Around Arlingtons 6th Birthday Party @Dawns - Celebrating 6 Years & 850 Events

  • Apr 6, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Can you believe we've been doing this for SIX YEARS? Yes, Around Arlington was founded on April 1, 2007! We've been averaging 135 events per year, or 2-3 per week. We're still having fun with 1400+ members!

BIRTHDAY PARTY
Join us to celebrate with FOOD, FRIENDS & FUN! Come chill with us for the evening. The environment is casual, so feel free to arrive later if that suits your schedule better. We eat and drink and talk awhile and then we might play some games.

POT LUCK/BYOB
It's a pot luck/BYOB kinda thing. Finger foods work really well, but we DO have forks too! If you know what you are bringing, it is helpful if you put it in your RSVP. But we like pleasant surprises too! Extra ice and coolers always appreciated.

ADDRESS
Feel free to bring a friend, a game, and a snack to share for this pot luck event. I will email my address and cell number the day before the event to only YES RSVPs. Address is only emailed to YES RSVPs whom I have MET (by now I've met about 700 of ya'll - "Active Members"). It's a safety thing - thanks for understanding!

    I was not aware this event is for SELECTED only. Sorry, I am very busy during the entire week and I hope this Saturday event is the one I could join. Next time please do not send me an event if I would not qualify...

      Invites are sent to everyone on the email list. There is no way to exclude anyone from those invites from the organizer's end. You may choose to not receive emails from this group by going to your settings. The ONLY requirement we have in this group is that we meet you PRIOR to allowing strangers into our homes. We very seldom have home parties, so there are plenty of opportunities to meet us at other events.

      2 · April 6, 2013

    • Dawn

      Jolanta - there are several HUNDRED members who we've met in this group. When you refer to SELECTED folks, it's clear you haven't taken the time to READ the event description or our policy. I'm sure you wouildn't want to provide your address to everyone who asks you for it over the internet!

    As always, email with home address was mailed one day before the event to 'Active Members' who RSVPd Yes. We don't email the address to folks we've never met, so those folks were removed from the event before the address went out. It's a safety thing, thanks for understanding!

    April 5, 2013
