Sounds like fun.
We would be able to host one now and then also! We do this quite often with the people we already know; it will be nice to meet MORE people.
Would it be wrong to allow kids on an individual basis...Like, the Friday night it is held at our house, since we have kids and A LOT of our friends (and soon to be friends) have kids we could set up kid friendly drinks and snacks and they could play, or watch a movie, in the playroom. We happen to have a great playroom!
And since this is a happy hour type event and people will be driving home it isn't something I would be worried about having my children around...
Is that totally against the whole idea you originally had Girlyjeep? Is it sorta defeating the purpose?
My, what a pretty glass house you live in...
