    Sorry for the last minuts change, cant make it

  • Noonie

    Hi guys, see you soon...This meetup has been closed now to new RSVP's because this is at a member's house and both he and his roommate will have guests, in addition to us and all of our guests. Many people not listed as going are texting/calling/emailing me asking for the hosts' address but I have not given it to them because people not going need to understand that the RSVP's have been closed down...If it were your house, you also wouldn't want 100's of people...So, thank you for understanding....

    February 9, 2013

  • leninn t.

    I'm sorry guys I'm not going to be able to go I didn't find anyone who could work for me tomorrow night. Sorry if I wait until last moment but I had the hope that I was going to make it. I was thinking to make sangria with tequila for you guys but i can always make it next time Noonie organice an other party. Looking forward to meet you guys next time:)

    February 9, 2013

  • Noonie

    Morteza, that is really sweet of you. I know that there is some sort of awesome Iranian eggplant. :) I'm not sure if many people will still bring desserts, but I can understand you! It might be that way...We'll see...:) See you soon!

    February 8, 2013

  • Morteza

    As I think there are a lot types of desserts at party, I will bring an Iranian side dish instead of an Iranian dessert. I will bring beer, too. I am worry about Noonie to take care of the party and bunch of massages!!

    February 7, 2013

  • Noonie

    Oh, Mert I see that were able to sign up...In that case, you should have gotten the address but I can send it again...No problem at all!! :)

    February 7, 2013

  • Noonie

    Mert, the address can't be posted here as this is at a person's private home. I DID send the address multiple times to people who were able to RSVP for the event...Please email me at: [masked]
    Thanks so much!

    February 7, 2013

  • Noonie

    That sounds great, Jason. Sounds like from emails I'm getting that many people will bring salad so we will have many vegetarian salads but I'm looking forward to see your veggie dish, too. :) Thanks so much!!!! See ya soon!!!

    February 7, 2013

  • Jason

    I will bring something vegetarian for Peter and others

    Hi Everyone, I planto bring a salad and some kind of bread to the party. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

  • Noonie

    Guess what?? :) This turns out to also be a bit of a Valentine's Day party, as I couldn't resist buying a Valentine's Day sign, napkins, and a table cloth (including heart shaped bowls). :) Regan also said she wants to bring Valentine's Day cupcakes, and Yuri will bring cake...We have a couple spots opening up now, if more people want to come..

    February 6, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi guys, somehow the meetup website took away what the people who actually posted what they were bringing wrote...(including what I wrote..hehehe...So I will email what I know so far of what is being brought....If you haven't said what you are bringing, then please let me know when you know...Gracias

    February 6, 2013

    • Paul

      Meetup.com announced changes today to how rsvp comments are displayed. It's not clear how existing events would be affected. I can forward you the email if you didn't get it.

      February 6, 2013

    • Noonie

      Hey Paul! :) Yeah, I just saw that email myself, now, at 9:40 PM..hehe. :) Thanks for your awesome comment! By the way, are you joining us?

    I will bring Belorussian Pancakes.

    1 · February 6, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thanks Meredith, if there will be the amount of people going listed (plus some of the hosts other friends), then the environment will be more of a loud party, and less about ESL ice breakers..That's why I changed it from the original idea...However, feel free to bring that game in addition to your food, just in case...Up to you, but I'm not sure it will be a setting for it..We'll see when we are there..

    February 5, 2013

    I will bring Kentucky Fried Chicken! This sounds like an exciting party!

    February 5, 2013

    I can also bring apples to apples to play if people want. It's a very fun game or some ice breaker games. I teach ice breaker games during outdoor education.

    February 5, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thank you, Guillermina, for posting what you will bring. :) I posted in my RSVP what I am planning to bring. This might change as it depends on a couple of things. If the food for me changes, I will change my RSVP to have the final food, accordingly.

    1 · February 5, 2013

  • Guillermina

    I will bring an Argentinean shepherd pie which is a bit different from the Irish one.I will also bring something to drink.I am soo much excited to attend this multicultural event! C ya all.... :)

    1 · February 5, 2013

  • Noonie

    Morteza, thank you so much for listening and listing what you will bring! That was also very nice of you to volunteer to add bread or beer to it. I will find out which one would be good. I will also change my RSVP to how what I will bring (by Tuesday night. :))

    February 4, 2013

  • Ricardo g.

    Have fun!

    February 4, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi again, guys! When you have figured out what you will bring, please post it in your RSVP. For example, for another multicultural potluck meetup, someone brought "Peruvian chicken," someone else brought a turkish dessert, and someone esle brought french bread with french cheese, etc. etc...See you soon!!! :)

    Hi guys, the host is so incredibly awesome to allow such a huge amount sign up (there are many of his friends going, and with that number and those signed up, there might be 70 going). So thank you to those of you who are so fantastic and amazing about understanding that if you aren't signed up, that you can just go to OTHER, FUTURE meetups...:) Happy Superbowl Day!

    Please leave shoes at the door. I will post out reminders of this, closer to the event (and also include this in an email).

    1 · January 29, 2013

    • boyman

      I am just teasing you. I take of shoes at my house too

      January 31, 2013

    • Noonie

      Yes, I got it that it was a joke. Still, since he will have so so many people in his house, he (understandably) would rather not have people joke about taking off the shoes. :) See you there!

      January 31, 2013

  • Cheffer W.

    How many times did you guys have meeting every month?

    January 22, 2013

  • Noonie

    This isn't going to be the multicultural talent show that we were going to have before, but rather a party to mingle and get to know people (without a conversation structure like we will have at a later party). Everyone is required to bring a dish to share (preferrably an "international" one, if you can... :)) No shoes in the house so leave your shoes at the door. Feel free to bring music f rom around the world. I will definitely bring a couple of CDs.

    1 · January 22, 2013

  • Noonie

    We will meet at the HOUSE. The reason I didn't post the address is because I never do when it is a private residence. Instead, I email the info. to yes RSVP's. If you don't have a way to get to the house in Silver Spring, let me know but for this type of meetup, it is up to the the member to arrange carpool. STILL, I can try to help put you in a car, as I am already driving 2 members who need rides...:)

    January 21, 2013

  • Noonie

    I will email out directions to yes RSVP's later on as it is at a private residence so it's best not to post all the info. on here now. It is not far from the Forest Glen Metro but you need to either drive or be in a driver's car to get there...

    January 16, 2013

  • Cheffer W.

    where it will take place in silver spring?

    January 16, 2013

  • Mr. P

    Love it. I would like to join but won't be able to know whether or not I can until last minute. Work is taking over my social life lately. Hopefully, a spot is available for me at the closer date.

    January 16, 2013

  • Morteza

    At first special thanks for Peter, I would bring a dish of Iranian dessert. Also, I could bring some bread or beer if you want.

    January 16, 2013

  • Noonie

    This will now be at a member's residence in Silver Spring, MD. I will email out the address and directions later, to yes RSVP's. It is not right by a metro (though the closest metro I believe is Forest Glen), so carpooling needs to be arranged among members. If this changes your ability to go, then please change your RSVP accordingly.

    January 15, 2013

  • Noonie

    Yes.

    January 11, 2013

  • boyman

    Is my RSVP confirmed? I look forward to this event
