The next meetup after Thursday January the 17th will be a jazz meetup at Storyville on Wednesday January the 23rd starting at eight pm. See this ! : http://www.facebook.com/events/122654437902041/

You need to buy a ticket to Storyville. You can buy it at http://www.lippu.fi. The event is listed under "Nat Newborn".
They do charge a small fee for the online service, bringing the total cost to 9.50 Euros. It is certainly a good idea to buy the ticket as soon as possible because we do not know for how long there will be tickets to buy.

Welcome all interested to an expat meetup at Kitty´s Public House on Friday February the 8th starting at 5 ( ! ) pm:
http://www.facebook.com/events/355817677849720/

Finns, tourists and visitors to Helsinki are also welcome !

from the event description on the Facebook page:

Citykäytävä, Keskuskatu 6 Close to railway station
http://www.oluthuone.fi/kittyspublichouse.html

Now it is time to celebrate British beer! A British pub with different beers and ciders, along with darts and table games.

The tables reserved for the group will be marked with "Helsinki Expat Meetup" sign(s).

If you can not see the sign anywhere and you have trouble finding the group you can always turn to the staff for help. They have a list of table reservations and Helsinki Expat Meetup is on that list.

And remember! This event starts exceptionally early: 5:00! This is for those that want to come straight from work, or want to have more intimate conversations...before the place gets loud and crowded! Of course, you can come at any time!
Hope to see you there! :D

The meetups are organized and will be hosted by Jessica Powell ( an American from North Carolina ).

If you are interested in a meetup but are unable to RSVP because you are not on Facebook send a message to helsinkiexpatmeetup(at)yahoo.fi and Jessica will count you in ! You can also use that same email address to join the Helsinki Expat Meetup mailing list. If you join the list you will get information ( once a week ) on upcoming events.
