The Menara Moroccan Restaurant has for many years scheduled special Middle Eastern dance nights with dancers and sometimes live music. The dancers benefit by showcasing their talent at a popular dinner venue and afterward get a free dinner too. The restaurant makes the profit from what show patrons are charged. Neither I nor the dancers make money from the restaurant but enjoy performing for you!
A special note is the Desert Rose show last July and the Yalda show last December have been the first dance shows at the Menara anyone can recall that have had Persian ethnic dance. Both shows sold out well in advance and the upcoming Norooz show appears it will too.
There are currently 32 spaces reserved for the Bay Area Iranian Meetup Group and a waiting list we hope to include. The restaurant management expects large groups to pay a single bill for their dinner although special drinks might be billed to the table. Imagine the complexity of collecting payment from each of 40 members who pay cash/credit card and resolving it to the bill, members who might be dancing, eating, or have already left by the time the bill comes. It can be a mess which ties up members while the bill is settled and tries their patience! So we have organized a hassle-free means of paying your contribution to our dinner bill in advance using Paypal. With tax and gratuity the meal bill per person is $34.11. Paypal charges a small amount for an online transaction added to this. For details see below. Please help us all by paying your share in advance now.
The dinner and show deal for $26.99 (drinks not included) has an added tax (8.375%) and gratuity (18%) that must be paid. That adds up to $34.11 per person.
