Hello UXers, Welcome to the 1st Happy Hour of 2018. The community has spoken and we answered. Our members have been requesting UX Happy Hour and it's finally here. Come join us in the vibrant art district of RINO at the Great Divide Barrel Bar. There's plenty of parking (at their lot next to the showroom) and a host of delicious beers on tap.
