Democratic GAIN Political Networking Happy Hour filled to capacity Cole's in historic downtown L.A.

Posted By Nikki Enfield, Wednesday, April 29, 2009
Tom Eisenhauer sends in this update from Thursday's event Los Angeles:
About 100 people enjoyed the food - Cole's says they're the "originators of the French Dip" - and the chance to mix and mingle with a diverse crowd that included progressive advocates, campaigns, consultants and government officials. The diversity of the crowd was apparent, and folks got to meet other progressives - from interns to officeholders - whom they wouldn't have seen anywhere else.  (If I'd remembered to take a photo, you could see what I mean.)
Special thanks to our long list of hosts (see below) who made this event possible - and in particular to Sarah Leonard and Ellie Wallace of the Glover Park Group, who did the heavy lifting to make this event such a success.

Thank you New York!

Posted By Nikki Enfield, Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Question:  What does 5 days notice + 8 great organizations + 1 rainy Sunday afternoon equal?  Answer:  A fantastic Political Networking Happy Hour in NYC!

The Political Networking Happy Hour this past Sunday in NYC was such a success that I forgot to take pictures I was talking so much! 

Democratic GAIN would like to thank our co-sponsors:  DL21C, the NY Chapter of Drinking Liberally, the Eleanor Roosevelt Legacy Committee, the New York State Young Democrats, the Manhattan Young Democrats, the New York Democratic Lawyers Council and Latina PAC for all their hard work in putting together this great event.

We had over 150 political professionals join us along with representatives from Rep. Rangel, Rep. Weiner, Rep. Maloney and Rep. Nadler’s offices, folks from the NY State Party (including the State Chair, June O’Neill), the Democratic State Senate Majority office, candidates for City Council, State Comptroller and more! 

I hope everyone who joined us had as much fun as I did!

We are hoping to do another one soon, so keep checking the calendar.
