I almost don’t want to tell you about our latest Sacramento Bloggers meetup location because then you will all go and I won’t be be able to get in next time and there I’ll be, standing outside in the rain like a whiny wet dog getting denied by tall, muscular, bald bouncers in black while you are all enjoying yourselves inside this fabulous new place.
As some of you know, Nichole Beaudry and I co-founded a network of bloggers here in Sacramento and this week, we held our December Meetup/Toys for Tots Drive at a nightclub in El Dorado Hills, CA, called Reunion (if you click the link, turn down volume if at work or the baby’s asleep).
Our Social Media Manager, Stephanie Porter, discovered it, secured it, and the next thing you know, we are taking over their entire VIP booth section the other night and talking blog.
Here’s the part that’s going to cause me to stand out in the rain:
Reunion is a classy looking joint geared toward 30-50 year-olds.
They host a Happy Hour with $4.00 Cosmos and a $6.00 buffet and this buffet? We’re not talking nachos and cocktail weenies, people. (Sample cocktail buffet menu)
And here’s how awesome and nationally famous Sacramento Bloggers has become: people traveled from as far away as Salt Lake City to attend. I’m not kidding. Cobi (of Saga Girls) flew in the day of the event (a Wednesday, mind you) and left the next morning.
Wednesday nights also brings…..wait for it…… dueling pianos!
… and big-ass disco balls. So, if that dueling piano guy on the left’s head was the Earth, then the disco ball would be… Jupiter.
They made a custom drink for us called The Blog. Or The Blogger. I’m not sure. My hearing ain’t so good.
And then there’s the view of the El Dorado Town Hills Center Lake (probably not its real name) from the patio…
My husband gave me a bunch of toys for the Toys for Tots drive, so it was raining Ironmen..
What it was not raining was regular human men because even though our last meetup produced many males, we musta scared ’em off or the one guy that did show up musta notta got the memo. You know, that man memo that goes out like the Batman symbol in the sky that women can’t see which is how every male communicates with each other:
(to be read in a scary Boris Karloff-like voice)
If you’re a guyyyyyy, I wouldn’t go to the Decemberrrrrr Bloggerrrrrr meeeeeeetup if I were youuuuuu….just sayin’…..
Nevertheless, Jeremy of Budget Travel Adventures didn’t see the Bat symbol in the sky and braved the very female group that night.
Anyway, as much as I don’t want you to know about it, Reunion is a fabulous place with a Happy Hour you really should try some time. While Wednesdays are casual, they do have a dress code the rest of the week. I told you this place was classy.
