I love PR (public relations)

My hometown of Nashville boasts an abundance of talented PR firms, but D.C. is truly bursting with fabulously useful PR events.

This week, I’ll be attending two flack-tastic gatherings. The first because I’m hosting it, the second because it features a rockin’ panel of D.C. journalists I’d like to get to know. And because the hostess makes for a delightful coffee date.

So, if you are a Washington D.C. PR pro (or just wanna hang out with cool people who like to talk a lot), I hope you’ll show your face on:

Wednesday, January 13 at 6:30 p.m. — it’s time to resume our monthly DC Flacks happy hour at the District Chop House downtown. Join us for cheap beer (a near-impossible find in this town), talented PR, PA and Web professionals, and onion rings. We’ll see you at the upstairs bar; membership is free.

Thursday, January 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Busboys and Poets up near U St. — my new friend Amanda Littlejohn is bringing together a killer panel of DC journalists and has named it, Twitch! Public Relations in the Age of Social Media. Team Newman will be there. Will you? Sign up and pay the $20 registration fee here.

See you there, folks!
