Welcome back to the Happy Hour!
The Bay Area is in for some changes following the 2020 election and the uptake in COVID-19 cases, and hosts Malakai and shaylyn are here to share some positive stories you may have missed these past two weeks. This week they speak with Golden Gate Xpress Arts and Entertainment editor Paul Kelly about his work covering the youngest and first openly LGBTQ+ city council member for South San Francisco, James Coleman.
And they have a new cocktail to keep you warm during this holiday season. Rate and review if you want a tailor-made cocktail too! Listen anywhere you get your podcasts, and find us on Instagram @thhpodcast and on Twitter @happyhournews. Also, the recipe for this week’s tailor-made cocktail can be found here.
