On Friday, August 23, AABANY held its End of Summer Happy Hour at K2 Lounge at the Rubin Museum of Art. Members and friends got to mix and mingle while enjoying 2-for-1 drinks during the first hour and munching on tasty hors d’oeuvres. A live DJ played music and the museum was open for everyone to enjoy exhibits and performances throughout the night, until 10 pm. Brochures about the NE Regional/Fall Conference were distributed. Thanks to everyone who came out. We hope everyone had a great summer and we wish you all a happy, safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend.
