Charity Happy Hour at Look Lounge!

*** It's a great day for happy hour! See you tonight! ***

UPDATE #4: Weather.com is showing 0% chance of precipitation in DC starting at the the start of our event at 6pm all the way through to 10pm.  So for those of you asking, the event is still on!  Let's go have a few much deserved drinks after work at an indoor (and new) location towards the end of a long week, especially for a good cause.  See you there!

UPDATE #3: Drink specials are $4 Corona Lights, $5 20s & 30s Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine until 8pm!

UPDATE #2: Per my email, I need volunteers to help sign people in with name tags and to meet / greet folks! This is a great way to meet people, and help kick start a friendly vibe to the event. I need volunteers to fill 30 minute slots (which goes by very fast) on the hour.  If you can help, please send me an email letting me know which top three time slots you prefer (in order of preference)!

UPDATE #1: Looks like this will be a good one! So tell a friend, 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!

Okay, time to get together for our next happy hour!

Our happy hour will benefit Special Love... www.speciallove.org ... a nonprofit organization that lets kids with cancer be kids, through camps, financial assistance, and a community of support that lets them (and their families) know that they're not alone in their battle... suggested $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to Special Love and 20% of donations will go to the 20s & 30s Going Out Group to cover Meetup fees and expenses.

DJ Saam will be spinning loungy groovy beats for us. Our happy hours typically bring out 150 - 200 folks... and I wouldn't be surprised with a similar turnout this time around.

I'm not sure how I swung it, but we are privileged to be visiting the brand new Look Lounge, brought to you by the same owners of Cities.  If you haven't been there before, Look Lounge is sleek and contemporary by design, and sports distinguished Swedish metal and wood architecture with a unique LED laced bar! So come take a look (no pun intended)! 21+

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, for an icebreaker, we'll put your name in a jar as you walk in, and then give you someone else's name from the jar. Also, 20s & 30s Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group!

- J.T.

Metro and Parking

Closest Metro is Farragut North (Red line) and Farragut West (Orange & Blue lines), I suggest metro / cabbing it (esp. during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata for travel plans. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

    It is indoor and a big crowd of happy hour patrons will be the best thing to defy a bad weather day. Let us show at the event firmly and steadily .
