Mighty Events: Old School Meetup, NYC

Will you be in New York on Saturday, August 7? Us too. Let’s grab a beer.

Lots of us will be at the The Volstead (125 East 54th St.) from 6 p.m. until we leave.

There will be no sponsors, there will be no schwag, no one will make you drink a sickly sweet purple martini with hunks of dry ice. In fact, you can drink whatever you want, because you’ll be paying for it. That’s why we arranged for happy hour specials. Come raise your glass with us.

Maggie Mason, Laura Mayes, Karen Walrond, Susan Wagner, Holly Burns, Zan McQuade, Chris Jordan, Helen Jane Hearn, Alice Bradley, and Jenny Lawson

    I’m mighty sorry, but I’ll be mighty far away, and thus, mighty disappointed that I won’t be attending.

    Have lots of good time and funs for you all (as my great grandma would say).
