1st Thursday at the South Congress Hotel

Last night, the first Thursday of the month, was the South Congress Hotel’s “1st Thursday” party, a monthly happy hour put on by the hotel. It also happened to be the 2nd Anniversary at South Congress Hotel, and my first time attending. What a night!

The event is held every first Thursday from 6-9p in the back ballroom and outside patio of the hotel. The night features great drink specials, a DJ, and lots of dancing. Oh yeah, and it’s free. Since last night was also the 2nd anniversary, several others joined in the festivities and helped to celebrate:

-dating app Bumble, which brought its own “Bumble BEEday” cocktail available for purchase and props for the Boomerang GIF photo booth (side note: I’m pretty sure I saw *the* Queen Bee herself, buzzing about the event)

-live performances by Tomar and the FCs

-dance music by DJ ulovei

-more music by DJ Ben Zink

-South Congress Hotel, which provided the venue and also gave out gift cards and other prizes for those who Instagram’d a photo and used the hashtag #SCHyear2 (other side note: I actually won!)

Since it was my first time going, I wasn’t really sure what to expect of it, but I was definitely impressed and would 10/10 recommend. So many people came to this event—a lot more than I was anticipating—and the best part was that the majority of them were all young 20 somethings. It was fun, casual, and an easy opportunity to mix and mingle with others and make friends.

No matter who you are, how old you are, or what you do for a living, you should attend at least one of these happy hour events at the South Congress Hotel. Even if you have no intention of meeting anyone new, it is a fun night to enjoy with your friends; it’s a beautiful venue with such an inviting atmosphere and delicious drinks. Plus, you never know who or what you may come across!
