You guys! I’ve been SO excited about this for WEEKS! Today, I’m officially starting the Southern Flair Happy Hour Club and you’re invited! It’s been in the works for a while… and just know this is only the beginning. I have SO much to say about The Happy Hour Club, so I figured it would be easier to discuss everything through a Q&A style post… so see below for ALL the information.
Oh, and go ahead and mark your calendar — Our first meet up will be next Wednesday, May 17 at Bin 77 from 5-7PM.
This is just another way to connect more with local ladies and help YOU make connections — and bring this little blog OFFLINE and into real life.
What is The Happy Hour Club?
Just some ladies meeting, making new friends and networking over happy hour drinks once a month.
How did The Happy Hour Club come about?
As mentioned above, this was a product of a combination of ideas that came from my Reader Survey. I wanted to take my blog offline and actually connect more with people. I know the local ladies that are reading my blog are probably girls that I’d really like to hang out with! We all love Louisiana and finding local things to do — so why not make our own fun, eh?
Plus, years after graduating college and working in a professional field, it can be hard to meet new friends. It can also be hard to remind yourself to take a break and enjoy yourself sometimes, so this way you will at least have a “fun” break scheduled in once a month to just enjoy good drinks and good conversation.
What’s the purpose of The Happy Hour Club?
The main purpose is for us ladies to make new friends, network a bit (ya never know!) and to support local businesses and maybe even discover new local favorites.
When and where will The Happy Hour Club meet?
We will meet once per month at various locations around Baton Rouge. Each location will be announced in the Happy Hour Club Facebook Group.
Who can be in The Happy Hour Club?
Anyone who is over 21 is welcome to join!
How can I join The Happy Hour Club?
There’s no need to “sign up” but you should join our Facebook group to make sure you don’t miss any announcements. All meet ups and ideas for meet ups will be discussed there.
But don’t worry — I won’t spam the group or post too often. I know that’s annoying! This Facebook group will be exclusive to only meet up posts.
How much does membership cost?
Girl, please! I’m all about cheap stuff to do around town, which is why I have to hit up happy hours for discounted drink prices. There are no membership or sign up fees. And everyone is welcome anytime. All you have to do is pick up your bar tab!
So what’s on the agenda for The Happy Hour Club?
Nothing! There’s no agenda. Just girls sippin’ some cocktails or wine and making new friends!
What if I can’t make all the meet ups?
That’s totally fine. Every month will be on a different day, at a different time, and at a different location. So hopefully you can find a meet up that works with your schedule.
Can I bring friends to the meet ups?
Yes, our meet ups are open to everyone! In fact it’s encouraged to bring friends. The more the merrier. But it’s totally cool if you’re ridin’ solo too. The whole point is to make friends and network, so don’t be afraid to come alone!
Where’s our FIRST meet up?
We’ll meet next Wednesday, May 17 at Bin 77 Bistro and Sidebar, which is located at Perkins Rowe. They’ll have $7 select wines and cocktails and $3 select beers. We’ll meet up any time from 5-7PM. Feel free to come and go or hang out a while!
Where did you get your shirt?
Ok, guys! That’s it! Any other questions that I missed? Feel free to shoot me an email at Leslie.firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to join our Facebook group here!
