**** Volunteers Needed ! Give back to the group by hosting your own smaller events (dinners, happy hours, brunches, lunches. etc). Join our Event Host program. ****


==> This event is a Members-Only event (No Guests Allowed). Besides, membership is free ;-)

==> NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs and our No-Show Policy.

==> RSVP Cancellation Cutoff for this Event is 4pm Saturday, 7/20 (Late Cancel applies after this)


I'm feeling in the mood for classic belgian food, so we're heading out for Saturday night dining at Sur La Place (Palisades neighborhood of DC).

FOOD: Belgian fare. So expect Steak Frites, escargot, a lobster bisque, & your general meat/fish entrees. But what's really touted here are the mussels, you'll notice a VERY diverse selection to choose from.

Nice selection of beers (Abbey, Trappist, Tripels, Dubbels, etc), wines & cocktails here as well. Service is quite European ... they don't hover & provide space for diners to talk, but you may need to flag someone down for a water refill ;)

SPACE: The restaurant is located in the quiet & cozy Palisades neighborhood in DC, about 1 mile northwest of Georgetown. the space is quite relaxed, not stuff at all (it's a neighborhood place afterall)


==> Tax/Tip combo is our required 30% for any additional items above the Deal ( see the FAQs for more details)
==> No Guests (have your friends join, it's free!)
==> Limited to 14 slots

See you there!



CLOSEST METRO : This Venue is NOT Metro Accessible ... though there is metered Street Parking and consistent WMATA buses running from many Metro Stations!

--> The local D6 bus runs every 30 minutes on Saturdays (till 2 am and goes right by the restaurant!) and connects with lots of Metro Stations (Dupont, Farragut West, Metro Center, Union Station, & Stadium Armory). This event is very workable for most folks w/o a car. :)

For directions using the Metro, try using the Trip Planner at the WMATA website.

Need to Contact the Restaurant? [i.e. confirm location, notify to the group if running late, etc.]. Text on your phone to 466453 (GOOGLE) and type the restaurant name + the city/state in the message body. Google Business Services will text you back with the address and phone #!


1. Limited to 16 slots.

2. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 2,800+ members and limited seating, we cannot afford no-shows. It's unfair to the other members who would like to attend and also to the organizers who have to explain to the restaurant why the reserved # of guests didn't show (can damage our reputation). No-Show rules apply.

3. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (the Organizer for each event will enable this as needed). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event.

4. Billing (add 30% tax/tip to your bill). Remember, include the required 30% for tip / tax in addition to the food / beverages you order as defined in our FAQs.

5. NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs and our No-Show Policy.
