Dinner and Dancing! In our OWN room: Parva Lounge!!

Hi guys!!!

This is GREAT!! I went over to Parva Lounge tonight, in search of a venue for our event June 6th. We'll be there at 7 PM. It's walking distance from the Bethesda Metro (red line). The manager was so wonderful with me! We sat for a long time, to work out something special JUST FOR US!!! Please do your best to show up on time...It starts at 6:45, but if you HAVE to come late, that's fine...

Usually, to get the lounge upstairs, you need to reserve a whole catered buffet, pay a large amount up front, and have at least 40 or more people. For US, we can order a la carte (anything we want off the menu), and have the WHOLE LOUNGE upstairs, even if we have as low as 20 people. OF COURSE, we'll get many more guests though!! And we can have 20-80. :)  The manager was SO NICE to do this for me!! I told him that we don't need them to buy any special tablecloths, or anything else fancy. This ALSO helped us secure the room without the big cost. :)) It looks pretty up there, as it is!! Even without any fancy dressings (see the pic enclosed).

We'll have the room from 6:45-10:15 or so for just us, then the room is open to the public for dancing. That's when others can join us, too. Usually their music is music in Spanish. BUT, for FRIDAY NIGHTS, it's music from everywhere...We can dance! :)

See you guys there! It's right by the metro. :))

    OMG, they were SO GREAT about respecting my idea of having us pay right after we ordered!! THIS WAY, we didn't have a really long bill for all of us at the end. It made it go so smoothly! I was really glad to have the whole room to ourselves for so long. :) It was really comfortable and fun. Everyone in the group is so nice. :) I really liked Assetou's dance when we sang to her..hehe...And a happy birthday to Peter was well.

    Wahida, believe it or not, some of us are still there. I can't believe I made it this long myself. It's 12 am. Haha

    June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    They have a huge space and we can dance at any time!!! Even before the place opens to the public. :-)

    It's so nice here!!!! They are great to let us have this space

    Some say they also didn't read the walking directions from the metro: 1) Go up the escalators when leaving the metro...
    2)Take the left, right on that street you'll be standing on. It's Old Georgetown Rd (187). If you want, you can stay on the brick sidewalk you'll be on, or you can already cross the street before taking that left, as you'll have to take a right eventually (as you'll see below) and cross the street then if you choose to wait to do so.
    Cross the next street which is Commerce La. on the right, & Edgemoor La. on the left...
    3)Take a RIGHT at the traffic light: Woodmont Ave. If you haven't crossed the street yet, you cross the street to take this right, otherwise just cross the street. :) It'll probably be there in like .2 mi. after starting on Old Georgetown...
    4)Cross Norfolk at the next traffic light. Parva will be on the LEFT. The sign will be written in white, with a brown background, ON the top floor of the white building which is Parva.

  • Noonie

    Woops, since I'm getting questions on the parking, I'll post here again, and then go...As I said in that long and detailed email, the parking that I saw that is 80 cents an hour is a GARAGE...IT's free after 12...There are MANY...Woodmont Triangle is the one that is on Woodmont BY Norfolk...It's the closest to the place...I wrote in that email to go an upper level and not park on the ground floor, if it has a sign that it's just for 2 hours, if you plan to stay longer...The following is a website of different garages in Bethesda, in case this one is full: http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/DOT-Parking/bethesda/bethesda-parking-garage.htm
    ALSO, it'll tell U in the MACHINE how much you owe, you'd stick your ticket/card in when you leave...It takes CREDIT CARD, CASH, OR COINS. METERS on the street are likely more expensive: $2 per hour UNTIL 10 PM, and you'd have to pay TILL THEN...Make sure you have COINS if you think you'll be parking on the street and/or by a meter.

    June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    I'm going there early now, to check out the place and the set up! See you soon! It'll be fun!!!! I'm still going! hahaha...I will EVEN try to stay for the dancing as it's SO GREAT THAT WE have our own room!!!!!!! See ya there! :)

    June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    It's probably best to park at a parking garage that is like the one I mentioned in the email: Woodmont Triangle. As .80 an hour is cheap, especially since if you leave after midnight, it's free! The most they take is $12, but we won't even come CLOSE to paying that much, as that's for a person who is there for hours and hours...You'll likely be paying anywhere from 0 dollars to 4.50! That's it. :)) See you guys soon!!! It'll be so much fun!!!

    June 6, 2014

  • Brian

    I wanted to hang with everyone- but it didn't work out. I hope to try for the next get-together. Please enjoy your evening!

