Happy New Year everyone! I hope that 2012 has started of well for everyone. If you have recently joined Onyx, welcome! This group hosts a variety of events for black professionals throughout the bay area, but primarily in the Peninsula and the South Bay. We've been organizing social, business and professional events since 2007 (time really flies....). I say we because the Onyx is member-driven group (meaning that members are empowered to plan and host social, professional and community service oriented events). This year in particular, I'm definitely going to need more members to step up to host events and share event ideas. So if you have a great event idea in mind and would like it to be added as an event, please let me know. I can't tell you how many cool places and things I've learned courtesy of Onyx members over the years.
Happy Hour at Joya Tonight: Just a quick reminder about tonight's event at Joya. Wow! It looks like the turn-out for tonight's event is going to be amazing. If you're plans have changed, please update your rsvp so I will have an accurate headcount for the event. I must stay that we may be bit squeezed if everyone shows. That said, I've had nothing but good experiences at Joya and I gave them a head's up so hopefully we'll all fit in just find. Parking around Palo Alto is usually pretty easy and almost always free but there is a large lot on with an entrance on Ramona if you get desperate.
Also, I'm getting there early so that I can stake claim to some space. It would be really really great if some folks can arrive a bit early to join me there.
Given the number of attendees (seriously I think we'll temporarily increase the black population in Palo Alto exponentially) we should be easy to spot. But if you need any assistance, please send me a text at[masked]-4103.
February is going to be jammed packed with a number of great events.
That's all for now. Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing a number of you tonight.
