We use it everyday. Some often question “What did we do without it?”. Without a doubt the internet, or ‘the ‘net’ as commonly referred to, has changed our world in a myriad of ways. Over the past few years, blogs have been at the forefront of exposing personal thoughts, disseminating information and keeping the masses entertained. This Tuesday at Sutra Lounge, we gather a number of your favorite bloggers to ” ‘Net Work”, exchange ideas and meet their loyal readers.

    I am unhappily working at happy hour. BLAH.

  • Nick_L_Odeon

    i was actually thinking of flying up for this.. because i’m just that impulsive.. but my money is funny, and my credit won’t get it..

    *insert sad face here..*

  • BmoreCreative

    Hmm..I’m working in Bethesda…I may slide thru after

  • #1Snowflake

    Should I come?????????

  • Sasha

    The changes they made to Sutra are cool. I liked all the wood….I said wood…anyway I saw the VSB t shirt on an energetic fella. I asked Leon which brotha is he? Leon said ‘Champ, I think the other one is based out of Philly’. Now I see it was Panama, either way I didn’t know what to say and didn’t have any witty banter…so I ate the 4 spicy wings on a too big plate and played the background. I respect what us guys do here and always laugh at the sarcasm. Maybe I shoulda said that?

    • Panama Jackson

      @Sasha, yeah, you should have just come to holler at me. i talked to everybody up in that place. lol. witty banter is unnecessary. we could have just taken some shots for the hell of it. lol

  • klysha

    Nice happy hour…& Sutra was a nice spot…..the blogger community should do those more often.

    You’re much friendlier and thinner (lol) in real life than I might have imagined.

    Did you ever figure out how to handle those two Heinekens? LOL

    • Panama Jackson

      @klysha, and sexxy. you seem to have forgotten sexxy. lol.

  • !i$@ bee

    Happy Hour was fun and I finally got to meet Leon & the illustrious Panama D. Jackson! Both y’all dudes were real chill and I think the event turned out great. I agree w. klysha, this would make an awesome monthly thing.

    • Panama Jackson

      @!i$@ bee, it was fun and it was nice to meet you as well.

      perhaps somebody can workon it being a monthly thing where a gang of cool as the f*ck bloggers just meet up in random locales throughout DC

  • Jeremy

    Thank ya’ll for coming out to that happy hour. We actually plan on doing one in another month or so. In addition to the host committee from the previous event, we’ll be reaching out to other local bloggers who are interested in interacting with their readership and networking with their peers. I’ll give you the heads up!

    Again, thank you all for coming out and I’m glad you had a good time. We do it every Tuesday, so..
