What we're about

Do you like happy hour (who doesn’t)?
Do you like to eat?
Do you like to try the fun new places in town?
Do you like to meet new people?
Do you like to support the local community?

Join us! The goal of this group is to get together a fun, informal group of people that loves eating and drinking to check out some of the great places in Ventura, from new hotspots to longtime favorites. Anyone is welcome and there’s no agenda, just to have a good time and meet some people you might not have otherwise crossed paths with. We get together at 5:30 pm the 4th Thursday of each month at a new place each month - location suggestions are welcome!

Gotta Try Ventura Happy Hour - September

The Winery by Squashed Grapes

This month, we will be trying a brand new winery, which also happens to be owned by one of our very own members, Steve Holt! It will be open in time for our meetup, and there will be happy hour deals, snacks, and maybe even music. Hope you can make it to the Winery by Squashed Grapes!
