A manly happy hour

The monthly happy hour back on January 18th was a manly one. Before the arrival of a female brother, 9 men (alumni and collegiate) were in attendance at Sully’s in West Des Moines.

Several rounds of beer flowed and popular meals included chicken tenders, nachos, and 2 brave souls tried the $10 steak dinner. The dinner included a baked potato and Texas toast. It was nothing to write home about, but received positive reviews. It came with a real knife, but only a plastic fork and Styrofoam plate.

Much discussion was had about the upcoming Halsey tournament, the upcoming LEAD Provincial Council, and the general state of the job market and career prospects.

Mark your calendars for the February Happy Hour (Thursday, 2/15/18 CHANGED TO Feb. 22 at Whiskey River in Ankeny). Located in the relatively new Prairie Trail development near Ankeny’s DMACC campus, Whiskey River has proved to be a popular establishment in a quickly-developing part of the Metro. Look on the calendar page of this weblog for more information and link to the FB event.

The Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi will kick off the new year with a happy hour in January.

Make your New Year’s Resolution to join a group of local alumni brothers starting around 5:30 pm.

The award-winning Twin Cities Alumni Chapter (TCAC) has compiled a year-in-review PDF that can be found online here. Check it out to see what our neighbors to the North have accomplished in 2017. It features many good photos throughout its 8 pages.

Another thing to view or save is the Des Moines Business Record’s 2018 “Book of Lists” (online here). This publication notes many of the major employers, groups, boards, industries, etc. around central Iowa. Save it for handy reference during the year.
