It’s Wednesday afternoon, you know what that means… time for the latest update on what’s going on in town from Stacy Servo of New2Lou. Servo herself has been making news lately with the announcement that she and partner Theresa Stroisch will be opening New2Seattle later this spring. Rumor has it that Servo will be attending the launch party for New2Seattle with a Louisville entourage in tow! We’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, here’s what Servo recommends:
Notice a theme here? Let’s be honest, bourbon and booze can add a little extra liquid courage for newbies and introverts to get out and be social. We’re not saying to go out and get crazy, by any means– because honestly what fun would that be? We’re all adults here. We’re simply saying grab a drink or two, meet a friend or two, try a new place or two and do it responsibly. There are plenty of awesome transportation options out there if you don’t have a DD, like City Scoot and Yellow Cab.
Now that we got that important PSA out, what else is on radar this week? Lots of fun events to grab a drink and meet some cool new folks! Looking for more fun events this week? Check out the local calendars on our awesome new events page!
