Happy Hour Activities

by Roberta
(AZ)

Our group really likes to do Happy Hour activities. And we do use both alcoholic beverages and non. At this time we do it once a month. But they'd do it every week!

Each time we have a theme, like beer (especially at Octoberfest time), or margaritas, or wine, or tropical. We also serve a snack to go along with the theme, trying to include something both non-sugar and non-salt (or low) since several of our group are on restricted diets. We also include a special decoration of some kind to follow the theme, whether it be cute napkins, a few centerpieces, cups, etc. Our staff and any volunteers may also somewhat dress up for the theme too. And music of course!

These Happy Hours become a sort of mini party, but are much easier to do than a more planned and formal party. And the attendance is great.

Happy Hour Parties

by Marsha Sue
(Minnesota)

Seniors in over 55 housing love to have weekly or monthly happy hour parties. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages can be served. Having a theme for the gathering generates more interest and attendance; and table service and decorations can match the theme.

For example, "October Wine and Beer Taste Fest" with pretzels, sausages and different kinds of cheddar cheeses goes over really well.

"Champagne and Chocolates" in February is a great event to indulge a sweet tooth, a love for bubbly beverages and a date with a Sweetie!

"Holiday Cheer" with eggnog, hot chocolate and cream sherries, brandies and ciders with cookies and sweets warms the heart.

"Summer Cocktails and Smoothies" with chips and dips and burgers gets everyone outside and mingling. Dream up your own combinations and have a lot of fun!
