Celebrate one year of DC Car Chat with Global Automakers

Can you believe it? August marks one year for the auto community meetup I launched with fellow auto blogger Juan Barnett over at DC Auto Geek. To celebrate, we are teaming up with Global Automakers for an industry happy hour that you won’t want to miss.

In this town, August is the mark of peace and quiet (to some degree) while Congress heads back to their districts to work for a few weeks. And in an election year, August ‘recess’ is especially welcome.

So please join us on Thursday, August 2, to commemorate this occasion. We’ll be heading over to The Source from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Visit our Eventbrite page here for more details, or simply click the ‘register’ button below to join!
