YYJ - Whisky Wisemen Society on the Rise in the Capital City
With the execution of it’s seventh official #thirdthursday event last week, and attendance continuing to climb every month, the Victoria chapter of Whiskey Wisemen Society is starting to pick up some serious steam.
What started out as a small gathering of a few friends back in April has grown in to a diverse monthly event, which sees dozens of people from all backgrounds and sectors in Victoria coming out to casually mingle and and network over good drinks for a great cause. The YYJ Chapter, partnered with Victoria’s Together Agains Poverty Society (TAPS BC), holds it’s #thirdThursday events every month at the Bard and Banker. With their growing numbers and increasing loyalty amongst regular attendees, the YYJ chapter is quickly becoming one of the most prominent of the expansion chapters launched by Whisky Wisemen Society in 2015.
“Our success to this point has largely been on the backs of our awesome executive team, and the super supportive folks making up the Board Members in Vancouver. We also have a great core of ‘regulars’ who come out monthly and always bring new friends. I highly encourage any folks from the broader Whisky Wisemen community to stop by our events if they are in Victoria, and see what an island-style #thirdthursday is all about!"
