This week is Third Thursday Hangs at Frank & Lupe’s in Old Town Scottsdale, and while we won’t commit to being there before 5PM, their happy hour starts at 3PM…So feel free pregame on the patio and we’ll see you there – the weather should be perfect.  We had a great group last time, and this month’s trophy may or may not feature a tiny sombrero. Invite your peeps and come hang (from about 5:30-7:30).  Don’t forget to HMU the next time you’re on Instagram and Facebook and we can swap stories.
