Charity Happy Hour at Look Lounge!

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

UPDATE #3: Drink specials are $4 Corona Lights, $5 30s & 40s Superstar drinks, and $6 house wine until 8pm

UPDATE #2: Per my email, I need volunteers to help sin 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 One Common Unity... www.onecommonunity.org... a member supported non-profit organization whose mission is to create and nurture sustainable communities through innovative peace education, arts, and media.... suggested $10 donation. Please note 80% of donations go to One Common Unity and 20% of donations will go to the 30s & 40s 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.

We are privileged to be visiting the 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! 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, 30s & 40s Rockstars, please help make all the newcomers feel welcome to our group!

- J.T.

Metro and Parking

Closest Metro is Farragut West (Orange / Blue lines) and Farragut North (Red line), I suggest Metro / cabbing it (especially during rush hour). I also recommend using wmata.com 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.

Or if anybody who didn't volunteer, can take the challenge. Please do so.. I will invite you a couple of drinks... Thanks...

    Hi, I am new to the group. At these types of events, is there a dress code? I would have to come straight from work and my attire at work is casual, meaning I wear sneakers and jeans to work.

    November 8, 2013

    • J.T. [30s & 40s Going Out G.

      Hi Rich, there is no specific dress code so casual attire is ok. Clubs usually have no flip flops or sneakers. See you there!
