I had a great time, there were some super fun and respectful guys. It hurts that the drink goes up very quickly and they may tell you that you have to go out for some air as has happened with some. I had a great time, I arrived late but after some time they answered me and I was able to meet up with the group. What I don't know is how to have the photos, I don't think it will come out well in the photos but I would like to see them. I would repeat the experience in other neighborhoods. Conor is amazing, you can see the good energy, nice and respectful guy. I would like to have the photos from tonight . Thank you very much for the experience. xoxo
