell you what we put together...... First off, as you walk in, there is a long, sectional couch thing with a couple of coffee tables. Yeah, that's our reserved space. Oh it's true. Now for the white meat.... $2 Domestic AND Import Drafts $3 Domestic AND Import Bottles $3 Rail Drinks $5 Rail Martinis and Cosmopolitans Hungry? Half price appetizers (They have some good ones on their menu) $3 select Sushi Rolls (I believe Cali rolls, Spicy Tuna, Eel, and one other) Our specials run from 5-10. Thomas is also contemplating getting a DJ for us so that as the night progresses, we have some music, and have some dancing. This isn't a dinner thing, but anyone is free to have dinner there as well. Korean BBQ is divine. The only thing is that I would recommend eating in the dining room just so you can cook the meat at your own table. Its fun. Don't worry about missing anything, our happy hours go the distance. All of you coming need to check in with me or any other organizer for your wristband when you arrive. It separates us from the "common-folk." This is my first event, so don't bruise my ego by not coming. The scars will never go away. Plus, I am probably going to buy a ton of food for everyone to share. My way of bribery. I will see you there. -Scott

Update: As a member of Singles in the Suburbs, your wristband is included in your monthly membership fees. Other groups will be paying a $3 cover charge to secure their wristband to be able to get the same deals. Right now, the single members of the 20s/30s girls group have been invited to attend as well.

    Great Event!!!! Thank you Scott. I know, I know, the AC was on the fritz, so that sucked. The staff was green so service suffered a bit, so THAT sucked. However, Thomas assured me that if we have it there again, they would be better prepared for us. All in all, I think it's a great place, and we could do it there again.

    Great event. A place that has room to move around in and mingle is a rarity...this place had it in spades. Great company, good food and cheap drinks.

    Great turn out. Good to see some familiar faces and meet some new people. Also it was a "unique" dining experience ;-)

    Scott did an amazing job! I KNOW we totally overwhelmed Woo Lae Oak, but I was happy to bring such a nice establishment some business! I had a GREAT time and the specials were excellent! Next time, we will have a DJ for sure!
