Happy Hour Events: We Take Our Fun Seriously!

Attending Happy Hour each Friday is not the only reason for living in today's world.

It should be, but no, there's other stuff!

Really! I'm not kidding.
On this webpage is listed stuff to entertain us between Happy Hours.
These events are open to anyone who would like to attend.
Mostly these are designed for adults, but we do have family-oriented stuff, too, where children are encouraged to attend. (We need more children to make us feel superior.)

To notify us of an event: send an email to Bo Zaza.
