….well that was weird huh? Greetings from Vax town Hard French . Did you get yours? We’re so excited to hug you (masked and with consent of course) again!
The incredible, RESILIENT and magical staff of El Rio asked us to help warm up the patio for them and seeing as how we’ve mastered all breads, cooked every cookbook, become Zoom wizards, beat back Facism, and taken down the honey bear guy we figured all thats left is to French with you again. So we’re easing into the moment with a very special, very safe, very hard french set of sit down only happy hours on Saturday May 15th. Break out your best reunion look and prepare to bring that Hard French energy baby! Lets be weird.

French Safer Baby
Partying smart is hot and encouraged at Hard French. If you feel unsafe or see something is off — do not hesitate to contact a HF crew member, our door person, or venue security. Some ways we party safer:
* By not tolerating hate/shaming of any kind at our events. The safety of QTPOC will always be our main priority.
* Practicing consent. Do not touch anyone without their permission. “But I’m gay” or “I’m really drunk” are not excuses, you will be kicked out.
* Minding our primos. If your buddy is a mess, help them out. If you see someone is alone and needs help, let us know.
* Lastly. We love yr fancy forward fashion ways – but if your first inclination is to grab your Afro wig- please don’t come to this event.
