Q&A Happy Hour at Breck on Blake

JET Sempais – Come join this year’s Q&A Happy Hour at Breck on Blake (Blake St. and 22nd) in Downtown Denver! Meet this year’s crop of new JETs and help them start off on the right foot by sharing your advice and tips. After a Consulate-hosted info session we will head over to the bar for a second round of more casual advice and conversation. Help them by joining in a relaxed and positive environment that will get them even more excited for the adventure to come!

Attire will be business casual (since the newbies have to dress up).
Beer, non-alcoholic drinks, and food will be subsidized – we ask for $10 from Alumni to help cover costs.

Please RSVP to: vicepresident@jetaarockymountain.org

Thanks and can’t wait to see you there!

May’s Networking Nomikai is dedicated to the Otaku in all of us. So we will be checking out Akihabara (!) in Wesminister. Note that we are meeting up on the THIRD sunday of the month so that we aren’t in conflict with mother’s day.
