Winding Down Summer with Around Arlington MeetupSep 08, 2015 02:10PM ● By Dawn Craig
We’ve been enjoying outdoor movies. This August we saw Tomorrowland and Avengers: Age of Ultron as part of UTA’s Outdoor Summer Movie Series. The series includes free family-friendly films that we look forward to every year. The free popcorn is great too!
Around Arlington members enjoyed the last bike ride of the summer with friends at August’s Bicycle Ride @River Legacy Park.
We love our two recurring monthly happy hours. On first Tuesdays, we’re at Bar Louie. In August members donated lots of paper, pens, crayons, backpacks and more at our School Supplies & $5 Burgers @Bar Louie event. We also meet monthly on a Wednesday at the newly renovated JR Bentley’s English Pub. While they are famous for fish & chips, you really ought to try the garlic parmesan fries too.
We hosted several more dinner and happy hour events. The food is always tasty for Dinner & Happy Hour at BFF Asian Bar & Sports Grill. At our summer-themed Beat the Heat Happy Hour @Fuzzy’s Taco Shop folks enjoyed the cold margaritas. And at our Happy Hour @Buffalo Wild Wings in Grand Prairie we met many new members.
We also hosted two educational events: a Free Homebuyers Workshop and a Free Dinner & Money Workshop. These recur monthly.
We also met lots of new folks at several multi-Meetup group events this month. We had fun at two Game Nights and a Vikings vs Cowboys Preseason House Party with members from Fort Worth Bachelorettes and Beaus and DFW Christian Singles Meetup groups. We’re looking forward to lots more Cowboys watching parties this Fall!
