Earth Day Happy Hour

If you're anything like me, Earth Day and its requisite flood of terrible pitch emails makes you want a drink. So we're holding another happy hour for SEJ members and friends in DC next Tuesday, April 22. We'll be upstairs on the deck (which has a tarp and heaters, in case the weather fails us). Five-dollar happy hour specials til the end!

Local 16 (an eating/drinking establishment) - 1602 U Street NW

Please share with friends!
