The UT Pan American Alumni Association and the newly remodeled Pepper's Bar & Grill on 10th Street in McAllen are launching a new "Thirsty Thursdays" program.
Former students will reunite over spirits and conversation to make new business contacts, rekindle old friendships and unwind a bit after a long day's work.
"Thirsty Thursdays" will be Sept. 11, from 5 to 7 p.m., and every second Thursday thereafter through the fall (Oct. 9, Nov. 13 and Dec. 11).
Free gifts and appetizer platters, courtesy of Pepper's, will be available for early arrivals.
"We're hoping to give our alumni something they've never had before - a short two-hour event that they can bring their spouses, friends and former classmates to, a social hour," said Jorge Solis, Alumni Association Social Committee chair.
"You don't need a coat and tie; we're not asking you for money; we're just giving you something that many of our alumni have long been asking for - an opportunity to meet in an open environment with their old friends."
