Canceled Meetup

Dinner @ ASHA followed by Dancing and Romancing With the LBSO POPS


Overview: At 6:00 pm we will have dinner at ASHA Moroccan Mediterranean Restaurant and at 8:00 pm we will attend Dancing and Romancing with the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra POPS, a short walk away at the Long Beach Arena.

Please confirm purchase of you ticket(s) and answer the "are you coming to dinner?" question when you RSVP so I have accurate numbers for the restaurant reservation. Thanks!

Important: We will look for each other in the Arena lobby at 7:45 pm; however, this can be tricky with the entire audience rushing around to get tickets and seats. So please note that the group will also gather in the lobby after the performance to ensure that everyone has a chance to be introduced to other group members, and then decide if we want to go out together after.
