Dinner and a Night Out!

*** It's a great day for dinner and a night out!  See you tonight! ***

UPDATE #5: There are still 3 spots left, so you may claim a spot by arriving early with exact cash. Also, there are usually 4 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to join us. Make sure to come early with exact cash.

UPDATE #4: Just a reminder, gratuity is not included in the dinner. So please consider tipping our waiter what you normally would. It'll be a large group, and I'm sure s/he will welcome the show of appreciation.

UPDATE #3: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $40. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #2: We've been able to extend the early bird price! The first 30 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Thurs. Feb. 27th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $40.

UPDATE #1: There are 9 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $35 to $40 when the early bird spots are gone or before Fri. Feb. 21st (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Feb. 16th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot. I hope to see you there!

Let's get together for dinner and a night out!

I've made special arrangements with Cities for dinner and Eden for a night out! From 6:45 - 7:30pm we will check in and hang out at the bar. From 7:30 - 9pm, we will be seated and dine on fine American cuisine while getting to know each other. Our menu consists of:

Appetizer (choose one of the following)

• Petit Greens Salad (mixed greens / tomatoes / honey dijon dressing)

• Butternut Squash (cream / spices)

Entrée (choose one of the following)

• Atlantic Salmon (pan seared salmon filet / lemon caper sauce / mashed potatoes)

• Tomato Basil Linguini (capers / olives / tomato sauce / basil / parmesan)

• Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken (chicken breast / bell pepper sauce)

Beverage

• House Wine

• Beer

• Cocktail Drink (well)

• Soda

After dinner, we'll head on over to Eden (cover is normally $20, which is included in our ticket price) and let loose for a night of dancing, music, drinks, and fun! From 9 - 11pm, we'll have our own drink specials before the regular crowd gets there. After 11pm, we'll keep it going all night with the regular Friday night crowd! Please note gratuity is not included for dinner.

For those that haven't been there before, Cities offers international cuisine and American fine dining. Eden is dressed up with wood walls, waterfalls, and loads of green LEDs.  It looks like something out of Avatar. In fact, some of the plants were actually sourced from the same folks who sourced plants for the movie.

We've got an early bird special for this event of $35! The first 30 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Fri. Feb. 21st get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $40. Secure your slot by rsvping yes AND making payment!

Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment.  When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.

Come join us as we spend a great evening having dinner and a night out with others from our group!

Metro and Parking

Closest Metro is Farragut West (Orange / Blue Line), I suggest Metro / cabbing it.  I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

Dress Code

Dress code for the club includes includes no hats, no athletic gear, no baggy clothes, no t-shirts, no flip / flops, no timberlands, no ripped jeans, nice sneakers ok. Suggested attire for men: button up collar shirt with slacks, hard-soled dress shoes. Suggested attire for women: classy and sexy.

Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

Please follow the instructions below for making payment (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.

1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"

2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"

3. Click "Pay Now" at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person

4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button

5. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"

6. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Event Check-in

We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

Refund Policy & Ticket Resell

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and send the organizer an email through their Meetup profile (do not comment in the comment box) letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)
