SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego chapter of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) will host its next "HRC Connect" event tonight at Bow Wow Beauty Shoppe, 1735 University Ave. in Hillcrest.
HRC Connect is an opportunity for community members to come together to socialize, network, drink and have a good time at different locations throughout San Diego.
The event is structured so that attendees are able to have fun, with only a short period of time allotted to giving a brief HRC national update.
HRC San Diego chapter leaders say that the free monthly events are "absolute musts on your social calendar" and are for everyone, including those who are new to the area looking to meet quality friends or "San Diego socialites."
Bow Wow Beauty Shoppe provides pet grooming and sitting services and is opening for the evening exclusively for this event. Guests are encouraged to bring their four-legged friends to the mixer, which will be from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
HRC San Diego chapter member Shaun Flak said, "Pets are welcome, so don't miss out on this event!"
Attendees will be offered discounts for a future visit to Bow Wow.
Cocktails and small appetizers from Bamboo Lounge will also be provided at the event. After the mixer, guests are encouraged to head one block west to Bamboo Lounge, which will be hosting a special sushi and wine happy hour for those who mention "HRC Connect" until 9 pm.
