Weekend Social for Western (& or western educated) Expats in Dubai

Are you interested in meeting and connecting with other Western (& or western educated) Expats in the city? If you are someone who fits in this group, then this is an evening you do not want to miss out on... We believe that people who have a similar cultural background/education are more likely to be on a similar wavelength, have similar interests & aspirations and thus tend to connect easily. Join us at Rosso for an evening of classy socializing where you will be able to meet & connect with other western (& or western educated) expats. A friendly & warm Italian ambiance coupled with charming hospitality is what Rosso offers all its guests. Consistently crowded, this restaurant and bar is a night spot in its own right. (By Western we refer to people of all ethnicity, races & religions who are from culturally Western countries - include within it countries in Europe, North & South America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Korea, etc. Citizens & Residents of these countries & those who were educated or have lived in these countries are invited to this social evening) Information & event details: Please READ COMPLETELY - This evening is for Western and or western educated members. - You must be 21+ carry valid id (Emirates id or passport). - We start @ 7:30 pm (please try and arrive on time so you can have the benefit of meeting the maximum number of people). - Please ask for Rima when you arrive and you will be shown to our area - I will welcome you warmly into the group and provide you with an Expats wristband (the band will make it easy to recognize other members). - I will also help with introductions & mingling, so no one will be alone (please note: Intros will be made till 9:00 pm only) Event cost: AED 50 payable in CASH only (will be collected by the organizer at the start of the evening - please carry the exact amount) - Happy Hour till 9:00 pm. - All members will get 1 shot (non-alcoholic or alcoholic) after 9:00 pm - We will continue socializing till 9:30 pm, after which people are welcome to stay on and enjoy the ambiance.
