This is an informal, no-agenda event. A get together over cocktails to mingle. In the spirit of having no agenda, Hooray Thursday will start after work (5ish) and have no end time. Come as you are, when you want and leave when you want. Use this time to get to know your other MYP members better. There will be no charge for this event (but drinks are on your own).
