happy hour: There will be booze!

I realize I have more than just DC readers, and the DC readers may not necessarily all be of the homosexual proclivity, but a few friends are getting together for Happy Hour tonight, so I figured I’d spread the word. We’re hitting Cobalt around 6pm for drinks, laughs and what not. It’s smack in the middle of their happy hour, so they’ll have some specials. Friday is also their Bear Happy Hour night, and fair warning, bears in a bar move out of your way even less than tourists on the metro, so it helps to be friendly and flexible.

Looking outside, I still see sunny blue skies and white fluffy clouds, so unless the Tropical Storm Warnings they keep e-mailing here at the office really step it up, I’m sure we’ll still be on for tonight.

If you’ll be around, drop a note or check-in. It beats sitting at home going over your emergency preparedness checklist! :mrgreen:

    @Fredo: Don’t be silly, you were never on that beach vacation with me! πŸ˜›

  3. Aw, I would totally go, but uh I am not of that proclivity, haha. I will be happy-houring at Finn’s at Eastern Market. $3 beer. $3 cocktails. $5 food. <3

    There needs to be like… a DC blogger happy hour. I know there’s that one through Meetup or whatever, but I meant like an informal one.

    @Liz: It’s amazing, when typed like that I read “happy whoring” — which I’m not saying might have described one or more of my past happy hours… really.

    I’d love a DC blogger happy hour, even as shy as I am, booze helps. Also… what’s food got anything to do with a happy hour? πŸ˜‰

  5. Food is an excuse. You don’t really get the food, but you use it to entice people… “See we’re not going out to get loaded. We’re going out for some cocktails and food!” But then you get loaded anyway, and start singing “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen and “Walking After Midnight” by Patsy Cline… not that I have any experience in this! πŸ˜€

    Hrm, project for Liz! I will try to organize one.

    If Q weren’t working tonight I might’ve actually taken you up on that, but since he’s the boozehound…

    Hey, are you going to G’con in October?

  7. brian says:

    @Esprix: I have no plans to go, no. To be honest, I know absolutely nothing about it, so it must be an insulated market type thing “gotta go to cons to know da’ cons”. Plus, it’s not like any of the local queer geeks talk to me anymore as it is.

    I suppose I should look it up since it would at least be convenient… ok, looking it up, I have no idea who any of those people are save one, Don Sakers. And I already got him to sign my book. πŸ˜›

    @brian: Indeed convenient, and highly recommended. Since I brought Gaylaxicon to the west coast, more west coasters are starting to attend, plus lots of new folks from Atlanta, so there are new faces to meet and greet.

    I advertised *heavily* at regular cons and on the ‘net, but obviously in focussed forums. I really didn’t want to be a gay con FUBU, ya know?
