Last Thursday’s Summer Home-o Hotel Happy Hour was a blast and the rain held out just long enough to give us a lovely evening. We’ll be making some changes,  such as adding another bar to alleviate the lines and improve the flow. I’m going to try my hardest to negotiate a more affordable drink price.  I’m already looking forward to next month’s Summer Home-o Hotel Happy Hour.

Now, back to your regularly-scheduled HHHH. For anyone wondering why there is already another HHHH, there will be two a month over the summer. One will be held at The Dupont Hotel every month and a second will be at a different location. This month’s HHHH is returning to the Renaissance M Street Hotel, another hotel that has really gotten it right in the past year and half.  We will have a large open space and an outdoor patio! We will be located in the lounge area immediately to the left of the lobby. The hotel will have four different bars set up: a main bar serving all your options – liquor, beer, wine and the drink special, a second bar with only the drink special, a third bar with beer and wine only and the Illy Store adjacent to the lounge will be closed off for our group and will be serving only beer and wine.

The Renaissance Hotel is also the host hotel for DC Black Pride. Come to HHHH and help welcome the arrivals for the weekend’s events.

Drink prices are:

Cocktails and Wine: $7

Beer: $5

Drink Special, Raspberry Lemonade: $6 ($1 from each drink special will support SMYAL)


This month’s LGBT group is SMYAL. From the SMYAL website:

 The Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League (SMYAL) is the only Washington, DC metro area service organization solely dedicated to supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. Founded in 1984, SMYAL is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.

Our mission is to promote and support self-confident, healthy, productive lives for LGBTQ youth as they journey from adolescence into adulthood. To fulfill our mission, we concentrate our commitment and energy on five focus areas: (1) Life Skills & Leadership Development, (2) Counseling & Support, (3) Health & Wellness Education, (4) Safe Social Activities, and (5) Community Outreach and Education.

One dollar from each drink special, the Raspberry Lemonade, will go to support SYMAL. So please, drink A LOT of Raspberry Lemonades!

See everyone Thursday.
