Announcing a new Meetup for the Washington, DC Lithuanian Language and Culture Meetup!

What: Monthly Lithuanian Happy Hour And Dinner!

When: Wednesday, September 22,[masked]:30 PM Happy Hour, 7:00 PM Dinner

Price: $1.00 per person suggested donation to pay for Meetup costs

Where: Cafe Assorti
1800 Wilson Blvd
Arlington, VA 22201

As promised, we are scheduling another in our series of Lithuanian Happy Hours and Dinners, this time right across the Potomac River in Rosslyn, Virginia!

For September we are going to try a new restaurant recommended by Gytis for food, drinks and ambiance - Cafe Assorti!

Cafe Assorti
1800 Wilson Blvd
Arlington, VA 22201


Happy Hour - 6:30P
Dinner - 7:00P

Cafe Assorti is a fast-casual restaurant featuring homemade-style food from European, Russian and Kazakh cuisines.

Happy Hour is from 4P to 7:30P (so feel free to come a bit earlier!) Beer and wine will be half off and they have special deals on their daily pirozhki selection.

Bonus: Cafe Assorti has a Russian-style Happy Hour on Wednesdays where they offer a free Russian snack platter with the order of "strong liquor" - think vodka!

Cafe Assorti is an easy ten minute walk from the Rosslyn METRO Station (METRO BLUE and ORANGE Lines.) Once you exit the station take a LEFT (SOUTH) on Fort Myer Drive, then turn immediately RIGHT (WEST) on Wilson Boulevard (a busy commercial street.) Continue to walk WEST (away from Washington, DC) and look for the very large 1800 Wilson Boulevard Street sign on the left side of the street.

Parking is available behind the white building right next to the restaurant. The entrance to the parking lot is actually between two white residential looking commercial buildings, one has signs for the Medical Service Corporation and the other is Fashion Dreams Tailoring.

Please join us with ideas for events, locations for happy hours/dinners and your ideas on how the Lithuanian and Language and Culture Meetup can best provide a fun and cultural schedule for Lithuanians and all persons interested in Lithuanian language and culture in the Washington metropolitan area!

Also, don't forget the huge Euro Night! event on Friday, September 17th! This is truly a fun event at the French Embassy with a large crowd coming to enjoy the food, drinks and music offered by all of the European Embassies in Washington, DC. The event starts at 6:30P and we will meet at the Lithuanian Embassy booth at 7:30P!

Please consider making a voluntary donation of $1.00 per event toward the maintenance of this group. You can make a payment by using either the PayPal or Amazon payment links here, or with a one dollar cash payment directly to the event host. Contributions are used to pay the Meetup hosting fees; any extra will be used to defray the cost of a future event like a Christmas party or Summer picnic.

Please note that the happy hour scheduled for September 9 at the Capital Brewery has been CANCELED! The event was automatically canceled by the Meetup site when we switched organizers. Rather than rush to get the event set up again, I thought it would be easier to just set up this new happy hour and dinner for September 22.

See you at Cafe Assorti!
