    I'm new to this meetup group and interested in attending this event but I don't know much Hindi..should I skip out this time? Future thanks for the info!

    November 7, 2012

    • Rhonda L.

      hi Victoria, welcome. No need to worry about not knowing Hindi here. Ive gone to one already when I was new, and I can't speak it either. But everyone is pretty understanding of that, and would use English for me. and there tends to be a mix of English/Hindi anyway. Are you interested in learning? We'll pick up some words while we make new friends Im sure:)

      November 7, 2012

    • Victoria

      Thanks for the help Rhonda. And yes, I'm interested in learning! Looking forward to meeting and will see you then!

  • Aradhana

    does anyone know what time the party would be over?

    October 29, 2012

    • Rhonda L.

      Well, if its anything like the last one I went to, I'd say it lasted about 4+ hours? But maybe its more a case of however long you want to stay is fine of course. I remember at the last one I felt a little bad because many of us stayed so late they were trying to close the restaurant.

      October 29, 2012

  • Rhonda L.

    Looking forward to seeing warm familiar faces, and meeting new ones at this. Also I think it'll be really great to see all the traditional Indian garments, they are so many gorgeous colors. But if I don't have a sari, is it alright to just dress as i would for a special occasion?
