XpatLoop Invitation: 'Merry New Year' Social Networking Event, Friday 20 January
Now is a great time to reconnect with friends - and make new ones - at our relaxed social networking event for expats and cosmopolitan locals. This Xpat Wine Club event will focus on 'legendary Hungarian hospitality', as always guests get unlimited sips of 20 wines, this time thanks to Veritas.

Back by popular demand will be the 'taste and play' games, along with folklore dance girls; live Gypsy music; and snacks courtesy of the historic venue Mátyás Pince - plus a traditional drop of pálinka. It all promises to be a lovely evening with quality local refreshments and classical Hungarian charm. We hope you may come along to enjoy the company of the international community, and make it a merry start to 2017. more »
