A Family-Friendly Happy Hour
Happy hours are inconvenient. They’re in between pick-up time and dinner and never include the family. For those of us who are away from our kids all day they sometimes can mean missing the only time you have together. So we opt out and miss our opportunity to connect with potential clients, vendors, partners and your team.
At Milk. Beer. Wine. we're redefining happy hours by making them an event fit for the entire family.
Costs: $20 for adults and $10 for children
Fees cover entry into the museum, play, onsite childcare, drinks for the entire family and a light snack. Dinner will be available for purchase onsite.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS IT?
Milk. Beer. Wine. is a happy hour designed to give working professionals an opportunity to meet new people, connect with old friends and network. The event is family-friendly which means kids and partners are welcome along with everyone else.
WHY A FAMILY-FRIENDLY HAPPY HOUR?
Traditional happy hours are hard on families — especially families with young children. At Milk. Beer. Wine., you get to enjoy all of the benefits of attending a happy hour (the people, the food, the drinks, the fun, etc.) without having to leave your family behind. Your kids can hang out with you or meet new friends while playing on their own in a kid-friendly venue alongside their onsite nannies.
WHAT DO YOU DO AT A FAMILY-FRIENDLY HAPPY HOUR?
The same thing you do at every other happy hour. Eat. Drink. Talk. Mingle. Network. We'll have nannies onsite to keep the kids occupied while you socialize.
