  • August MeetUp @El Rey

    El Rey

    Come for: Happy Hour. Good Conversation. Meeting new people. Help on something you're working on. Tacos. Last month was a blast. Multiple people came up to me afterward to say how they'd made a really important new connection with someone at the event. I can't wait to see what this month brings. We're trying out new digs, El Rey. They do chips & guac, tacos, margaritas and a full bar. If you can, find me at the event and let me know what you think of the place. (Also, they will be checking ID at the door, but no worries if you're not 21. Let me know ahead of time and I'll make sure they let you in when you get there.) See you Tuesday! -Ellenor
