Opus Affair cocktails at Cinquecento, Monday, June 20

cinquecento patio barTomorrow, Monday, June 20 Opus Affair heads over to my favorite patio bar at Cinquecento in the South End (the restaurant also has free parking). Join them as they play host to a friendly crowd mostly comprised of 20-, 30- and 40-somethings at their monthly cocktail social which runs from 6pm – 9pm.

Unfamiliar with Opus Affair? The group is comprised of a mix of artists and art appreciators who get together each month for cocktails and to chat about the arts scene in Boston or whatever else comes to mind. Some people come for serious networking, others come for fun. There’s no agenda—just a chance to have a few drinks with other like-minded folks.
