It was great to see 15-20 online journalists turn out Wednesday night for the inaugural happy hour of Philly’s Online News Association chapter, a great turnout considering the limited amount of promotion and summer’s siren call of the shore. We had a wide range of publications represented, lots of friendly people, some great journalism-y discussions, a few job leads and $2 off beers. Can’t complain about any of that.
Triumph Brewing Company was a great host, aside from one slight error on our welcome sign (this is for real):
Co-organizer Amy Fiscus, who called in the reservation, logically explained: “I was hoping to attract some people who’d give us money.”
They printed out a new sign for us and we had ourselves a good time. Details coming soon on next month’s happy hour.
