"Who gon' be there?" 👀 

LOL, we totally get it. Trust us!


The kind & caliber of "Black Folk" we allow in our circles are the best of the best. Typically educated, young spirited and upwardly mobile professionals who only surround themselves with other motivated individuals of a like-mind.


All participants of our events are screened and we quickly refund those who give signs of a problematic nature. In other words... we simply do not welcome or give admission to the riff-raffs, thugs, ratchet, boisterous or the embarrassing folk. Only the classiest Black Folk here.
