Last week we had a split vote- 7 for Thursday Happy Hour and 7 for no happy hour. We would love to get more feedback, this time on the format of happy hour.
Would you rather a virtual or in person happy hour?
Virtual - I'm not comfortable getting around crowds yet
In Person- We can meet at an outdoor Brewery and stay socially distant
