And when she still had leftover liquor, she said "same time next week" and so the Courtland Happy Hour was born.
For many years it was an every Friday event but some of the originals moved on and although new members replaced them, the Courtland every Friday ceased to be.
The Courtland Hotel is now a historic hotel with different owners but the "Courtland Group" lives on. We don't have a Happy Hour every week now but the format is still the same -- you bring whatever you want to drink -- you bring a snack for the communal appetizer table. The party starts at 5:30 and lasts until the last guests leaves. (Usually between 7 and 7:30).
It's a fun way to start the weekend!
What a fun and great idea. I think this sounds like a ton of fun. Hugs, Marty
What a great photo Martha of the Courtland Happy Hour. I know they must have really enjoyed the beauty of your garden too.
LOL - Oliver sees you!
What a great idea and a way to keep the community "mingling"!!! How fun@
Martha, it sounds like we're doing the same thing on Friday evenings! Only we call it Front (or back) Porch Fridays. Wonderful!
Martha, what fun. I'm glad the rain let the party continue. And your roses look so beautiful.
This really is a fun way to start the weekend! Your roses look amazing!
What a lovely tradition and a nice way to keep in touch with good friends.
What fun abd interesting to see how things start and become fixtures.
This sounds like a lot of fun. What a great idea, glad it's still going strong. :-)
It sounds like a very civilized thing to do of a Friday evening. I'm sure it is fun for all who attend. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
What a great Friday night happening. Your roses create a wonderful backdrop for a gathering - but honestly the first thing I noticed were the round tables with yellow tablecloths. Would love to zoom in on them.
Leave it to you to enhance the garden setting!
