This time around, I'm gonna conduct a grand experiment. Schedule an event on the coat tails of a national holiday. Yes, I realize I may be going to this one alone but hey... I'll risk it!
OK -- so the deal with this place is that it is Happy Hour all night in the bar. And the grub is great. And there's sometimes live music (maybe always -- only been once but was blown away). And the prices are great. And... There are tons of people who know this so expect a crowd. No real details on the web site but the bar menu is there, sans prices.
As per usual I am just planning on showing up with whoever (or is it "whomever"? too tired to Google) decides to join me. No arrangements. Just amazing chaos that apparently leads to great conversation, lots of laughs and likely lasting friendships. Funny thing that is.
