January **SECOND** Thursday Drinks: 'Little Christmas'
Peacock Alley, The Willard Hotel, Washington D.C.

Join Cantab DC for this month's **SECOND** Thursday Drinks at the historic Willard Hotel, as we make a belated start to the New Year! In lieu of our regular monthly Firt Thursday Drinks, this time we will hold the drinks on the Second Thursday of the month. This 8th annual gathering, dubbed the 'Little Christmas' Drinks, is a celebration of Cambridge in all its sartorial splendor! Come join the crowd and share some New Year's libations)! Wear your gowns, blazers, scarves, "droopies" and whatever other finery you picked up at Cambridge!  Be sure to save the date for this ever-popular Cantab DC tradition!

The Drinks is an elegant but low-key event where you can enjoy a great mix of alumni of all ages, degree programs and life experiences, with lots to discuss in a friendly and easygoing environment. Come imbibe in one of America's most historic hotels, the Willard. Catch up with old friends and make new ones!

Newcomers Welcome: If you are new in DC or this is your first time at a Cambridge event, make sure to email webmaster@cantabdc.org ahead of time and we'll see that you are greeted and introduced to folks on your arrival. Bring your friends and family - everyone with an alumni connection is welcome! View pictures of the previous Happy Hours online and see who is coming to the next one on Facebook.

Please Note: The drinks usually kicks off with the first few people trickling in a few minutes after 6:30 and most having arrived by 7:30. Once entering in through the Willard main entrance, just go through the lobby, up the steps and past the piano to the long hall called “Peacock Alley”. Then just look for the Cambridge Crest or memorabilia, scarves are an easy giveaway these days! In recent months our group has grown and sometimes been asked to move out of Peacock Alley to the larger/more private seating area just adjacent to the lobby desk. If you get there right at 6:30 or if you do not see another Cantab in Peacock Alley, please don't run away! The rest either will be there shortly or have moved to the adjacent spot.
