BEST Mediterranean food! Belly Dance Show! & a 70s/80s DANCE band just for us!

Hey guys!  Come dance with the Belly Dancer!!  Then Dance to Mike Dwyer and his band.  They promise to play our kind of music!

This restaurant has been voted best Arabic food in SD County for 2 years in a row!  Then, while dining on Kabobs, salad, Hummus, etc. - watch a great belly dancing show!

But you won't be able to sit for long 'cause the dancer will get all of you out on the floor to show your stuff!!

 The owner says:  ALL wine - $ 4.00!

                               Beer - $ 1.00 off reg. price!

And the good food is really inexpensive!

We should almost have the place to ourselves because they don't usually have a band this night.  The owner is hiring the band - JUST FOR US!

Plenty of parking in the 2 lots behind the restaurant!

LET'S DO THIS!!

    Variety is the spice of life and Linda you always come through! I had a great time, belly dancing was fun and I really enjoyed the terrific 3 piece band; I danced and they played non stop with a great repertoire...I give them 5 stars too!

    Hello everyone! I hope you had a good time! I LOVED the belly dance show! The band wasn't what I would have booked for us, but the owner hired them just for us! And I really appreciated it! If we do it again - I'll request one of our favorite bands!
    Also - we had a new member - Salem - who wasn't greeted. It wasn't our usual setup - giving out name tags. etc. because at first, there wasn't enough seating and I was scrambling around to get more. So Salem wasn't greeted! So Sorry Salem! There were diners in the restaurant other than our group so I might have thought you were not with us.
    Next time - come see ME! And I'll make sure you're introduced to everyone!
    Linda

      Salem, look forward to meeting you at the next event.

      Hello Salem, Welcome to our group. I'll look for you at the next meetup. Be sure to come, because we have a blast at the Downtown Cafe'. I will agree with Boyd on how hectic it was. (not our usual). Linda is a "Great Organizer". I don't think the establishment was ready for the size of our group, and we are usually wearing name tags which helps out with identifying everyone in our group.

    LOVED the BAND! LOVED the FOOD! First band I ever saw go over 2 hours without a break. Great rhythm and sound. Had an A-OK Time. Would like to see them again. The belly dancer was even cool. Taught my friend new belly-dancing maneuvers.

    The belly dancing show was a lot of fun. The band was horrible. We left after 3 songs.

      The music wasn't what we like - but the owner hired them just for us and I appreciate it! And it was free!

      The band wasn't horrible. Horrible is that band that played at DTC that one time that had the drummer that couldn't keep time and the female vocalist who couldn't stay in key but kept trying to sing Janice Joplin like Janice Joplin. These guys were fine. Music I knew all the words to in key and in time. ;)

    I had a great time, met some great people, the ladies were all wonderful and fun loving, dancers all. I was greeted by Linda and she seated me with 3 very lovely ladies, both inside and out. For me the band was okay, a little loud, maybe I was sitting too close, my musical taste lean more towards pop/rock and R&B rather than Country/clear water. the food was superb and reasonably priced. All in all i had a great time.

    The meal was very good, enjoyed the show, Belly Dancing.... The band was different but nice for a change... I enjoyed listening to them and dancing too. It was a bit hard to socialize with everyone spread out all over the place...

    I'm bringing my own belly dancer. Will they let her dance?

    1 · May 16, 2014

  • Marianne W.

    Should we get there early if we want to have dinner?

    May 16, 2014

    • Linda L.

      I think we should all probably get there by 6:30 or so to sign in and get settled because the show starts at 7 PM. But we can order food anytime!

    Belly Dancing!!!! This is sure to bring out all of the members that Clark has scared away....They'll be coming out of the woodwork:) I'll bring a wash cloth to wipe the drool from Clark's mouth.

    • Linda L.

      Should we even TELL him about this?

      April 28, 2014

    • RON

      Sure.....just don't give him the correct date. He'll never know the difference once he checks out the dancers....nor will he care:)
