Before you go thinking I'm actually that popular, only one was a personal invitation. Two were institutional--that is, everyone on a certain list was invited, and I don't even know the organizers. Two of the other ones are also generic, but I do know the people organizing and some of the other probable guests. Also, there are four distinct neighborhoods for these events, making doubling or tripling very challenging.
Here are the happy hours in order of invitation:
- Bloggers (Downtown-ish)
- Friend's birthday (U St.)
- Flexcar promotion (Capitol Hill)
- Rowing (Downtown-ish)
- City Paper "nosh mob" (Adams Morgan)
My happy hour priority list:
- Friend's birthday
- Nosh mob
A note to the institutional happy hour holders--next time, could you spread it out a little more? Next week is looking very, very open.
Grateful for: happy hours.
Drop me a line.
