Ultra Heavy Happy Hour (IHF Virtual Gatherings) Thread
« on: November 19, 2020, 08:23:26 pm »
Howdy folks! With the blessing of the Mod Squad, I though it would be cool to try and plan a few Virtual Hour Hours for those of us on the Forum where we can a voice to a WAYWT face, and chit chat about denim, beer, cars, leather goods, etc.

EDIT: Inaugural "Ultra Heavy Happy Hour" is scheduled for December 11, 2020 @ 21:00GMT.
We will have multiple co-hosts on the Zoom link to ensure if one of our internet goes out, the meeting does not get cancelled. A link to the event will be POSTED HERE when available, and we encourage everyone to join in!

CONTESTS
: I am a sucker for cheesy "networking" and "team-building" exercises, but I am working on three "contests" to make our meeting a little fun with some ice breakers. I am working on finalizing some fun little prizes, but here are some teasers for contest ideas:

1. Best Zoom Outfit (Make it fun, make it Iron Heart). - $25 Gift Card to IHUK

2. Best Background (For those unfamiliar, Zoom allows you to upload a background image in place of your actual background - this can be fun and a great conversation starter. Just make it "family friendly" as most people will be having their screen open in their living room where little ones are bound to be running amuck).
- IHF Ceramic Coffee Mug + IHF Pin Shipped to Your Location!

3. Oldest Iron Heart Item - As direct as it sounds, have an IHSH-01 in your closet? Perhaps you have some 634 with Levis Arcs and a Red Tab? Show them to us, you could win! - SURPRISE PRIZE


Other fun things to prep:
Support your local breweries (if able) and show us some hops filled concoction with a hilarious or witty name.
Have a great cocktail recipe (I'm looking at you @summ3rhays ) - share it in this thread before the event so we can make them if we prefer something stronger than beer.

BONUS: If someone is great at photoshop and wants to build an "official" background for the event with the IH logo and the event name, that would be cool as well. You may not win Best Background (Or maybe you will???) but the screens shots would be EPIC.

Thanks everyone who had interest in this!

I’m in! Time is pretty irrelevant for me during this pandemic, and we def have 0 holiday plans, so I’m pretty sure to be able to meet at any given day/time.

I’m flexible with dates and times as well. I’ve always found it fascinating to hear someone’s voice for the first time after interacting with them online for so long. It adds value to the forum experience for me. Once I hear their voice, that’s what I hear when I read their comments, it’s a significant shift in perspective.
Waiting for the time when I can finally say, that this has all been wonderful, but now I’m on my way...Phish

I'm interested.

Friday's are a great day, and that 3PM central or thereabouts works excellent for me.

The first time I heard some IH/forum voices was in the Q/A session for F/W20 and it was really fun.

I am hereby requesting a virtual tour of @neph93's "vest"ibule.

Excellent!

I will admit to having commitments both Nov 27 as well as Dec 4.

So, two options - we do a test run tomorrow (I know, not a lot of time for planning...) or we kick this off Dec 18th as a little “Pre Holiday” gathering...

I'm down for a test run. I'm usually done working by 2:00 pm central, daily. I don't need any encouragement, either. Beer, happy hour(in-person or virtual) is right up my alley...

I like this.  Being a gypsy during Covid can be very lonesome.  My kids are shitty happy hour partners.  Lightweights.
