September Happy Hour

Thurs, Sep 27th, 5:30 - 7:30pm
Live Life Chill - 300 President Clinton Ave

This month we're headed to a brand new venue in the heart of the River Market District - Live Life Chill.  LLC is located right behind the Rev Room music venue where Rumba restaurant used to be.  The decor and the drinks have a laid-back tropical theme, and the weather should be mild enough by the end of the month to enjoy those drinks outside on the large patio overlooking Riverfront Park!
