This week is Social Media Week – a week of events held worldwide with a mission to bring social media to the real world!
The Houston marketing community is hosting its own events this week, and we were happy to attend Monday night’s happy hour at the beautiful Okra Charity Bar in Downtown Houston.

Cocktails for Charity at Okra!
Located downtown, Okra Charity Saloon donates its proceeds to a different local Houston charity or social cause each month.
For each drink purchased, you receive a ticket to vote for the charity to be supported that month. The wooden ballot boxes are lined up along the side wall, where you drop your ticket for your favorite.
The space is beautiful – it feels like a hidden spot tucked away in between the buildings of downtown Houston. The ceiling is a skylight of glass that is wide and open but somehow doesn’t take away from the cozy atmosphere.
It was a great event!
