Fall Season Celebration: Drinks & Dancing @ Fashion 40!!!! - Free Admission

Come join us afterwork on Friday October 19th for the Fall Season Celebration: Drinks & Dancing at Fashion 40 Lounge in the heart of Midtown! Come enjoy half priced drinks from 5pm-7pm, while the DJ spins the latest and we mingle and dance in our VIP section on the 2nd floor!

Note, the Meetup starts at 6pm, but if you are in the area earlier, you can drink downstairs beginning at 5pm for the same 2 for 1 drink specials until we set up at 6:30pm upstairs. Fashion 40 is a very cool lounge, laid back music in the beginning, before the DJ starts playing music to get you on your feet! The service is very good, and there is a full menu as well, in case you are hungry between conversations with the group and dancing!

There is no cost to attend; you just pay for your own food & drinks ordered. You can obtain more info on their menu by clicking on the link below:

Fashion 40 Menu

We will have the entire upstairs section of the venue for the Meetup. Just tell the doorman that you are there for the Meetup on the Black/Latino Meetup list. And we will have at least 1 or 2 dedicated servers taking our drink orders as well, so no need to go downstairs to the bar and wait on line. Just relax and vibe with your fellow Meetup members upstairs in VIP!

If you plan on attending, I recommend that you arrive EARLY at the start of the event. Our VIP section will fill up VERY quickly, and once we reach capacity, I [cannot guarantee that you will be able to gain access to the area upstairs. Additionally, if you RSVP YES and cannot attend, please be sure to change your RSVP by 4pm on the day of the Meetup to give another group member the chance to attend.

In summary, please note the details below:

  • You have to tell the doorman that you are on the Black/Latino Afterwork Drinks Meetup Guestlist to get in free to the venue, and also to the VIP area upstairs
  • Free admission until the end of the Meetup at 10pm
  • Half Priced drinks until 7pm
  • We will be sitting in the VIP section upstairs. This will be our "home base" for the evening, but we are free to mingle downstairs as well throughout the rest of the venue.

As always, do not be afraid to dance, or be asked to dance :). This Meetup event is definitely more geared toward those members that need to unwind and have a great time, while still mingling with fellow urban professionals[/u]. Feel free to invite a co-worker, friend or potential business client along to the social as well, and be sure to RSVP. We look forward to seeing you there!!!--Sam

    Nice looking group of folks. This was my second event and everyone seems very nice. I came solo both times and felt welcomed by the group.

      I went by myself and felt a bit out of place....but, I wasn't with the group. I look to attending the next event.

      I definitely will Tracy. It was nice meeting you to. Shane, did you stop by and speak to Sam? Before my first event he sent a group note that said if you are new or come alone stop by to see him and he would introduce you. By chance a couple of people introduced themselves to me and one of them introduced me to Sam. I think it makes it easier to start mingling.

    I didn't meet any people that were interested in networking. Most people seemed to be hanging with their own cliches and not socializing with new persons.
