There aren’t too many things black folks love more than a good Happy Hour. Happy Hour sits in that perfect little space just below a full blown party. Sometimes a middle of the week happy hour is exactly what you need to get you over the hump and help you finish out the week. It was with this in mind that we here at singleblackmale.org decided to host a lil’ get together for our faithful readers. Last Wednesday, at the Empire Room in the Empire State Building, Happy Hour happened and if we might say so ourselves – it was pretty epic.
Let me let you guys in on a lil’ secret – when we decided to host this Happy Hour, we had no idea how many folks would show up. Seriously. It was our first full blown event so we weren’t quite sure what to expect. In our minds we figured if we could get 75-100 people to come kick it with us, that would be pretty dope. Welp … 300 rsvp’s later, The Empire Room was packed and we were having a helluva time.
We really and truly appreciate everyone coming out to support and we hope you all had as much fun as we did. The best parts of the night for me were the opportunities I had to meet folks who’ve read and been affected by something I’ve written. It’s really, really rewarding to be able to sit down and chop it up about the varying topics we discuss here, the posts you really liked, the posts you didn’t like so much and the posts you’re wishing we’d write. Really awesome – You guys are great… we really appreciate you all!
