First Friday LGBTQ Community Happy Hour Social

First Friday LGBTQ Community Happy Hour Social

Our beloved venue, The Pinzimini Lounge at the Westin Hotel, will be reborn and renamed as The Commentary! Please join us on Friday, November 1 from 7pm to 9pm to get to see at all the wonderful new amenities at The Commentary and catch up with each other. The Commentary has invited our Meetup group in for an exclusive opening night.

You can still enter from the hotel side; but, you will see a brand new entrance dedicated solely to The Commentary. The menu also has changed to an All American eatery infusing East Coast ingredients with a West Coast flair. And a wealth of Happy Hour specials will be in store for us. Of course the staff still will be fabulous. And complimentary hotel parking will still be available once you purchase a drink and have the manager sign your valet card.

The Commentary is about coming together and connecting in conversation and shared experiences.

Happy Hour Specials will be offered from 7-9 p.m. during The Big Reveal.

Draft Beer $5
Select Wine by the Glass $6
Signature Cocktail of the Week $7
Flatbreads $9
Roasted Chicken Wings $7
Pretzel Bites $5
Artichoke, Spinach & Crab Fondue $6
Buffalo Chicken Meatballs $8

As Madonna said, “Come join the party…”

Mingle with fabulous LGBTQ+ folk and allies. TJ Flavell ( will be there to greet you. Bring your friends and meet new people from all over the world.
No cover.

Casual attire is fine.

You are welcome regardless of where you live. Guests from DC, Maryland, and Virginia often attend. If you are taking the Metro, the Ballston stop is only two blocks from the Westin. The South Elevator exit is closest.

Feel free to invite all your friends on Facebook! 

We hope you can make it! You may arrive at any time that’s convenient for you.
