Alumni Charity Challenge Training!

masonFTCMasonRVA will be attending the Hardywood Food Truck Court this Thursday (Aug 14) to begin training for the 2nd Annual Alumni Charity Challenge hosted by VCU at Hardywood on September 17.

MasonRVA contributed over 1000 lbs of food to last year’s #alumnicharitychallenge (thanks to a little help from our friends in Northern Virginia) and won bragging rights.  We expect alumni chapters from rival universities to bring their “A game” this year, so we need everyone to plan to attend this year’s challenge to win again.

The food truck court is a family oriented event, so bring the family, a few lawn chairs, and enjoy some great food and drink.  Look for the MasonRVA tent to join follow Mason alumni, grab some free swag (we still have some MasonRVA t-shirts and koozies), and begin training for the challenge.  We will meet briefly at 6:30 to discuss strategy and share ideas!

See you Thursday!

Rob.

MasonRVA at Hardywood Food Truck Court – Thursday, Sep 12

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery | Richmond, Virginia

MasonRVA’s last 2nd Thursday Happy Hour of the summer at Hardywood will be Thursday, September 12th.  Sorry if we missed anyone who came out in August, but holiday and other scheduling conflicts got the best of us.  We will be at Hardywood tomorrow night (Sep 12).

We also will be discussing plans for fall/winter Happy Hours and other events including Harness Racing in October, watch parties, the Mason/VCU game in January, and if there might be enough interest in a brewery tour in Richmond or the Brewridge Trail in Charlottesville.

If you would like to get involved and cannot make it out to Hardywood, please send us an email.

Hope to see you on Thursday night (Sep 12)!

– Rob.

MasonRVA Second Thursday’s Happy Hour is on the the 2nd Thursday of (almost) every month (except when it is not).  Like MasonRVA on Facebook or Follow Us on Twitter for future dates, times, and locations of happy hours, watch parties, and other events in Richmond.

Happy Hour Redux

The dangerous weather came and went last Thursday so my decision to postpone may have been premature.

Weather Report - Thu, June 20, 2013

Actually turned out to be a nice evening. Hardywood was not as crowded as usual so lines were short and there was plenty of seating.  The downside was the Street Foodies options were limited.

The weather report for this Thursday could not be better and looks like the we will have an even better turnout.

 

MasonRVA KoozieBring your family and friends and I will bring the Koozies for the Capitol Trail Pale Ale.

See you at Hardywood on Thursday, June 20 @ 6pm,

Rob.

 

Summer of ’13 Second Thursdays Happy Hour @ Hardywood

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery | Richmond, Virginia

Over the summer months of June, July, August, and September, MasonRVA will host our Second RVA Street FoodiesThursday’s Happy Hour at the Hardywood Food Truck Court.  Hardywood does a good job to make this a family friendly event:

RVA Street Foodies Court runs from 6-9pm every Thursday through the season and is a family friendly environment. All ages are welcome at the brewery.

In the past, we have seen Richmond’s well known Juggler and Magician Johnathan Austin at the food court and there is always an ice cream truck and the King of Pops food cart, so bring the whole family.  In fact, bring your non-Mason friends and their families too!  Everyone is welcome to join us on June 13th, July 11th, August 8th, and September 12th during the Summer of ’13.

Our plan is to stakeout an area in the grass and setup our tent, some chairs, and maybe a lawn game or two to give everyone a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the evening with friends and family.

We look forward to making some new friends at Hardywood this summer! – Rob.
