Erin Go Braugh?

Following up on last year’s joint holiday party for SLA Georgia and the Atlanta Law Libraries Association (ALLA) at Eclipse di Luna, our 2015 celebration took on an Irish flavor.

With support from Thomson West and Priory Solutions (thank you Wendy Maines and Laura Wettig, respectively!), Ri Ra Irish Pub, in Midtown was a fun (ri ra in Gaelic) and convenient location for over twenty SLA Georgia and ALLA members and guests who noshed on a variety of small plates, including vegetarian options and an assortment of delectable desserts. Our dedicated bar tender kept drinks (wine, beer and even champagne) flowing as host Meg Butler led us in a matching game with a holiday theme. Think kisses and mistletoe or reindeer and sleigh.

Besides the first two matching teams winning prizes, Meg raffled the remaining six gift cards from Amazon and Starbuck’s. And continuing a practice from last year, guests brought toy donations for the Georgia Truancy Intervention Project (TIP). Thanks to Meg and Austin Williams who planned the party. Events like the holiday party are great opportunities for catching up with friends and meeting new people. This year, I learned about members who retired and relocated as well as those who changed jobs. While you’ll have to attend future networking mixers to find out what you missed, you can view photos from the party at this Flickr album:
