About the Event:
Due to a valued sponsor, our cocktail kits are free on a first come, first serve basis this month! So grab your cocktail kit, tell us what room you want to network in, and save the date! 🍹🍸
The Happy Hour Schedule:

We kick off our happy hour with a guided cocktail making class by our Seattle based brand ambassador, Stephanie Olsen.
Each month, you'll have the option of purchasing a cocktail kit - including alcohol, mixers, and a bunch of brand swag - ahead of the event. When the happy hour starts, Stephanie will guide us through constructing your custom drink (in an informative session), that you'll take with you to your selected breakout room.
**This is a 21+ event**
The Breakout Rooms:
Room #1: The Casual Networking Room is EXACTLY what you think it is! It's the most casual, laid-back version of networking that can be had in a virtual world.
This month, we are combing our Casual Networking Room and Current Events Room and hosting a "bring your pets to the happy hour" room. Think of it as a pet show and tell, while talking about Covid pets, how you can foster and adopt pets through PAWS, playing games and networking
Room #2: Think of the Career Connect Room like a virtual jobs fair, where you get to have a casual conversation with your peers, and a career coach while picking up tips and tricks to stand out when applying for a position.
You can do this, all while having a drink, and nobody will judge!
History of the "Last Tuesday" Happy Hour
Launched back in 2011, Last Tuesday is a casual networking happy hour event (no name tags, no sales pitches, no judgment) that falls on the last Tuesday of every month.
Pre-Covid, the YPOSeattle events team would pick various venues throughout the city to host 200 or so of Seattle’s best, in an effort to better connect the most ambitious and motivated individuals in the community. Think of this as an intro to networking, or a laid back way for the power networker, the job seeker, recruiter or business owner to meet and interact with hundreds of other young professionals.
Well, the world is different now. Your health and safety are our priority so virtual is our new reality. So we changed things around to accommodate for the new landscape while maintaining our signature YPOSeattle happy hour style
