What's a better way to welcome new members to the meetup than going to a Ya Hala (Welcome in Arabic :) Restaurant. This restaurant is great: Delicious Mediterranean / Arabic food, Belly Dancing, and live DJ. They also have a bar that offers a wide selection of drinks.
Belly Dancing starts around 9 pm. That's why I scheduled the meetup from 8:00 - 11pm.
The main entrees are reasonably priced between $8-$15. The MOST and only expensive dish (lamb shops) is $20.
This meetup is also great for vegetarian. They have a wide selection to choose from: for example the appetizers: Hummous, Falafel, Tabouleh, and Baba ghanush...For meat lovers, I would suggest the Kibbeh, Shawerma (gyro), and beef or chicken Kabob. If you are not impressed yet...check out their dessert menu (Baklava, Kenafa, Harisah, and more..) I tried their Kenafa and it was delicious!
The restaurant is right of St. Charles Rock Road and highway 270. Here is Google maps link:

I added few photos I took on the group page of the restaurant on the meetup page under Ya Hala Restaurant:
In short, I thinks this is going to be an awesome meetup experience :)
See you there!
Important Note:I know meetup took the "maybe" option from RSVP. If you are not sure if you are going to attend please add a "maybe" in the comment section of your RSVP. Please make sure to CONFIRM your RSVP. I have to make a reservation with the restaurant and I don't appreciate no-shows or people who change their reservation in the last minute.
