The "January Actually CAN Be Fun" Mixer at Jolly Pumpkin

The thought of January getting you down? Suffering from some post-holiday blues? Quit crying about it and come out Thursday, Jan. 9th, at Jolly Pumpkin. Let's toast to the new year and prove that January doesn't have to totally suck.

As an added bonus, chat with me --Katina Nichols-- about joining a YP adventure trip in July 2014. I'll be leading a non-stop, action-packed excursion to Peru (rafting, biking, Machu Picchu, and all) and would love for an adventurous group of YPs to join me. If anyone is interested, I'll have plenty of trip itineraries to go around. (Note: You can have a look at the itinerary here, too: http://www.journeys.travel/destinations/americas/peru/1000/). Ask me about a trip discount. :-)

And per usual, don't forget to bring your own business cards to circulate!

Hope to meet you there.

    Did not expect this big turn out or else I would have pulled out my camera to post some good pictures of this fantastic group of people. Looks like we need to meet soon if we want our pics :)

    It was way too loud there and so hard to hear anyone. I wouldn't want to go to another meetup that is that loud. I dont like yelling and screaming to talk to people right next to me. It was good to see and meet people but I would much rather go to a more spread out place where people aren't squished together and itd quieter! Thanks

      Oops I didn't know my rating of it was going to be posted on the main page. Sorry to be negative. I had a long tiring day and wanted to go. I liked the one at Melange more-was more relaxed and quieter. Probably more spread out and the acoustics of it r better for conversation. Im again sorry to be negative! See u guys soon! :)

      Hi Bridget-Thanks for your feedback. On the plus side we have a huge crowd at our events. On the downside, it can make the events pretty loud. I'm working on our next meetup at a larger venue for February so the noise level should be more manageable.

    As always, people will be there until at least 8 or 9, so come even if you can't make it at 5.

      Hoping to actually make it for the first time in a while! May be tied up till around 7 though, so will probably be a latecomer.
