We are checking out Cabana again. We will have FREE COVER until 11:00pm and 2 booths reserved for us. Just tell them at the door you are with "meetup". Cabana is opening up early EXCLUSIVELY for our group from 9pm - 10pm. I requested this so we will have some time to sit and chat and get to know each other before it get's busy. It's also a GREAT chance to meet some people before our big New Years Eve Party! If you haven't been to an event yet or don't know many people, tonight is your chance to make some new friends. Then you'll already know some people when you come out on New Years. Everyone get's a FREE welcome shot! Just make sure you get a ticket when you come in and give it to the bartender! (Don't forget to leave a tip). The music will be top 40 and hip hop.
This is the last meetup before Christmas so come out and celebrate that or any other holiday that you would like! Everyone is welcome. Happy Holidays to all of you! I'm going to be dressing up so if anyone else is looking for an excuse to be a little fancy, tonight's the night.
Come join us for a night of drinking, dancing & socializing and let's spend some time with great friends. We're a friendly and easy going bunch so don't worry if you can't or won't dance. Just show up and have a good time with us!
We will be wearing glow bracelets so you can find us. You can bring your own or pick one up from Meghann (wearing a bunch of them) for $1. That way people can tell you are with our group. It's really helpful if you are new to the group. Can't wait to see you all there!
***Remember to bring two pieces of ID. Every place we go to has to check your ID no matter how old you are.
Frequently asked questions:
I can't make it there on time, can I come later? YES! You are welcome to come at anytime! Don't worry, we are happy to have you whenever you can get there.
It's too late to RSVP, can I still come? YES! It's not a problem if you decide to come last minute and RSVP's are closed or you just forgot to make one.
It's my first time and I'm shy... Make sure you come early! The later it gets, the busier it gets which makes it harder to find people. Make sure you have a glow bracelet. Without one people think you are the just a random person trying to talk to them (most people don't like random people coming up to them in a bar). Find some people wearing glow sticks that look shy like you, talking with a group or are on their own. Ask if they are from Meetup then start chatting. REMEMBER - each time you go, you meet more people. There are tons of regulars that attend each week so the more you come, the more you meet and the more fun you have!
How do I find you? Many people in our group wear glowing bracelets so you can spot us in the crowd. It's also good to look at who's attending ahead of time so you can recognize some people as well.
Is this a singles group? No - Anyone is welcome to join no matter what your relationship status. This is NOT a dating group. It is NOT for finding someone to hook up with. Anyone found using this group to just pick people us will be removed. If relationships form over time that is fine but it is never acceptable to try to take someone home from this group if you just met them, especially if they have been drinking.
Do I have to dance with the group? You are welcome to hang out with the group or dance with your friends. Most of our members do hang out in a large group together. I would love for you to at least come find me and say hello so I who is attending the event.
Do I have to wear a glow stick? No. We wear them so you can find us. If you would like one, you are welcome to bring your own or pick one up for $1 by asking the organizer of the event (normally Meghann wearing a bunch of them) for one. They make it easy for us to tell who is part of our group and let you know who you can talk to. We use this money to help cover the monthly meetup fees that meetup.com charges the organizer.
Can I come if it's a birthday or special event? Yes, even if you don't know the person it is no different than a regular event of ours. Please come and join us and meet some new people. Everyone is always welcome!
Coat Check: Please be careful if you bring a coat and decide not to use the coat check. I have seen quite a few people have their coat stolen. $4 for coat check is a lot cheaper than a new coat. People have even had their coats stolen when all our coats are in a pile together. Please only leave something unattended if you don't care if you lose it (like an old sweater). Girls - you'll have a lot more fun if you aren't carrying around a big purse. Try finding a tiny purse just for the bar that you can sling over your shoulder while you dance.
Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. If you have any issues, please let Meghann or another host know.
