• Board Games Night at Inchin's Bamboo Garden, 6pm start!

    Inchin's Bamboo Garden

    Friends - you knew it had to happen, that we were having just too much fun on Mondays so we'd have to start expanding to additional nights. Join us as we expand to every other Wednesday night at Inchin's Bamboo Garden at 1726 Chestnut Street (2nd Floor). Its a FREE event to attend, but please sign-in when you arrive so we can keep track of the number of people attending. Inchin's Bamboo Garden I was looking for a Center City location with an interesting & upbeat cuisine for us to start a new Board Gaming series at, and Inchin's seemed perfect. We had a terrific time there recently for happy hour & then we had a terrific time there with Board Games in August. Plus they have a large second floor space, accessible by both stairs & elevator. About their food & drink concept... Imagine going to a Chinese restaurant in India. Here is how they describe it: << Trendy Pan Asian fusion restaurant with a focus on on Indian Chinese, the type of Chinese food served in India. Our menu spans the farthest reaching countries in Asia, such as Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, and Singapore. >> ...sounds GREAT to me! Wednesday Board Games Night (every other week!) We'll try to duplicate our same fun, social, and laid back style of friendly board gaming that you've become used to on Mondays at Tavern on Broad. I will bring over some of our House Games to Inchin's, but we are also counting on members to assist by bringing some games that they enjoy & feel comfortable teaching. I will be adding more details so stay posted. I hope you're all as excited about this as I am! Please feel free to leave comments below or send me a message through Meetup system. can't wait, see you there, David[masked] ...by the way, if you'd like to stay in touch with member of MeetUp on Facebook, you are welcome to join any of our Facebook groups geared to Philly area MeetUp members.

  • Suera Salsa Social

    Lucha Cartel

    It's been a good run. Due to a schedule change on my end, though, I will no longer have my Tuesday evenings free. That does not mean the party stops.....far from it mes amis!!! I am leaving you in the capable hands of Joseph and Amelia. They have been consistent regulars for the Tuesday soirees, and some of you may have even run into them if you've been coming to the Vango Soirees. The event will be run in a similar manner like the Vango soirees. You will be meeting by the main bar between 9-9:30 p.m. to enjoy some liquid refreshment, gain some courage, socialize, etc. You will then be able to take advantage of the free lesson taught by my friend and instructor Mike Andino from Estillio Dance Studio. Mike is one of the most amazing salseros I know in the Greater Philly Metro area. His lessons are always fun and filled with humor and great energy By the way, if you are interested in staying in touch with our MeetUp events on Facebook, you are invited to join our "Philadelphia 20s and 30s Social" fb group, here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/293456591117232/

  • Tuesday Happy Hour at Queen & Rook Board Games Cafe!

    Queen & Rook Game Cafe

    Who wouldn't enjoy a drink with friends after work on a Tuesday? Every Tuesday we go to a different Center City location for Happy Hour, often trying out new spots. On Tuesday Sept 24th we will be gathering at the newly opened board games cafe Queen & Rook at 607 S 2nd Street. They feature a library of over 1,000 board games! This is a terrific opportunity for us to check out the newly opened cafe, enjoy some cocktails & snacks, socialize, and enjoy some board games as a group! As a group, we will NOT be charged a "games fee" or "gaming library fee" (as most board games cafes do), this will be a FREE event to attend. You may have to say you are with "MeetUp" when you enter to not be charged. I will have MeetUp signs & the staff will be expecting us, so we should be easy to find when you arrive. If you are new to our to our Tuesday Happy Hours, I always make sure that we will be able to have separate checks so you only pay for what you order. Meet, Talk, Network! This event is designed to be fun, and in an easy and relaxed atmosphere where our members can meet, talk, and network. You are welcome to bring additional friends with you, the more the merrier! see you soon, David[masked] ...by the way, if you'd like to stay in touch with member of MeetUp on Facebook, you are welcome to join any of our Facebook groups geared to Philly area MeetUp members.

  • Vango Sky Lounge Soiree

    Vango Lounge & Skybar

    Greetings everyone: With my Rueda practice being shifted to Wed evenings, I've decided to host a weekly evening of cocktails and dancing on Monday nights at Vango Sky Lounge & Bar. So here is the deal. Everyone is responsible for paying for their own drinks and food.We will be meeting on the main floor between 9:00-9:15 p.m. to socialize with one another. At 9:15 p.m. you can take advantage of the free lesson, which will be salsa. THAT'S RIGHT ... FREE LESSON!!! The instructors infuse their lesson with a bit of humor and raucousness as everything is broken down step by step to provide a fun learning experience. Once the lesson is over, practice what you've learned, as well as continue to drink & socialize. Rey Rosario and Joe Figueroa will be alternating biweekly in the DJ Booth, bringing you the best salsa, bachata, and additional Latin tunes throughout the night.....1,2,3...5,6,7!!! The social attracts a lot of different levels of dancers from beginners to intermediate to advanced. Everyone dance with each other and is delighted to share their knowledge of moves/tricks/shines. See you there. Nuff said. P.S. If you don't recognize me from my photo, please ask Amal behind the bar to point you in my direction☺ & tell her you're looking for Josh. I've known the staff for years and they've always been attentive to us.

  • Coffee & Chill

    La Colombe - Fishtown

    I used to host a coffee hour every Sunday and then had to put it on the back-burner due to other commitments. Since I have free time again on Sunday mornings, why not relax and enjoy some iced or hot java among good company in a great space. Feel free to bring UNO or variation of UNO Card games. La Colombe's java and pastries, full breakfast entrees are always on point and where else can you purchase cool swag items, like caps that state "Catching the redeye"...lol. For those driving in, you can park in the lot at 1320 Front Street, adjacent to a bar/restaruant. $5.00 will give you three hours of parking, then you'll have to buy a new ticket if you decide you want to explore the various thrift stores and other small/boutique shops or grab lunch/dinner later at one of the local eateries along Frankford avenue after the event winds downs.
