meet the girls (45+)
Friday night you’ll get to meet some of the club ladies:)
Where do I go?
On arrival at the Stamford Plaza, walk through the lobby bar area, and head to the desk for the restaurant, ask for Social with a Twist and they will show you to your table. Alternatively, ask for Ashleigh who is the duty manager, and let her know you’re there for Social with a Twist event and she’ll show you to table.
What to expect?
There will be name cards at the table so you can take your name card and place in front of you so that ladies do not have to worry about remembering names. This will be a chance to chat with the club girls, check out the events and you can grab something to eat if you want to.
You will get 15% discount on food, and can purchase happy hour priced drinks. You’ll just pay for your food/drinks at the Stamford at the end of the evening.
You will get a copy of this Social Diary so you can lock in the dates in your diary for the events you would like to go to:
