Former DC Metro MINI president Laura Dunlop for sure knows her way around some craft beers. That’s why, whenever she sets up a happy hour it is in our best interest to attend! When I arrived at the Heavy Seas Alehouse in Reston, Laura and Michael were already there. They’d secured a prime table just inside the bar and overlooking the area where I’d lucked into a killer parking spot.
We ordered a few appetizers and some delicious brews and then spent some time catching up. Before too long Ali showed up. I guess that the table next to us was just waiting until a terribly talented professional photographer to arrive because as soon as she sat down they asked her to take their picture.
We talked a bit about the club picnic and then Craig Baron and Haemish arrived and the fun really began! Ali decided to go ahead and award Haemish the mileage coupon he’d earned (for correctly guessing that the post Ali had shared on Facebook was Melissa installing her sway bar).
Then we awarded Craig some mileage as well. I don’t remember what he earned it for, but it had to have been for doing something helpful.
Haemish began trying to earn more coupons as well in what was quickly escalating into a competition around who could be the most helpful or appreciative. Truly all of the judges were winning this contest!
Beau and Betsy arrived!
And then we spent a lot of time talking about Instagram and how to get all of the porn out of Ali’s feed!
By the end of the evening the storm was passing. Ali grabbed her umbrella and escorted me out. Just a couple of days left until our next Happy Hour adventure!
