Hola a todos,
Come join us for some margarita / sangria / wine drinking fun all while chatting in Spanish! Rosa Mexicano (and that's correct, not "Mexicana" since it refers to a type of Mexican pink) is an awesome meeting spot for our group. We take over the side section in this large open-doored restaurant, next to the bar, enjoy some tapitas and get to know each other in Spanish. This Mega section attracts many members, so if you want to get a spot RSVP right away. Likewise, update your RSVP if your plans change to open up a spot, since we almost always have a waiting list.
So how does it work? Simple, show up, introduce yourself and chat in Spanish (ONLY). Most people are coming on their own as well, so you will be the "norm" if you are too. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly. All levels are welcome, with the only rule being it is a Spanish only event (occasionally, by the way, we do post "Spanish optional" events). This group has many native speakers who are regulars, many advanced speakers who lived in Spanish-speaking countries for years, and a fair amount of learners. We tend to stay on our feet to promote mingling and meeting and socializing with more people.
These events are FREE, but anyone joining will need to purchase one drink or food item. This is to keep our venues happy (and sorry, water doesn't count as "one" drink ; ) This is important since without your participation in keeping venues happy they might make us "guarantee the bar" or pay for the space. As long as you order a little bit of this or that, it will be good enough. And, oh yea, don't forget to tip : )
Hope you can come join our fun group soon!
Un abrazo a todos, y os veo muy pronto,
