STLRUG 2015 Kick Off - Happy Hour Event

I want to personally apologize to all of you for the slow start of the St. Louis Revit Users group for 2015.  My family was blessed with a newborn baby girl back in November, and I forgot how much a newborn baby along with working a full time job can take out of you.  It does not leave a whole lot of time for other activities.

The first Happy Hour event of 2015 has been scheduled for Tuesday, April 21st from 5:30-7:00 PM at Helen Fitzgerald's Irish Grill located at 3650 South Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis, MO  63127.
See Link for Happy Hour specials, menu and directions.
Please come out, and join us as we catch up and look forward to our other events in 2015.
If you plan on attending, please visit this Link and RSVP to the event, so Helen's can make sure they have enough room carved out for us.  Look forward to seeing you all there.

The Happy Hour event will then be followed up with a Learning Event in May.  The topic for the next Learning Event is "Favorite Revit Add-ins and Extras".  We will post more details as they become available.
