Back to trying Pop-Up events!

Fellow member & Event Host Steve has offered to Host a dining event on New Year's Eve! He's going to Arlington for great Vietnamese cuisine at Nam-Viet Restaurant (Clarendon).

Earlier Dinner. So great for either those that have NYE plans later that night, or not :)


FOOD: Here's a description from the Restaurant's website, which does a pretty good job in describing the food:

"The exceptional cuisine of the Nam-Viet Restaurant was developed by applying family culinary secrets and experience in satisfying hosts of indigenous and foreign customers of every nationality in over three generations of service.

French and Southern Mekong Delta flavors and exceptionally fine quality of ingredients are evident in our very own "Can-Tho-nese" style cooking. Can Tho, a lush, bountiful, bustling, tropical area of the Southernmost part of Vietnam, is frequently referred to as the "Bread Basket of Southeast Asia."

The demands of its people for high-energy, non-filling, non-fattening nourishment to sustain them through a tropical workday resulted in the evolution of wholesome, savory culinary dishes of unique distinction, now finding great appeal and high favor in Western diets. Whether a light, nourishing mid-day luncheon or an evening of dining elegance, we are confident you will join our ever increasing numbers of satisfied, health conscious, repeat customers"

--> REVIEW MENU: See the Dinner Menu

SPACE: Non-upscale, a neighborhood restaurant. It's about the food here.

==> Visit Nam-Viet's Virginia website for more information.


==> Tax/Tip combo is our standard 30% [see the FAQs for more details]
==> No Guests [have your friends join, it's free!]
==> Limited to 12 slots

See you there!



CLOSEST METRO: Clarendon [Orange Line]. Quick 1.5 block walk from the Metro.

PARKING: Lots of parking garages around Clarendon.

There's also metered street parking but be careful about the guidelines. Arlington police & towing companies monitor heavily.


1. Limited to 12 slots.

2. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 3,500+ members and limited seating, we cannot afford no-shows. It's unfair to the other members who would like to attend and also to the organizers who have to explain to the restaurant why the reserved # of guests didn't show (can damage our reputation). No-Show rules apply.

3. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (the Organizer for each event will enable this as needed). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event.

4. Billing (add 30% tax/tip to your bill). Remember, include the required 30% for tip / tax in addition to the food / beverages you order as defined in our FAQs.

5. NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs and our No-Show Policy.

      ? The event was negotiated directly with the owners, it's all good. Besides it's Vietnamese, the event will likely be over before 9. (Ie they won't kick anyone out already eating). ;)
