Friday, October 21, 2011 - Just When You Thought You Couldn't Have More Friends!

It's always great to know that you can meet someone new in Dubai.  After four years gallivanting around town, we are lucky to have a good group of friends and acquaintances - who without any prior planning you are pretty much guaranteed to bump into during a night out on the town.  Dubai can sometimes be a small town that can act like a big city, so it can be easy to fall into a comfort zone.

Thankfully was able to remind us that there are more fish in the sea!  We were delighted to receive an invitation to their annual anniversary party and after two years they have built up quite an impressive group!  Social Circles is the brain child of fellow American (woot) Rachel Morton, who started the group two years ago to connect people with like interests across the UAE.  They host great events for working professionals and socialites alike, and even have special interest groups for people to participate in like - I Love Movies, Dubai Party Lovers and Flirty 30's.

If the party was an indication of how fun this group is - then sign me up!  It was a fantastically organized event at the brand new Republique lounge.  It was elbow to elbow action as people participated in raffles, raced to compete in a few fun games and enjoyed some great gift bags.  If our camera reel is any indication, we had a great time!  Four hours later we had not taken one photo, we were so business meeting the great group there!  Thankfully, fishfayce had us covered.  A local fun photographer who can keep things lively.

The evening was a great reminder of how many future friends we have yet to discover and just how much fun it is going to be to find them!

With some new friends!  I've always wondered what I would look like with silicone lips!
Warning: these glasses might be regularly sized if my 3rd grade photos have anything to say about it.  Matt with the 'stache might work if he always pairs it with the fez.
The lady of the evening, with Social Circles founder Rachel Morton!

Katie, if you happen to have shoes that went with those glasses, you truly have a problem.
