In short, the event was a huge success. The drink specials, free appetizers, swag bags and cake were all a big hit. We had a great turnout -- old and new friends alike -- and filled the entire upstairs of Mie N Yu with laughter and good people. Thank you to every one of you who came out to support us! We were sincerely touched by the turnout and enjoyed spending the evening with all of you.
We also raised $150 in donations for D.C. Central Kitchen -- thank you all for your generosity.
Pictures are up on Facebook -- you can find them by clicking here -- and please take a moment to "like" us while you're there!
Now, for a few shout-outs, because we're Gamma Girls and that's what we do:
A huge thank you to Mie N Yu for hosting us! It was a perfect venue and we couldn't imagine any nicer people to have with us that night.
Thank you to Nathalie Gabriel for inspiring the cake!
A big shout-out to Matt for photographing the event! You can see his handiwork by flipping through the photos on Facebook, and contact him here on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/djsheeno
And while we're at it, there's another talented friend we want to introduce you to. So many of you asked who designed our webpage. Everything you see here was designed by Rachel McFadden, an honorary Gamma Girl for sure. While her talents have recently taken her back home to Maine, you can still reach her in the following ways (and we promise it will be one of the best choices you could make!):
For all of you who had a blast with us on Tuesday -- and for each of you who couldn't make it -- we hope to be hosting more regular happy hours in the months to come! We can't always promise cake, but we can definitely promise many more hours of fun in the future.
