What we're about

We are a multicultural nightlife group. Our events vary from dinners, volunteering, museums, discussions, and clubs to concerts. We don't always do the same type of events and we like it that way. We are a group that appreciates and respects diversity and we welcome friendly like-minded members. We welcome new members and our goal is to make you feel comfortable as first timers.
