I don't go to very many broker opens. It has to be close to home, and there has to be food or a reason for me to stop in. Just being honest.

FEED them and they are more likely to come. That means the lunch hour.

Water them and they may attend an after hours event that has an additional feature.

9 am would be the worst possible time.
