We'll be having a Happy Hour this Thursday, July 27, starting around 6:30PM, at the 18th Street Lounge, in Washington, DC. The Lounge is located at 1212 18th Street, NW, near the intersection of Jefferson, 18th, and Connecticut (look for an unmarked door next to a mattress store and walk on up; directions here).
Among the reasons to celebrate:
—the publication of Reason's annual August-September issue, with its controversial special section, "Immigration Now, Immigration Tomorrow, Immigration Forever."
—Reason being named one "The 50 Best Magazines" by The Chicago Tribune for the third time in four years.
—first-place finishes in the 48th annual Southern California Journalism Awards by Reason's Ron Bailey, Matt Welch, and me, and a fistful of second-place and honorable mentions, too.
Special guest alert: Reason's S.F.-based Web Editor, Tim Cavanaugh, will be on hand to discuss the fine points of Middle Eastern politics and his stunning appreciation of the original Star Trek series in the Aug-Sept ish.
Bonus treat: Randomly sized Reason t-shirts to the first 25 guests who make themselves known to us.
See you on Thursday.
