May Get to Know Happy Hour

This is May's installment of our monthly get to know happy hour.  This month we will be meeting at Dockside Willie's in Wormleysburg (across the river from Harrisburg).  They have a large deck out in the back that is great for congregating on during the warmer weather with a great view of the river.  It does get a little crowded out there but it should be ok :)

This is an event for members, new or old, to get to know the group in an informal setting.  Most members chose to eat and drink at these events, but there is no requirement for that to attend.  Just come out, have fun, meet new people and get to know the group :)  Also, the starting time is exactly that - a starting time.  If you can't get there until 6, 7, or 8 that's fine - come whenever you can!  These events usually have more than a few sticking around past that time. 

We usually have a great mix of new and familiar faces, so its a great event to attend.  I will send out an email to those attending closer to the date with where we will be in the restaurant and my contact information

    i Wish I would have come. I don't remember what happened that made it so I didn't come. I'm sorry. I must not have updated my RSVP because meetups asked me how the meetup was. I hope I can go to the next one. I've never been to the place, but I am anxious to Tip Tuesday as well.

    WOW wish I would of came. Was afraid of being to crowed like we where that night at Aroogas. Hope to see everyone next time. I know Erica's gatherings are an awesome time.

    With the weather changing we can hold a picnic gathering. I think that would be really fun. Everyone takes a cover dish and whatever they would like to drink.

      Meeting new people is a pretty scary ordeal for most people. No worries with this group though. We tend not to bite too hard lol. Most of us anyway:-)

    I'm sorry, I mixed up my nights about this. I wanted to go to this and thought it was tomorrow. Sorry for my confusion.

  • Mark S.

    Is it possible to still join the festivities this evening?

    May 29, 2014

      Absolutely!

    I need to bail for the night. Sorry for the delay I was really looking forward to my first event. Next time. Have fun

  • Erica

    Okay everybody, just want to give a quick weather update for today. It looks like it will be cloudy and around 60 when our happy hour starts. Unfortunately the spring weather left just for today :-( I know we will still have a great time even without the Sun, but if the forecast for today changes your mind about attending, please update your RSVP so I can keep the restaurant informed. As I posted yesterday, my cell phone is[masked] in case you are running late or can't find the group. I will tell the hostess where are people coming and can find us. See you tonight!

      I am bringing a plus one who will be there until 7 only

      May 29, 2014

    • Jane A.

      I changed my mind :( I have a cold and the weather is really deterring me from pushing myself. Poo.

      May 29, 2014

  • Jodi

    I am also bailing, thought I'd get schoolwork finished but I didn't :( gotta study! Lol next time

    May 29, 2014

  • Terri Lynn H.

    Sorry to bail/change my RSVP 45 minutes out. I am primary managerial on-call for my workplace, and a situation is brewing that may require me to return to Gettysburg, and be able to hear/talk on the phone. With such a robust response and a smaller venue I know it would be challenging. Hopefully next time!

    May 29, 2014

  • KELLY B.

    I am bailing out do to the rain. I know how small the inside of the place is. We are going to be like sardines.LOL Hope everyone has a good time....

    May 29, 2014

  • Julie F.

    I'm working late tomorrow so I'm gonna have to bail on this one. Hope you guys have fun and that you all fit in the bar!

    May 28, 2014

  • Tim S.

    I change my RSVP. I might still show up but it would be after 7:30 which is pretty late. Maybe there will still be some stragglers. :)

    May 29, 2014

  • KELLY B.

    What is going to happen if it rains out later today? Would they have enough of room inside for all of us?

    May 29, 2014

    • Diane

      I was wondering that too?

      May 29, 2014

    • Erica

      Well, we will just have to be split up into different areas. They don't have enough room in any part of that restaurant, inside or outside, for this big of a group, so I was going to have to split us up anyway.

      May 29, 2014

  • Taylor P.

    I will be there rain or shine! This is my first meet up event! I am looking forward to it!

    Hey everyone! We will still be meeting at dockside willies but if everyone on the list attends we're going to have to split up all around the restaurant to be able to be accommodated. If you can no longer attend, please update your RSVP so I can keep the restaurant informed. We will meet at their downstairs outside bar and I will grab us other areas as we increase in size. My number is[masked] if you can't find us or the place. All of dockside willies parking is across the street from the restaurant, you will see signs. See you tomorrow!

    • Deb

      Hi Erica, I'm coming a good distance and may be late. Barring any bad weather, i'll be there. Could you please let the hostess know where the group will be located so I can find you? Thanks :)

      May 28, 2014

    • Joseph W.

      I'm planning on attending and this will be my first event.

  • Taylor P.

    I have a metting tomorrow night. Fingers crossed it doesn't end to late for me to make the drive out there!

    May 28, 2014

  • TraJean ".

    Sorry I have a client to do that evening and now unable to attend. If there is a cancelation I will check on here to see if there is room for 1.

    I really hope I can come. I invited a friend. I am not sure if he is going to accept.

    May 22, 2014

    Bummer - I have 2 work

    May 22, 2014

  • Erica

    hey everybody! I love the enthusiastic turnout for this event! that being said, I'm a touch concerned that this has gotten WAY too big for Dockside Willie's to handle, in addition to their typical Thursday night HH crowd. So it's possible that the location may change (it will still be nearby if I do have to move it). But it would really help me out if you could update your RSVP if your plans have changed to help me get a more accurate number. Thanks and i'm looking forward to seeing you all next week!
