Join me at The Loring Pasta Bar! Let's meet for a drink between 9:30-10 in the bar. Tables are cleared at 10 pm and music (DJ) starts around 10:30. A few friends from another meetup may join us but that won't impact our numbers. Note that there is a $10 cover charge.
I have dinner plans with another Meetup group --otherwise I'd try to coordinate dinner & dancing (I'll aim to do just that at Cafe Havana or ??? in December). The food at The Loring Pasta Bar is fabulous, so consider gathering some other members for dinner beforehand.
Please consider this an "experiment." The venue has been a bit challenging to work with but I'm willing to give it a try... They do not accept reservations but I'll be there early enough to secure a large table in the bar area for 6-8 people. We'll grab a nearby booth or two if needed. Look for the Meeup table tent!
