    Thank you everyone for the great turnout! I keep joking that we'll have to go to a Chinese restaurant where the tables are round so that we can more easily talk! Enjoy the posted photos!

      I was happy to see you too. It has been awhile since I've been able to make a meetup. I hope that once I get situated in a new place at the end of this month I can continue the trend :) Thanks again everyone

    It was really nice meeting you all! :) I wish there was more room and time for us all to meet properly and introduce ourselves. We're looking forward to the next event! :) Salam!

      Thank you so much for coming Zeina! Yeah the restaurant was really small and because they had our table up against the wall, it was hard for people to get up in mingle. At other restaurants we've been to, we were arranged in such a way that allowed up to move around more freely and talk to others. Also, we had a very big group. Next time, we will try to introduce everyone and maybe rotate the seating so people can mingle. We look forward to seeing you at one of our future events. Salaam.

      Faiza I know this is last minute....very last minute. But can we come for conversation if we didn't get a chance to pre-order? Or is this place too small?

      June 8, 2014

    • Faiza

      not sure but it's worth a try esp if you're in the vicinity!

      June 8, 2014

    I just made reservations for this Sunday at 4 p.m. for 23 people!! :-)

    Please finalize/update your RSVPs by Friday morning at the latest..

    I will post the preset menu with the preset price when I get everything finalized tomorrow.

    They are closing the whole restaurant for us. It's important that we get an accurate headcount.

    Looking forward to the meal and our conversations! YALLA! :-)

    Everything is cooked fresh to order....SO...if you haven't pre-ordered your entree already, the chef will let us know what is available on the spot and you can order from those options.

    We are getting a good deal! We will have all vegetarian appetizers to share and a main entree, sodas and tea included in the $25/person price. Tips and tax are extra. Lebanese coffee and dessert is extra. We will have some baklava available...not sure how much.

    June 6, 2014

    • Faiza

      The entrees alone are $18 so we are getting a decent deal that includes our entree and appetizer and tea/soda for $25 plus tax + tip

    Marhaba! :) My husband and I are looking forward to this gathering :) are kids welcomed in these events? I have a 4 year old daughter and a 2 1/2 year old son, that I would love to have with us so they can hear more arabic from people other than Mom and Dad! :)

    May 19, 2014

    • Faiza

      I think that's totally ok and the restaurant must deal with children all the time I'm sure...maybe you can sit where it's easy to slip out for a break with your kid(s) if it becomes a challenge or disruptive b/c you never know with the little ones...my thoughts anyway..
