DRINKS and DANCE @ Q43

  • Jan 10, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Here it is… the final update email from me (I hope so anyway, before you add me to your spam list)

PLEASE READ IT : o) THANKS

We are joined at this meetup by many new faces, some of which will arrive alone and a lot of guests/future members too.

Members please understand that ultimately YOU are responsible for your guests, their enjoyment and I will add their conduct! Enough said.

DUBAI is one big melting pot of cultures and our group reflects that. As with all cities, it is easy to get lost and lonely in this metropolis. Please help make everyone feel welcome. 

That is why we are all here and in doing so we can ensure that everyone has an enjoyable night.The hosts will be busy introducing people, however If you see someone looking a little lost then go over and introduce yourself and introduce them to your friends.

You can visit the venue here

DRESS CODE - Smart casual, but avoid trainers, sandals and shorts.

NEWBIES: If this is your first meetup then do please try and arrive between 7 and 7.30. This will help us to help you meet your new friends.  

We have worked hard to bring you a great night, based on the fact that we know everyone will turn up… please don’t be a no show!



ADDED VALUE – 25% DISCOUNT

If you want to sample the menu then here is your chance. As an added bonus we have been able to negotiate an exclusive whopping discount of 25% on any bar food ordered… NICE …

IT’S A KILLER – KING OR QUEEN

Early Evening and Just for Fun (and because we have free use of the pool table so its rude not too) we are going to be playing a POOL game called killer on a first come first served basis. The rules are simple and you do not have to be a great player to enjoy the fun. The game will kick off at 7.30 and is restricted to 20.

Paul ‘Hurricane’ Ellis will be running the tournament - The winner will be crowned the Killer King or Queen for 2014 :o)

ON ARRIVAL

Please check in at the front desk in the venue (when you exit the lift not the lobby). The full list will be there. Members will receive their own wrist band and those for their guest if they have booked. 

This wristband is important as without it you will not benefit from the discounted drinks and food from 7 till 10. The drinks offer will include House Red, White and Rose wine along with all House pours plus mixer (vodka, gin, rum, whisky) and bottled beers, Heineken, Bud and Tiger, all at AED 30 per drink.

We have our own bar in the RUSSIAN STANDARD ROOM, but you can now use your wristband to buy drinks at any of the bars which should ensure quick service. The venue is big, so please make your way back to all your friends.

Those who arrive between 7 and 8 will be invited to fill out a card. A draw will take place later in the evening for FREE BRUNCH TICKETS (another great bonus) but as they say 

                                     ”You have to be in it to win it.”

And that’s it… all you have to do is enjoy yourself, which should not be too difficult. 

Laurence 

The 3 main numbers to remember are as follows:

Me: Laurence:[masked]

Christine:[masked]

Dominic:[masked]

Other hosts include the beautiful Nalini and Daniella and the not so aesthetically pleasing Dhiren and Christian .... feel lost? Find a host and get back on track !


PLEASE REMEMBER- WE LOVE OUR MEMBERS AND DON'T WANT TO LOSE ANY - REMEMBER WHERE YOU ARE WHEN Y0U FINALLY HEAD HOME - IF YOU ARE DRINKING, DO NOT DRIVE - IF WE THINK THIS IS YOUR INTENTION WE WILL STEAL YOUR KEYS AND SELL YOUR CAR FOR CHARITY !!!!

    A big round of applause 2 Laurence 4 putting this 2gether (1st rounds on me my friend). Our 1st major event[masked] n its gonna b freakin awesum!!! This is ur 24hr event reminder. If u cannot make it 2morrow, PLEASE UPDATE UR RSVP. We have ppl wait listed here who would like 2 attend. On behalf of Raj, Christine, Dhiren, Laurence, Daniella, Rima, Nalini, Christian n Moi (me myself n I), thank you n we look forward to meeting u all 2morrow. Party on ppl!!!

    7 · January 9, 2014

  • laurence

    Just to be clear (rather than answering zillions of private messages)


    * Waiting lists are for MEMBERS ONLY. You cannot use the waiting list to increase your guests. * The waiting list is managed by me. I take into account both the demographics on the night, the period of membership, and an individuals track record for no shows (this is why no shows are taken seriously, it costs others a place potentially.) No power trips
    No favoritism
    No favors. * IF (when) the venue confirms that we can increase then MEMBERS on the wait list will be added manually.

    I am confident that by the end of the day we can get everybody on board.

    Now we're talking guys!! One of the best venues at the moment and as an active realtor, without a doubt the best panaromic views of this cities iconic projects (think palm, atlantis and both the Burj's - Khalifa and Al Arab). The nights going to be epic!
