Location image of event venue


*** See everyone tonight! ***

Some of you know I run the "regular" mainstream version of this group... and I figured it'd be a good idea, every once and again, to join that group's happy hour!

If you're a member of both groups... request that you RSVP here (no need to RSVP in both spots).



UPDATE #5: Drink specials include $4 beers, $5 rail drinks (e.g., basic vodka cranberry, gin & tonic, rum & coke), $5 house martinis, $5 Pink vodka.

UPDATE #4: Looks like this will be a goooood one... so spread the work, come on out, meet new people, and help support a good cause! And again, I encourage everyone to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE. Also, the Network of Educated Single Professionals will now be co-sponsoring!!

UPDATE #3: The 20s / Early 30s Girls in DC and After Work Friends of Fairfax will be joining as well!! So spread the word, come on out, meet new people, and help support a good cause!

UPDATE #2: The Eat, Drink and Meet-NoVA group will be co-hosting as well!!

UPDATE #1: The following groups will be joining us as well: DC / VA / MD Singles & Couples, Tysons Singles, Washington Spanish Language, and Capital Beltway Walking!


The holidays are coming up... and as much as I love my family, by the end of the looong holiday season, I just feel the need to get out, and have some fun. Who feels me?

Sooo I've planned the December happy hour smack dab in the middle of Thanksgiving and the Christmas / Hanukkah / Kwanza / etc. holidays!

Spread the word, mix and mingle with new and familiar faces, and let's have some fun!

Plus, we'll be benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic... http://www.midatlanti... ( ... we raised over $2000 for them last December, and I'd like to try to top that this year, if we can (80% of proceeds goes towards Make-A-Wish of the Mid-Atlantic).

So come with your holiday spirit, and help support a good cause (suggested $10 donation - optional or whatever you feel you can contribute) at our happy hour Thursday, December 13th, with the following groups so far!

. 20s & 30s Going Out
. 20s & 30s Asian Going Out
. German Language
. 80's in DC
. DC Euro
. DC / VA / MD Singles & Couples
. Tysons Singles
. Washington Spanish Language
. Capital Beltway Walking
. Eat, Drink and Meet-NoVA
. 20s / Early 30s Girls in DC
. After Work Friends in Fairfax
. Network of Educated Single Professionals

Our happy hours typically bring out 150 - 250 folks... and I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around.

For those that haven't been there before, Play is a colorful "playful" *cough* no pun intended *cough* lounge that includes cube-style ottomans and low banquettes. It's saturated with color from cool mint greens to in-your-face oranges and reds. See

To help continue the friendly tone of this group... I'd like to again encourage each person to have a GOAL OF MEETING 3 NEW PEOPLE at this event. To help do this...

... a lot of you seemed to like the icebreaker we've been using lately, so we'll be doing it again! We'll put your name in a jar as you walk in, and then give you someone else's name from the jar.



Nearest metro stops (RECOMMENDED) are Dupont and Farragut North (red line).
