To start off I'm feeling like doing a light mingle at a Russian spot with some folks! Just a heads up I'll be posting this to a couple other local groups too so expect some more of my friends and other meetupers to be there to experience this unique spot. For those folks who never had the chance to try authentic russian food (but didn't want to drive to studio city for the good stuff) feel free to try this place! Located in a sleepy glendale suburban strip mall, this hidden gem is one of the best new Russian restaurants in the valley! I myself have been here several times and I do enjoy their hearty and classic russian dishes like borsht, blinis, pelmenis, and okroshka! And wash it down with their kvass and homemade kompot fruit fermented drink! If ya don't believe me check out their reviews: https://www.yelp.com/biz/kalinka-russian-cuisine-glendale My plan is to come a bit early and grab a larger table, and maybe even make a reservation about a week early based off how much interest is for this event. This should be a slightly smaller event so there is somewhat of a cap. Heads up if you can please bring cash as they can only split so many cards, although if you have venmo that could help too! Parking is available in a small lot along with nearby street parking so read the signs as always! So for folks coming heads up, I'll be making this cap a hard one because its kind of a small spot. Well for folks who want to try something different, come give this spot a go!
