Last Tuesday – July a Virtual YPOS Happy Hour
July 28 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
As sure as the sun is to rise… every month for the last 9 years, the YPOSeattle Happy Hour (“Last Tuesday”) would bring hundreds of young professionals to a bar or restaurant in Seattle around a common interest. Community.
Covid-19 has changed the way the world operates. YPGroup Communities, not being exempt from change, is in a position to pivot, innovate and continue doing what we love: Bring people together. ♥
For the past 9 years our Last Tuesday happy hours have been a YPOS staple. An event we enjoyed hosting each month that featured the most important people in Seattle, YOU! Before we went fully digital we would host 150+ like-minded young professionals proudly displaying NO nametags and having meaningful conversations (no sales pitches).
Well, virtual is a bit different. So we changed things around to accommodate our new virtual landscape and also kept things the same with our signature YPOS style (see above). This happy hour will have different topic-oriented rooms (you choose the room), a cocktail making class (TY Jameson for helping us put together a bada$$ cocktail making box), and awesome partners (hint: discounts).
So reserve your spot, purchase a box (if you so choose) and we will see you on July 28th @ 5:30 pm!
**This is a 21+ event**

Here are the details/schedule:
5:30-6 PM – Cocktail Making Class: You have the opportunity to create a couple of cocktails with one of our favorites, Jameson. This will include an instructor, cocktail ingredients, and of course other like-minded professionals! For each cocktail boxes sold, we will give a portion of the proceeds to benefit the: Bartenders Emergency Assistance Program
Your box will include: Jameson, lime/lemon, ginger beer, Jameson swag (get pumped it’s some pretty cool stuff) and digital discounts from our partners (sent directly to your inbox)
6 PM-7 PM Per your choosing, you will be placed into 1 of 3 rooms:
Room #1 Career Dev / Jobs Connector:
Think of the Job Connector room like a virtual jobs fair, where you get to have a casual conversation with a career coach, a hiring manager or recruiter from a company looking to fill roles and your peers while picking up tips and tricks to stand out when applying for a position.
Room #2 Current Events: this month’s topic is: Racial Discrimination.
Each month, the Current Events room will leverage a digital resource as a tool to help carry the conversation. This month’s conversation resource is the Netflix Documentary: 13th.
YPOx will be streaming the documentary on Monday, July 27th, for those who’d like to watch ahead of time in a group setting. Join us then, or watch it on your own.
Note: You don’t need to watch the movie to participate in the happy hour discussion.
Room #3 Games Room:
Connect with others in a casual and fun setting. The Game Room will feature three games. This months games include:
We have planned for each game to last 15-20 minutes, however if participants get really excited about a particular game and want to continue beyond that there is some flexibility.
7 PM – whenever Networking: We will all reconvene in the “main” room for some more digitally awesome networking!
About the Virtual Last Tuesday:
If you’ve been to one of our happy hours, you’d know that we don’t enjoy forcing structure. Organic networking is sort of our thing and we intend to keep it that way, for the most part. But current events call for adaptation into a virtual world; adding just a sprinkle of structure with.
So, we are asking you to come prepared to network like normal, introduce yourself like normal, and answer a quick icebreaker to get the conversation flowing.
OH… and if you want to have your virtual business card (your Linkedin link) ready to hand out (copy and paste) we won’t be mad about it.
