Catch up drinks....(and dancing later in the evening)

Hello friends!! Time to be a bit different as the summer has ended and the weather has become gorgeous! 

We are going to the Chinwaggery pool side bar on the 2nd floor of the Movenpick Hotel in JBR which overlooks the beach. We have private cabanas booked and so should be able to sit comfortably and chat. (Free Valet Parking is available but you will have to drive a bit on JBR walk to get to the front of the hotel. Traffic will be busy later in the evening and so please arrive early to make it easier for yourself. Alternately take a taxi or the metro to Marina station and a 5 to 10 min walk from there.)

As the evening progresses, the adventurous and the enthusiastic, can consider heading out dancing to one of the many establishments which are only a short walk away. 

New members are requested to arrive early so that we can facilitate introductions as others arrive. If you arrive very late then organisers get busy enjoying their own evenings and so you may not benefit from our support.

Please google the hotel and location in advance if you do not know it. Also please call me on[masked] or Christine on[masked] or Dominic on[masked] if you are lost or would like some advance guidance on getting there. (Please call now and do not leave it till 7pm on Friday!!) 

I am so looking forward to connecting with old friends and making new ones! See you all very soon.

Raj

      After a night kidding ourselves we can still "party like its 1999", you can always rely on the phrase "uploading a few pics" to instill panic and restore reality !!!

      3 · October 6, 2013

    • Global Organiser - Raj D.

      Hey Peter, pics of gorgeous people, why the panic?!! We will be 18 till we die and always party like it is the naughties!

  • Global Organiser - Raj D.

    Let me join Dom and Chris in thanking you all for joining us on this spectacular evening! As organisers we try relentlessly to create fun events, select the right mix of genders, backgrounds, nationalities and interests and then work energetically to ensure no one is ever alone at our gatherings. Regardless it is the collective group energy and drive which lifts us all and makes for such fun events. We very clearly want to make the most of now!! We have some unique fun ideas for later in the year, so stay tuned. In the meanwhile please spread the word to other like minded people. We would love to meet your friends! Finally I am away in London next weekend but then back over the Eid holidays. Chris is very likely to schedule drinks for next weekend, so watch this space.

    Hi! So far I have only managed to one event - the last 2 looked great fun so I need to make up for lost time.... Need my sensible head on though as I need to work on Saturday but determined not to miss another ! Hope to meet some new friends but plenty of good conversation for sure!

    I am joining for the first time ... hope you guys dont bully new joiners :)

    Icon lounge at Radisson Blu DMC is a classy place.
    Boardwalk or QDs near Dubai Creek is a great option if travelling that side of the town is an option.

      As you rightly pointed out we have had our fun, cruises (champagne well beer and wine but close), flashy bars and the rest its time to get back to proper talking and connecting. So hopefully it could be a gem.. u did mention dancing ? there is a band but couldn't say there very good wouldn't know what the air conditioning situation's like (yes would have to move on to perhaps Boutique 1 ?!! )..

    I suggest to go to Toro Toro .. It is a sublime beautiful location (rest/bar) that within the night the rhythm gets transformed from being relaxing, turning into a great place for drinking and dancing - for the adventures and wild hearted ones.

    September 28, 2013

    • Global Organiser - Raj D.

      Thank you Lorena. Toro Toro is one of my locals and it gets extremely lively on weekends!! Will slot it in for later in the year.
