What we're about

This is a group for anyone who has encountered the Seattle Freeze and persisted in the face of it -- whether you're new in town and wondering why it's so hard to connect, a long-term transplant who's all too familiar with the chill, or a native who wants to break out of the Seattle shell, we're here to give you a group to hang out with and some like-minded people who are also looking for friends, not just being "Seattle nice".

Here's a great Seattle Times article about the Freeze: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/pacificnw/2005/0213/cove ....

Come join the group, and do your part towards the Thaw!

My friend Julie is hosting this event twice a week during these times. Julie is a Mental Health Counselor who specializes in Laughter Yoga.

1st Fridays TGIF Happy Hour on the Eastside

TBA on the Eastside

For those who work or live on the Eastside, join us for a monthly Happy Hour at different venues and cities. Plan to visit different venues. ~Claudette

What's the Eastside? See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastside_(King_County,_Washington)

These Happy Hour events will now have deposits so we can offer you more: reserved space, more venues, include bites and at times drinks, as well as help pay for the organizer fees and expenses. Deposits will range from $10 to $20, depending on the venue. Guests are welcome!

DEPOSIT: Includes a reserved spot and shared small bites.
Send in a $TBA per person deposit online via (3 options):
1️⃣ Cash App - cash.app/$MsClaudetteH (9544)
2️⃣ Venmo - venmo@MsClaudetteH (9544)
3️⃣ PayPal - https://bit.ly/EastsideHappyHour2. (fee applies)

Refunds will ONLY be issued if this event is rescheduled or cancelled.
WE WILL NOT BE OFFERING REFUNDS ON THIS EVENT. IF YOU CAN NO LONGER ATTEND AND CANCEL ANY TIME AFTER YOU RSVP, YOU WILL NEED TO SELL YOUR SPOT TO SOMEONE ELSE.

THERE IS A LIMIT OF TBA FOR THIS EVENT! Note in the comments when you plan to attend. I'll have reservations for us (and just for the number of people who sent in a deposit - if you crash the party, we may not have a seat for you). Happy Hour tends to run between 3-6pm. We can still hang out, make an evening of it or head to another venue!

MENU: TBA

PARKING: TBA

Btw, this is a joint event with Eastside Social Club so more people will be attending than what you see RSVPd here.
