Come join us !

We are a group of Arts and Culture lovers who love to socialize. Our events are mostly hosted events with a person to greet you and keep the group together.  The events size could be 5-6 people up to 20 people. Our emphasis is enjoying Arts and Culture events with opportunities to network and make long lasting friends.

We will always try to look for special discounted tickets for our events.  But we do not emphasize on cheap/free events since quality Arts & Entertainment are sometimes worth the money. This meetup may not be right for you if that is what you are looking for.

We'll go to different venues in town--museums, cultural institutions, and local film festivals.   We're theater folks so we'll be going to see alot of local community plays. We love ethnic foods so will be visiting different ethnic restaurants in DC, VA, and MD. Check out our Hidden Treasure Series, where we visit really good but not well known restaurants. This is a good opportunity to try different type of Ethnic cuisines.

People with a lot of "No Shows" i.e. more than 3 No Shows in a 4 months period will be allowed in a event at the discretion of the particular host.

Note: people who are rude to the hosts will be kick out of the group. This is a social group where bad Karma will not be tolerated.
