It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – NTEN Holiday Happy Hour Time

We’re ending another great year of NTEN Happy Hours by ringing in the holidays a little early! Tonight (Thursday, November 29) at 6 pm at Madhatter DC, we’ll be celebrating with food, fun, and folly. They’ll be FREE prizes to give away as well as complimentary appetizers and drinks specials. So if you’re not too busy trying to fit in your holiday shopping, you should stop by! We’ll be located in the Upside Down room, which is located past the bar on the first floor.

Hope to see you there!

 

Whatcha doing for Giving Tuesday?

I can’t wait any longer. I have to ask.

What did you get us for #GivingTuesday?

Nothing? Not one little thing?

Ah, not yet, you say. What with all the Black Fridaying and Cyber Mondaying, you’ve been swamped, eh? Totally understand! Haven’t we all! Read more »

 

Thanks for the NTEN memories, Sarah!

As the NTEN Happy Hour Coordinator here in DC, I rely on the support of my NTEN contact, Sarah Janczak, to help me market our monthly happy hours, reimburse funds spent on the event, and supply me with awesome NTEN swag to pass out at said event.  Since taking over the NTEN Happy Hours in November of 2010, Sarah has been a constant source of support and encouragement in making my events a success. I’m so thankful that I had the chance to get to know Sarah and work with her on an (almost) weekly basis.

That being said, I’m so saddened (for me) but excited (for her) to see Sarah leave NTEN after four wonderful years. She’ll be going on to an awesome position PwC Advisory in Austin, Texas. You can read about her new adventure here. I’m sure it’ll be  an amazing experience for her, one that she can thank NTEN for helping her acquire.

Thanks again, Sarah, for all the fabulous NTEN memories. Best of luck in the future!
