January DC Blogger Happy Hour Recap – Hosted by TurboTax

January’s happy hour last week was hosted by the fine people at TurboTax.  They traveled all the way to Busboys and Poets on 5th and K to meet up with DC’s best and brightest.  A good time was had by all, with discussions ranging from the all things personal finance, blogging, and the NFL Playoffs (at least within my conversations).

The night went on with good food, great drinks and a few giveaways (some of which you may see returned to you readers in the near future!).  There was even some promotional material about a TurboTax Free eFile iPhone app that will file your taxes for you (I thought this was pretty damn cool!).

As the evening wound down, I unfortunately had to take off a bit early, but I heard stories of Chelsea, J. Money (no surprise there) and a blogger who shall remain nameless (but I promise you, you’d be shocked) closed the bar down with a couple of shots.

It was great to see the old friends and to meet some new people that helped put the whole shindig together.

In attendance:

I look forward to next month’s happy hour where we can all get together and… well… drink.

    I wonder why Jim’s face is a touch rosey? Good times all around for sure 😉

    Jim gave me the ok to call 911 if he was on the ground passed out and still v. red. Otherwise, meh, standard Asian flush. :-)

    I’m a dork but I was pretty impressed with the TT iPhone App demo. Not that I have an iPhone, but it looked pretty cool!

    I am highly jealous that we don’t have a So Cal group. Hello @TTaxChels @turbotaxbob – we want one here. 😀

    That is really need to hang out with all the bloggers you interact with quite frequently. Very cool

    Awesome gathering and pic guys! That’s sweet!

    Although Jim looks like he may be enjoying himself a little too much, or pooping :)

    Haha… these get togethers seem to be monthly. Although, the turbo tax people were a great treat this month.
