Pixels & Pints

June 20th, 2016 Comments off

pixelslogo

ASMPDC is thrilled to be hosting the June “Combined Happy Hour” with WPOW (#wpowdc), APA DC, WHNPA and DCVC.

This is the annual Pixels & Pints event. It will be held at Local 16, on Tuesday 6/21, upstairs in the “lounge room”, starting at 6:30PM. Instagram images with the tag #pixelspints2016 will be projected for everyone too see – So everyone start using the hashtag: #pixelspints2016 starting today.

This normally goes without saying, but keep the #pixelspints2016 pictures to strictly camera phone images. This hashtag is not to post portfolio or promo pieces. It’s just for fun. There will be Instagram pics scrolling on a projector while we enjoy drinks.

There will be merchandise available, so that is even more incentive to show up.

Hope to see you there!
