SAN JOSE -- It's the Holidays and a perfect time for you to get to know the media that covers your community.

On Dec. 18, please join Bert Robinson, Bay Area News Group Managing Editor for Content, and Martin G. Reynolds, Senior Editor for Community Engagement, for an informal names-to-faces gathering.

The "Engagement Happy Hour" event runs 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and will be held in San Jose at the Hedley Club inside the Hotel De Anza, 233 West Santa Clara St.

Bring your questions and comments about the San Jose Mercury News and other BANG publications.

This is no-host bar, but light snacks will be served.

The event is part of the news group's ongoing community engagement campaign intended to better connect with the community. Similar happy hour events have been held in Oakland and Walnut Creek.
