Well our first #DeHappyHour for Southern Delaware was a great success !  All in attendance, about 30 tweeps (I lost count as other patrons came in and just joined in) and non-tweeps, had a great time at Abbott’s Grill in Downtown Milford.  We had a great time meeting each other, many of us for the first time, and networking with one another.

Thanks to Chrissy Sarro and Abbot’s Grill for hosting this event.  Abbott’s offers a great menu with upscale appetizers and wonderful entree’s and sandwiches.   We took over Bald Jason’s Pub, and even included those who were sitting at the bar.

 Networking and meeting new people were they key to this event, but we also had fun getting together.

Shortly before the 8:00 the Mayor, Joseph “Ronnie” Rogers and some of the City Council showed up and were incorporated into the group.

We didn’t solve all of Kent and Sussex County’s problems but we did discuss possibilities for future events.  The need for more local Social Network Media training and a Delaware Poken.  While the business Cards were flying around (a no no for #DeHappyHour) it was OK this time, we were newbies to this event.  Pokens would have been great.  So I’ll be checking into that possibility.

Thanks to Elizabeth Purcell of DwntwnMilford for Suggesting the location and helping with crowd control.
