Happy Hours

Once a month, 24HourDallas and the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association host happy hours with local, state or federal elected officials.

24HourDallas and the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association host regular happy hours with Dallas and Dallas-area elected officials.

These free, one-hour receptions give us a "group speed date" opportunity where we network, ask questions and share our mission with local, state and federal policymakers.

Hosted by a restaurant or bar in the elected official's district, our hosts offer complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. Sometimes space may be limited.

Please note that these happy hours are always relationship-building socials, not political fundraisers.
