THE VENUE FOR THIS MEETUP HAS CHANGED. DUE TO THE UNEXPECTED CLOSURE OF ZIRZAMIN, WE WILL BE MEETING AT MADAME X NEXT DOOR TO THE ORIGINAL VENUE. SEE BELOW FOR UPDATED VENUE INFORMATION.
The Texpats are meeting on Thursday, 7/18 for our July happy hour at Madame X, a Moulin Rouge inspired bar that evokes mental images of a southern bordello in Greenwich Village / SoHo. There's even a back patio!
The unexpected closure of ZirZamin has left us with few options. Fortunately for us, the bar next door is available to accommodate! Madame X describes itself as "a bordello-style lounge with comfortable couches, sexy red lighting, great cocktails, and no attitude."
It's not our usual digs, but it'll do in a pinch and you just might find someplace new that you like!
We'll meet at Madame X (94 W Houston St. (https://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&q=madame+x+nyc&fb=1&gl=us&hq=madame+x&hnear=0x89c24fa5d33f083b:0xc80b8f06e177fe62,New+York,+NY&cid=2787543588055746333&t=m&z=16&vpsrc=0&iwloc=A)) around 6pm and stay through 9 or 10pm. We have an area reserved in the back, so grab a drink at the bar and head toward the patio to find your fellow Texpats.
Bring your Texas friends and your NYC compatriots if you think they show a little southern flair.
