OVConnect Traveling Happy Hour

We’ll be visiting a new location each month. Plus, a bonus food and/or drink special will be featured at each spot.

OVConnect members receive a free bonus each month.


Wheeling Young Preservationists Happy Hour
Last Thursday of each month
River City – 5:30pm


St. Paddy’s Pub Run
Friday, March 17th – 5:30pm


As busy professionals, we’re always on the go.  In this case, we’re on the go even as we polish off our favorite pint!

Throw your running shoes on and join us for our tribute to St. Patrick.  We’ll split off into groups (or “teams”, as the competitiveness increases) and jog to different watering holes throughout downtown Wheeling for a quick “breather” (also known as a pint).  Once we’ve hit all three spots, we’ll congregate together for appetizers, and good old fashioned networking.



Zoo Brew
Saturday, June 25, 2016
Oglebay Good Zoo

Members get together to enjoy a wide variety of brews while networking at Oglebay's Good Zoo.

That’s right.  Our most popular event combining furry animals and delicious beer is returning once again to the Good Zoo at Oglebay!  This limited-space event always sells out, and always delivers the fun thanks to many amazing libations to sample from national and local/home brewers.  As Homer Simpson once said, “Mmmm, beer networking.”
