The Happy Hour is Dead – Recap Pics


Simply put, The Happy Hour is Dead – De La Soul Tribute was on point.  Lots of friends and fam (more than we expected) came through to celebrate De La’s catalog, making Thursday look like a Saturday.

Shouts to all those that attended, thanks to Mo, Reggie, Gene, and Jeremy (1920 DC) for once again holding us down, Madison Davenport for the PR/marketing support, and all those that helped spread the word (Facebook, twitter, etc).

Our next happy hour will be in April and trust me when I tell you that we won’t disappoint.

And just in case you’re wondering, “Skeaser” is a combination of skit + teaser….