    June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    Wahida, thanks for letting us know you can't make it...We'll miss you...I'm glad I get to see you at the next meetup after this. :)

    June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    I'll do my best to not have to leave early...I've still been so, so tired from something I was given 3 times a day from something...Don't worry, I *should* still be there for the dinner part, and to greet everyone before the dancing starts...I also have been taking long naps at the nurse's office at the school where I"m working! It should help...If I do have to leave early, I know you guys will all be cool about it, and I was happy to set this all up. So if I leave early, I'll still be with you, in spirit. :)) I promise to do my best to stay awake and stay out long...

    June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    Luis, it's still ok to come at 10:30, but I just can't promise I'll still be there, I meant...I want to be able to stay out, I just don't know if I can...There surely should be others there at that time though, but it won't just be our group anymore...

    1 · June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    Ok, Zeliha! Thanks for your comment. Now it makes sense! Yes, I know your friend. :) I remember dancing with you, Mahmudul, the new Keith, and my friend. :)) At that great place outdoors Michael told us about! Very fun! Special thanks to MH for taking us there...We hope to see you tonight. If you can't go, then we can have fun again another time. :)

    June 6, 2014

  • Noonie

    Zeliha, sorry but I'm not understanding your comment. :) You said you "can" join us late, then you said you will "try" to join us...Does this mean that you "probably can't," you mean...? We'll understand, either way...Just let me know. :) Thanks!

    June 6, 2014

    • zeliha

      :)) I need learn English well. I have to work tonight if my work finish early I can come. If is not finish early I can not come but today my friend is coming you know her. She came last meetup. I hope see you tonight

      June 6, 2014

  • zeliha

    Hey! I am sory I can join you late because I have to work. I lust learn. I will try join you.

    June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    The email went through. :) So it's in your inbox. It says all the important info. Please all read it for everything you need to know! Please also remember to bring the $5, cheapo membership for the year (unless you already paid it this year! Then, you don't need to!)...I'm going back to bed. I'm healing from something, long story. So if I sleep early, then hopefully I'll feel all better by tomorrow. :) It should work that I will...Hugs..

    June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    I just sent out a very important email, giving all the info. about tomorrow: Including parking, walking, and everything, everything! I see now that it's taking time for it to arrive to us...I hope it went through as that was a lot of work to write it. :))

    June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    Hi guys, are any of your interested in having me change the music and dancing part to start earlier? At 10 Pm? That's the time that they usually have it, yet they put it at 10:30, special for us...The manager is really good at letting me choose. :) There will likely be a DJ, and it will be open to the public at that time...I say we tell him 10:15, as that's a compromise between 10 and 10:30. :) How does that sound? hehe

    June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    Jaime, thanks for letting us know you can't make it anymore. We hope to see you another time...

    June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    Our meetup is on a huge military attack, D-Day..hahaha, funny that we're celebrating D-day..Odd! Thank you all for signing up...See you soon...I hope I answered many questions: I wrote an email that it's a regular meetup, and that it's ok if many people don't know the bday person, or the person going away, as this meetup is open to the public, and will feel like a regular meetup: So we are celebrating EACH AND EVERY ONE Of you! Not particularly any one person!...I might not be able to stay for the dancing, but I'll try...I"ve been very tired, from taking so many meds to help stop an infection from spreading...I'm off of them, but still fall asleep everywhere...I'll do my best to feel better by tomorrow. :)

    1 · June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    Sure Zeliha! You can bring a guest! You can even bring 2, heheh...I'll RSVP you with a guest, and you can change it if you bring another one, or if just one, etc.

    June 5, 2014

  • zeliha

    Hi Noonie . Cani bring one more guest?

    June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    Mr. P., that's fine. :) See you soon! I think we should have a good number by 7 or so, so it's ok if some of you are late. :) Hari, thanks for the nice comments about our group! You look familiar, do I know you from somewhere (hahaha)? Luis, I'll TRY to stay out late, but if I do I might be asleep in front of everyone...Will do my best though...If you really are coming at 10:30 though, then you'll see that it's not a meetup anymore, as that time is more flexible and open to the public...It's when the music is on and I might not be available to reach at that time...

    June 5, 2014

  • Mr. P

    Will be late.

    June 5, 2014

  • Noonie

    Luis, if you come at 10:30, it's up to you but I likely won't be there then, lol...It might be very difficult for me to stay out late, due to what I wrote below...But, please feel free to come at that time if it's something that you want to do and works for your schedule. The meetup is for dinner, if people stay there past then, it's cool but the official "meetup" is for the times that we have the room to ourselves...

