• Hey again guys! I was just about to post and create an activity for a happy hour on Friday, but I wanted to check and gauge interest first.
    This has been a tough week for all of us. Personally, I had an 80-ton tree develop a certain affinity for me and decide to pull a kool-aid man by crashing through my bedroom wall. Long story short, there's now a massive hole in my bedroom from ceiling to floor. Not fun >.< I would have posted this earlier in the week, but lack of power made that tough.
    I think this means we all need a drink more than ever. However, if this week is just too tough for you guys with recovery/last minute plans, let me know and we can reschedule for next week! I think last week was too successful and too much fun to let the new tradition end there. Let's at least get a few of us to come out and celebrate the weekend!
    I'm still very happy with tap house in U City. Other suggestions?

    Hey Ansley,
    While CTH was a lot of fun, I was pretty disappointed with the service (and a little bit of the setup too). They had 1 waitress running tables outside. We came for 20 minutes and no one approached and asked us if we needed anything. Most of the people ended up ordering at the bar. I asked for 20-30 people setup and got 2 benches and no place to put food. Happy Hour was $4 on select beers, not much else. I know we made it work because the group was great, but still...

    Anyway, all things considered and now with the weather not too conducive to outside seating, I wouldn't do it at CTH again for a while. If you are going to do another HH in the University City area, I'd try Landmark Americana. I like the settings there and it looks like HH is decent (http://www.landmarkamericana.com/ph-specials.htm). You just need to make sure to call ahead and see if they can accommodate a large group.

    If you are going to do it this Friday, consider Andy's suggestion on First Friday. There are plenty of bars in Old City, but it will be packed. Remember, free parking in Old City during FF: http://philapark.org/2012/03/free-meter-parking-on-wednedays/. I highly recommend Triumph Brewery because HH is GREAT there and the place is huge (should be able to accommodate large groups easily).

    Just a heads up, Kasia and I will be doing a "If the baby still isn't here" HH next Wednesday, most likely back to Dark Horse Pub or The Irish Times. :)

    The advantage of First Friday, aside from the energy and art, is that many of the venues offer free drinks.

    Depending on the time of the happy hour we could double-down.

    Triumph seems like a good idea. I've never been but I've heard good things.

    Hey guys, great!
    Let's do City Tap House. Just a reminder, I've got rehearsal until 9, so I won't be able to make it out by then. If you've all moved on from Tap House, private message me to get my number so I know where to meet you.
    I totally agree, First Friday sounds like a fun idea. However, I know some of you just want to have a chill end of week experience. How about let's just meet at City Tap at 5:30 (me later), and then see from there!
    Can't wait to see you all tomorrow! I'll call to make reservations for 5:30.
    Cheers!

    I know Ansley is too polite for this, but her name is in fact ANSley, not Ashley. :)

    Right, my schedule got changed, so I can be there at 6 to welcome people! I'll have to leave at 6:45 (and then come back later around 9).
    I made a reservation under my name (Ansley Sawyer) for 15-20 people for one firepit, from 6-8. We'll be a little cozy, but hey, that's couchsurfing!
    See you fine people at 6, and later for those who're coming then!
