What better way to start the weekend having a coffee among friends and maybe enjoying a piece of cake or pastry. OMG it’s Friday is now for over a year an event enjoyed by many visitors, expats, and locals alike. We get together to enjoy each other’s company, have casual & interesting conversations, laughing and having fun. The "OMG it’s Friday" event is followed by "The Late Lunch", and the "To early to go home coffee" event. For those joining us for the first time please note that we meet at Emporium Tower (connected to Emporium Mall) The entrance is on Beshasari Park side of Emporium or through the M level entrance inside the mall. We are on the 2nd floor of Emporium Tower at Au Bon Pain. You can’t miss us, just look for our Meet Up sign or the group that is laughing and having fun. We hope to see you at our events and morning importantly coming back as often as possible.
Our weekly "OMG It's Friday Morning Coffee" has a large following and as a matter of fact, many of our members then stay on for lunch. Some members are unable to make the morning event and they join us just for lunch. About 1pm we leave our OMG Coffee meet up and either walk across the street to EM Quartier or stay at Emporium for lunch. In order to offer a variety of food choices we have over time developed a rotation of locations that's been a great success. The rotation schedule is as following: 1st Friday - located at Food Court EM Quartier Glass Building Basement Level 2nd Friday - Culineur School of Cooking Restaurant @ Emporium located on 5th floor Emporium next to the movie theater or 7th floor elevator in Emporium Tower (A special rotating menu selection and specials will be offered to our group) 3rd Friday - Food Court EM Quartier Glass Building Basement Level 4th Friday - Arno's Burger located on 7th floor EM Quartier Helix Building 5th Friday - In month with five Fridays we will announce in time alternative venues. If you're not attending OMG in the morning please join us at 1:15p for the late lunch. After lunch a hard core group will continue on to the third part of the day and attend "To early to go Home Coffee".
After "OMG it's Friday" and "The Late Lunch" we have our third Friday event "It's to early to go home coffee"! Latecomers that could not attend during the earlier parts and absolute lovers of our Friday events join in and continue with interesting conversations, making new friends or just enjoy each other’s company. Please never hesitate to just come for this event as many visitors and first time attendees favor this event. Currently we have two different locations we meet and should we add more or need to move due to overcrowding we will announce it immediately. We meet at: Culineur School of cooking Restaurant @ Emporium 5th floor Emporium next to the movie theater/7th floor Emporium Tower Cakes, tarts, and other items are made fresh daily and in some cases just prepared after ordered. Even if you could not join in the morning or for lunch, you are always welcome to join just in the afternoon.
