Nava PBC, the startup that grew out of the 2013 HealthCare.gov rescue mission, wants to get D.C.’s civic tech community together for a drink.

The company aims to organize an every-other-month happy hour in D.C. (and perhaps beyond, down the road). The first such event (though Nava has done less-formal events in the past) is set for Feb. 27.


“It’s a way to foster conversation, collaboration and generate new ideas,” Alisha Ramos, a designer at Nava, told Technical.ly in an email. “Also, to make new friends and meet new people.”

We endorse.

The happy hour will be held at District Distilling on U Street, and so it doubles nicely as a way to check out one of the city’s new distillery/bar combos. The newly opened bar serves drinks made with spirits distilled on site.
