    Christmas is almost here, and the new year is just around the corner. Are dreaming of a white Christmas? Whether or not you are, you should still go to the CS Happy Hour. :)

    ---
    NOTE: The CS Happy Hour on December 20 and 27 will ***NOT*** be at Central Bar. It will be at a bar called SAINTS TAVERN. I will post the address for it on Friday.

    Every Thursday at 8:30pm until the early morning the CouchSurfers of NYC, both locals and travelers, get together for a quick chat or for the entire evening, for a drink or just a handshake... whatever you decide to do, we're all friendly (I hope).

    Whether you are a traveler or a local, come to this weekly meeting of CouchSurfers to meet some of them. Make a traveler feel welcome. Get some tips on non-touristic sights from a local. Everybody is welcome! Bring your non-CS friends and introduce them to the meeting part of CouchSurfing.

    Get to know other perspectives about CouchSurfing from around the world, meet some locals and create your own way of enjoying the city from their advice, find travelmates, or just have a good time with all these friends that you haven't met yet.

    This event is a great place to
    - find people to hang out with and make plans for the weekend
    - find a last-minute couch
    - meet your hosts/guests before deciding to share accommodation with them
    - get references and friends for your profile
    - discuss safety, verification levels, or how to use all the information from the website

    PLEASE REMEMBER TO TIP

    In the US, the customary tip is $1 per drink at the bar, and 15-20% of the bill for food or table service. If we get a reputation being cheap with tips, we will not get good service, and if it is bad enough, the bar will not invite us back.

    The House Rules:

    1. Do not take your drinks outside the bar (you WILL get fined for public drinking).
    2. CouchSurfing is a place to make friends not to find a date.
    3. The minimum age to enter the bar is 21. BRING PICTURE IDENTIFICATION that shows that you are at least 21 years old or the doorman will not allow you in.
