PLEASE READ/SKIM through the whole description below so you know what to expect, what to bring, how to find us, and any other info. ———————— This meetup event is for new members ONLY (people who have been to 0-3 meetup events). Note: This will be most people's first meetup event. I've been to Aurora lounge before (its near Canary Wharf), they do good shisha, have a free car park and there are various food stalls just outside the lounge that serve affordable Afghan, Jamaican, Chinese food and more. The owner has said he will give us half the lounge for the event. I'll be making a temporary Whatsapp group before the event to make logistics and meeting up easier, if you don't want to be in the Whatsapp group, I'll still be updating everyone in the comments here. If you would like to be added to the Whatsapp group please message me your mobile number. Date & Time: Thursday 10th October 📅 @ 6:45pm ⏰ Location & Directions: Meet us inside Aurora Lounge near Crossharbour station (Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/1cZAzQxyszgVNt8t8). Please text/whatsapp me on[masked] if you get lost or need more info. ———————— Prices Shisha price: 1 Shisha is priced at £20 (usually one shisha is shared between 2 people). Food and drinks are reasonably priced. They do accept debit/credit cards. We pay for everything as we order to avoid any confusion with bills at the end of the event. ———————— Meetup Group Overview This is one of the few Meetup groups where we focus on not only just meeting new people but on making genuine long-term friends. Many of our existing members have become good friends and chat often on Whatsapp (I'll add you to our Whatsapp group once you have attended 2-3 meetup events) and get together regularly outside of Meetup for dinners, events and outings. We're looking for new and cool people to join the gang :) Our members are friendly, non-judgemental and welcoming. We'll introduce you to everyone, especially people we think you'll get along with, and will ensure you have a person to share a shisha with. This Meetup will help you meet new and interesting people, network, or find a potential partner (just give me a nudge nudge wink wink if you like the look of someone and I'll slyly introduce you). Generally, we have a 50/50 gender ratio at our events. Most people are in their 20's and 30's and are from different religions (Liberal/progressive Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Atheists) and ethnicities (British, Pakistani, Indian, Bengali, French, Palestinian, Algerian and more). Our members are from all over the UK including Leicester, Coventry, Birmingham, Sheffield, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester, London and more. NOTE: I may move guys from the 'going' to the 'not going' list if the gender ratio is not balanced. The people who will be moved first will be based on those who were last to RSVP or have RSVP'd before but not attended an event. If you have been moved, it's nothing personal, bring a female guest with you to guarantee a space. Please do not attend the event if you haven't been added to the 'going' list as you will not be seated with the Meetup group. Please only mark yourself as 'going' if you genuinely intend to come as spaces are limited. Get ready for a great time out!
