Big Brothers Big Sisters Young Professionals’ Holiday Happy Hour was a smash

Tuesday night’s Holiday Happy Hour on Ice was a great success.

More than 130 young Twin Citians joined Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Young Professionals Group (BBBS YPG) for a night of networking, skating and ugly holiday sweaters at the Depot in downtown Minneapolis.

The crowd spent the night mingling and skating laps around the rink. “Twin Cities Live” hosts, John Hanson and Elizabeth Ries, and Emily Engberg were on-hand to judge all the outlandish holiday getups and pick their favorites.
