Event description


Let's get together for dinner and a night out!

I've made special arrangements with Blackfinn for dinner and Decades for a night out!At 7:30pm, we will check in and hang out at the bar. We will be then be seated and dine on American cuisine while getting to know each other starting at 8pm.


For those that haven't been there before, Blackfinn is a lively, modern restaurant and bar that offers craveable food in a high-energy atmosphere, alongside an extensive list of craft beers and signature cocktails! Decades brings back the old-school vibe of the multi-level, multi-DJ clubs. DJs spin music from bygone eras on all three of the building’s floors and on its rooftop deck. Four decades of music and nightclub culture!

(Night Out)

Our 3-course menu consists of:


• Caesar Salad (romaine lettuce, shaved Parmesan cheese, house-made ciabatta croutons, and Caesar dressing)

Entrée (choose one of the following)

• Apple Bourbon Glazed Fresh Catch (seared haddock with a sweet apple bourbon glaze, served with sweet potato mash, and steamed broccoli)

• ​Pan-Roasted Chicken (two pan-roasted chicken breasts served with rice pilaf, steamed broccoli, and a side of BBQ sauce​)

• ​​​Asian Cashew Chicken Salad (tender pulled chicken, shredded cabbage, romaine, carrots, snow peas, fried wontons, cashews, and apple-ginger soy vinaigrette)

​​• ​J​​ambalaya (shrimp, chicken, andouille sausage, peppers and onions, simmered in a clam-tomato broth, and mixed with rice)

• ​Stir Fry (vegetarian; wok seared rice noodles, tossed with broccoli, snow peas, red and yellow peppers, mushrooms, carrots, green onions, and rice noodles​)


• Homemade Cookie Bar Bites

• Brownie Bites


After dinner, we'll head on over to Decades (cover is normally $20, which is included in our ticket price) and let loose for a night of dancing, music, drinks, and fun! From 10 - midnight, we'll have our own drink specials before the regular crowd gets there. After midnight, we'll keep it going all night with the usual Saturday night crowd! Please note gratuity is not included for dinner.

We've got an early bird special for this event of $35! The first 30 paid sign-ups, or those who pay by Sun. Oct. 1st (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $42. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early AND make payment to secure your spot and get the early bird price!

Come join us as we spend a great evening having dinner and a night out with others from our group!

- J.T.



The closest Metro is Farragut West (Orange, Blue, Silver lines) and Farragut North (Red line). I suggest Metro / cabbing / Uber'ing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. I recommend using parkopedia.com for garage parking planning.


Dress code includes includes no hats, no athletic gear, no baggy clothes, no t-shirts, no flip / flops, no timberlands, no ripped jeans, nice sneakers ok. Suggested attire for men: button up collar shirt with slacks, hard-soled dress shoes.


Please be on time. If you are late (arrive after the start time of 7:30pm), you risk the possibility of not being able to join us for the event. I will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation email as a backup (if you are not on the list, you will be required to show it). When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the PayPal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your PayPal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please log into your PayPal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.


Since this event is paid for in advance, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be submitted no later than Wednesday of the following week. For rescheduled events, you must let me know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date... no refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =)


Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell / transfer your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. Work out any payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send me (the organizer) a message letting me know the first AND last name, and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot (please also copy them on the message). To obtain their Meetup profile URL, go to their profile from the mobile website or your computer (not the app), and copy & paste the URL from your browser. I host a lot of events and groups, so please let me know the event name and group name the ticket transfer is for. You must let me know by the RSVP close time of 4:30pm on the day of the event.


Should inclement weather (e.g. snow storm, hurricane, etc.) affect our event, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. If any one of the following is not available for service due to inclement weather, we'll need to do so: Metrorail is not running to all stops; Uber (X, SUV, etc.) is not running or available at no more than 2x standard rates; venue(s) are not open. I'll post an UPDATE to the top of the event posting by 5pm on the day of our event with the details.


If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let me know in advance (a week or more before the event) and I will do my best to accommodate (message me through my Meetup profile, do NOT comment on the event posting). If you let me know the day of the event, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and I appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
