What we're about

The purpose of our group is to provide a positive and welcoming setting to practice speaking Russian and meet other Russian speakers. We meet every Thursday at James Hobans for a happy hour style get together and every 1st/3rd Sundays at Ruz Uz for a seated brunch. We ask that you keep the conversation in Russian as much as possible.

Weekly Russian Conversation at James Hobans

James Hobans

Please join us for our weekly Russian Language Conversation at James Hobans! Everyone is welcome, but please keep conversation in Russian only. For many of us, this is our only chance to practice our Russian. Happy hour prices are extended till 8:30 for our group. We do not pay to rent this space; a $10 minimum spend is requested. Timing: Someone is usually there at 5:30, but it sometimes takes me till 5:45 or so. If you get there first, please wait - we will be there! And people are usually there till at least 8. So if you can't make it right at the beginning, that is perfectly fine. RSVP's: I encourage you to RSVP. But please know that many people don't RSVP. So it may seem like only 3 people are planning to attend, but have no fear, we usually have a good-sized fun group! (And we almost always have newcomers. So if you are planning on coming for the first time, you most likely won't be the only one.) See you there! Misha Questions?

Russian conversation and food at Rus Uz

Ruz Uz - Russian Uzbek Cuisine

This Arlington Meetup at Restaurant Rus Uz (near Ballston Metro) is our popular first Sunday of the Month Meetup of the DC Russian Language Meetup. Russian speakers can gather for Russian language conversation, food and friendship. We meet two Sundays of every month--the first and third. Please join us and bring your Russian speaking friends. Everyone is welcome, but please keep conversation in Russian only. And please try to RSVP, this is a restaurant and we try to give them reasonably accurate estimate of how many will be attending. Спасибо!
