You probably need a drink, don't you? I started a (now large) Happy Hour group in Baltimore full of happy hour enthusiasts who have had a lot of good times after work with great people and conversation. I now work in Bethesda, so I am doing the same thing. In all my meetups, people feel comfortable, free, and light-hearted seeing new faces and old ones, so don't be shy- give it a shot and come on out for happy hours with this new group to unwind, chit chat, laugh, and drink. We will start up in April! Cheers!
