Vango Skylounge Soiree

Vango Lounge & Sky Bar

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.

Spasso Italian Grill

Who wouldn't enjoy a drink with friends after work on a Tuesday? Friends - its been a while since we gathered at Spasso Italian Grill in Old City. Spasso is not some "new interpretation" of Italian food, rather it feels like an ageless throwback to what you would expect from a classic Italian restaurant -- terrific food, plentiful portions, and friendly service. Some times when you're excited about trying the new hot spot its easy to forget these qualities, but lets take advantage of it on Tuesday when we return there for Happy Hour! We will be gathering in the Lounge room that has a long bar. If you don't see us, then you are probably looking for us in the dining room. Please ask the staff to direct you to the Lounge or Bar area, or give me a call (David[masked]). Happy Hour DRINK Specials 5-7pm Martinis $6 ... CHOICE OF VODKA OR GIN, COSMOPOLITAN, LEMON DROP APPLE-TINI, PEACH-TINI Manhattan $6 ... WHISKEY, SWEET VERMOUTH, WITH A SPLASH OF ANGOSTURA BITTERS Mixed Drinks $5 ...

The Lounge has both plenty of bar seating & casual table seating, so we'll have plenty of room to spread out, especially for those of us looking to have dinner. This is a FREE event to attend, but everyone is responsible for paying for their own food & drinks. We do not put a cap on the number of attendees, and you are welcome to bring additional friends.

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.
