With well over 100 in attendance, we tend to take over the entire bar for one of the best socials of the year. All too often we converse at affairs with not much more than a sound-bite. So by design our socials are offered as a chance to connect on a deeper level over drinks, good food, & honest conversation. So if you don't have plans, or might want to get out of the plans you have, then we hope you'll join us for an awesome night out.
