Happy About Happy Hour

What could be better than a few like-minded friends enjoying good food, drinks and great political conversations after a week of living like Eskimos?  Try about 50 new friends doing the same!  Our first Happy Hour at Ships Cafe was a resounding success last night (thanks to all who came out).  So, we think we’ll make it a habit.

Out of the 50 people who came to Ships last night, many were relatively new faces around the PVRC.  And many of the new faces were young, full of life, energy, new ideas and ready to get involved. I’d say, with the momentum we’ve got going for us now, the sky’s the limit!  I see big things in our future (and some big political changes around here too!).

Five candidates enjoyed the atmosphere last night, our own Steve, Al and Augie, and two candidates from Howard County (Ellicott City & Elkridge)… which was great since we had some Ellicott Citians (just go with it) in attendance.  The candidates each took a turn addressing the crowd, and the response was great!  Chris Cavey was there to show his support as well as a few friends from the Howard County GOP Clubs.  Isn’t it great to be noticed and supported?

And through our 50/50 raffle we were even able to raise some funds for the PVRC while giving Marylanders a little chance to gamble in their own state!  And it was a bonus to be able to host the event in a private room with its own bar.

We couldn’t be happier about the turn out and are already brainstorming ways to make subsequent happy hours even happier.  So, if you missed it, don’t worry… just come on out next month!

Details are in the process of being firmed up for March’s Happy Hour, but plan on making room in your calendar for the 16th or 17th (which is St. Patrick’s Day)… same time, same great place.
