Monthly last-Friday happy hour at El Mercado Restaurant on South First and West Gibson St

Next Last Friday Happy Hour — October 25th

  • Friday, October 2tth, 5:00pm  – 7 ish pm, El Mercado (S. 1st and Gibson), on the back patio

This may be our last Happy Hour in 2013 —  last chance to fulfill your New Years resolution of getting out and socializing with your neighbors.

BCNA will provide some nachos to munch on … all you need to do is to show up, mingle with neighbors and imbibe a discounted adult beverage.

Best of all you will find out that us BCNA folks are really party animals in the evening that pose as cranky neighborhood advocates during the daylight hours.

Great weather, cheap outing, family friendly, and affable Bouldin neighbors … this is social networking, Bouldin style.

Cheers !



BCNA Last Friday Happy Hour — March 29th




It’s that time of the  month when Bouldin neighbors trek down to  S. 1st and Gibson to socialize without a computer, smartphone or tablet.   On the last friday in February, over 70 neighbors (accompanied by kids and dogs) gathered on the back patio of El Mercado to visit with each other.

The 3 Wise Bouldin Men (on left) solved global poverty, Paco Bell (unofficial BCNA mascot) made new friends, and lots of neighbors stayed for dinner where conversations about politics and vacations continued.

Please join us on Friday (yup, Good Friday), March 29th, from 5-7pm on the back patio of El Mercado, 1302 S. 1st Street



Neighbors Turn Out for Last Friday Happy Hour

IMG_0707Bouldin neighbors turned out for some old-fashioned social networking last Friday at El Mercado.   Around thirty folks came to meet neighbors, old and new.  They mingled over  happy hour nachos , Mexican martini’s and margarita’s on a warm January evening on the restaurant’s front deck.  And they are looking forward to the next one on the last Friday in February.

It was great to see our community socializing in person.  The internet connects us on the e-list, on this web-site and on Facebook but hanging out with neighbors during Happy Hour gives us the opportunity to connect faces and voices to email addresses.

Please come join us for our next Last Friday Happy Hour on February 22nd from 5-7pm.  We’ll meet again at El Mercado but this time we’ve reserved the larger back patio.   There’s a cash bar, happy hour specials on appetizers and drinks, and BCNA will buy a few rounds of nachos and queso.   Bring the whole family as the back patio is both children and dog friendly.  And be prepared to enjoy an evening with Bouldin neighbors — we are an interesting bunch !
