EXIM Networking and Happy Hour

The Gryphon

Let us get together and plot to IMPORT & EXPORT all over the world!:) It is irresistible, to enjoy an EXIM (Export Import) Convo with half-priced appetizers, glass of wine and rail drinks. Instead of silently doing research on your own, it is well known that when you are regularly connected with people of your own sector interest, you are likely to be more motivated, better informed and less likely to miss out on opportunities. Meet and discuss face-to-face. We have specials and an extended happy hour, just for our group. Gryphon also make me feel loved and honored, by serving, one of my favorite cocktails, which is named after me - MerTini:) It will be one of the featured cocktails. I organize this with my other Meetups and you will get to mingle with many insanely friendly socialites. METRO INFO : Gryphon is half a block from DuPont Circle Metro Station P Street exit. PARKING : Street parking might be difficult. However, if you plan to drive, there are parking garages around. ABOUT THE VENUE : Gryphon is a Meat & Raw Bar Social House. These words encompass the entire dining experience presented at the Gryphon. The Meat & Raw Bar Food Experience The food experience is meat-centric with a heavy emphasis on beef. But the menu includes a variety of options for pork, lamb, seafood and, of course, an outstanding oyster based raw bar that includes shrimp, lobster and clams. The philosophy, is to bring out the experience of enjoying the meats and other food on the menu through two things: The Preparation - such as curing, grilling, broiling, roasting and aging; and The Presentation - EVERYTHING is plated to share or “pre-cut.” We encourage all of our guests to order with that in mind. Social House In a nutshell social dining provides our guests with exceptional food and drink (specially crafted cocktails, selected beers and wine) and puts them together in a lively, fun, and energetic atmosphere at the Gryphon.

Free Investment Seminar (RSVP required)

After hosting successful events, I always think that we could have done better and relate it to our day to day life and make it educational. In this connection, I wanted to show off my investment and trade hat and organize series of Happy Hours around Investment & Trade. We will have speakers from different sectors and industries, at each Happy Hour. At this particular event, the speaker will discusses Smart Strategies for Maximizing Social Security . Topics will include: 1. Today’s retirement challenges 2. Keys to help you understand the basics of Social Security, including when you should start taking benefits 3. Qualifications for retirement benefits and survivor benefits 4. Sources of income in retirement 5. Building an income plan. The address will be sent to members, who RSVPed, before the Event. Enjoy!