    June 5, 2014

  • Luis

    I wont be able to make it until 10:30pm lol just to dance if thats okay

    June 4, 2014

  • Noonie

    Hi guys, I'm looking forward to meeting you all. I have to tell you that since being given pills Friday for an inflamed ear from a piercing, I have been pretty out of it...I had to go to urgent care when blood came out of my piercing and my ear got super big..hahaha, gross...So the doc put me on a lot of meds, so that the infection wouldn't spread...The ear is finally smaller, after she cut the earring out and let the hole close...yet I'm still super out of it from the meds while off of them even! If I still feel out of it Friday, I'll still be there! I just wouldn't stay late...However, usually I am going around and talking to every single person, without leaving a single person out...If I don't walk up to every person individually like usual, don't take it personally if I don't talk a lot to each of you, it'll be only because I'm not myself and out of it from this healing from this piercing. :)...:)) Thanks! See you soon..

    June 4, 2014

  • Noonie

    So as long as you come anywhere between 6:45 and 8:45, you're fine! :) We just hope to get as many people possible by the 6:45-7 time slot. :)) We need a big group by then, and we should be fine. :))

    June 4, 2014

  • Noonie

    Update: I posted this meetup now for 6:45, so that people can try their best to arrive at that time, or by 7...HOWEVER, you CAN come later IF YOU NEED TO...sure....So, anyway, we'll try to get as many people at the start time as we can...Thanks! :)

    June 4, 2014

  • Noonie

    Jenny, that is so cool of U to ask. I really appreciate that. Sorry that I didn't reply till now, but I've been wiped out after being given something after getting sick this weekend. I should be fine by Friday, but I might not be able to stay for the dancing part. I'll let you guys know...As for the cover for anything, I'll likely have a deposit I need to put down today that I get back so then I don't need help with that. As for preparations, I'm going to go visit the place again, when I feel better. Just so that I can give exact walking directions and see a couple things about parking. I wouldn't need any help with that, but it's so very nice that you asked!!!! As for the restaurant's decorations, because we've gotten the room special for free, they aren't decorating it with fancy tablecloths or anything at all, it'll be bare, but if you see the picture on this site, it's so pretty, the way it is!!! It'll look great. :)

    June 4, 2014

    Is there any help that you need in preparations?

    Sure Zaliha, if 8:30 is the earliest you can make it, that's fine. :-) We have the room to ourselves only till 10:30, so if everyone comes at their earliest, that's great.

      But I can come around 8.30. Is it possible?

      June 2, 2014

  • Noonie

    Hi guys, the manager never saw my text, so after calling him a couple times I finally got him. :) I told him of my idea to have people pay right after they order, so that we won't have this long bill right after the meal...He said that he'll do that special for us. :) I'm not sure if this means they can do one person per check, but I'm doing my best to get them to do everything we can to make it easiest as possible...If it doesn't work out the way we want, you can't say I didn't try! But for now, it does seem like we can have it easier, and pay right after we order (so that it's not all one big bill at the end). :) This may mean that they can have a person at a time pay, but it also might mean that they'll do a few at a time (still better than one big bill for 40 people like they thought to do before!)...:)

    June 2, 2014

  • Noonie

    Hi guys, the manager didn't have time to answer me yet on whether or not we can pre-pay our bills (so that we pay right after we order). He had said that we'll have one long bill for all of us, and I'm trying to get out of that, by making it easier for both them and us, by paying right after every 5 have their order or something...The thing is, if people come at different times, this way is better...

    June 2, 2014

  • Noonie

    Wow, they are bending all kinds of rules for me at this restaurant. :) It's nice!!! So, the latest is that since we have the lounge all to ourselves till 10:30 PM, if I make it earlier at 6:30 PM, it's OK if some people don't show up till 7, or 7:30 even, etc...BUT, we don't have separate checks, since they usually have a set menu for a party of our size, and they have let us order a la carte (off the menu, choosing whatever we want)...I am contacting the manager to see if we can pay up front, right after we order, so that they can bend the rules even further, and give us separate checks as paying up front would make it easier. :) I'll let you know what he says. :)

    June 1, 2014

  • Noonie

    As long as people try to come as early as they can, it should be fine. :) I'll call up and ask the manager if it's ok if like 5 people come late...:)) hope so!

    May 31, 2014

    • Noonie

      He said it's fine. :)

      June 1, 2014

  • Noonie

    Hi guys! Good news! I got a really nice text from the manager tonight, and he's been really laid back if a few people need to come late. :) He said it's fine. Then they are being a lot more laid back then Lauriol. As for Lauriol, we had to all be there exactly on time, otherwise we'd lose the reservation and there'd be a fee...There still may be a fee for me to put down for this room here, but I'll get it back. So I don't mind making a deposit for the group. :) I might make our reservation a little earlier than 7, knowing now that it's ok for people to come later...This way, we have the room for a longer time, before it opens up to the public for the dancing...I'll let you know what I decide...Thanks. :)
