Enjoy a fun social! Members of several local LGBT groups are meeting on Friday, May 3 from 6-8 p.m. at the fabulous Kora Restaurant in Crystal City. It's not Emerald City, but close. Kora Restaurant features a blend of contemporary Italian food and a modern elegance. The restaurant is conveniently located within walking distance to the Crystal City Metro station (via the indoor Crystal City Underground) and free parking is located right around the corner.
At the social between 6-8 p.m., you'll be greeted by Go Gay DC Leader TJ Flavell. Ask for the happy hour specials. Please note that this is a cash bar on an individual basis, expressly not a group tab. ;-)
For excitement, look forward to meeting and mingling with the men and women of other local LGBT groups, including the Arlington Gay & Lesbian Alliance (www.agla.org); Alexandria Gay and Lesbian Community Association (www.aglca.org), Fairfax Pride (www.FairfaxPride.com), GoGayDC (www.gogaydc.org), GayDigerati (www.gaydigerati.org) , and NoVA Gay & Lesbian Professionals (www.meetup.com/novaglp ); several are being invited to mix it up.
