EuroCircle Chicago presents
ST. PATS @ DECLANS Thursday, March 21 7:00 pm

Every year we go out of our way to buck the trend and steer well clear of the green beer, drunk college kids, and horrible music. But we must tip our hats to our Irish brethren, so this year we’re skipping the weekend shenanigans and celebrating in style the Thursday after at our favorite neighborhood Irish pub – Declans in Old Town!

We chose this long-standing and super cozy neighborhood Irish pub to host our St. Pat’s
after work social event for it’s great selection of beer on tap, delicious pub food, and of course, Irish hospitality!

$4 Jameson or Bush Mills
$5 Shamrock Shaken-not-stirred Green Martinis

JUMP AROUND to the sounds of DJs O’CURLEY & McCASTRO

To mark the occasion, Cuchara has teamed with talented musical artist DJ Sun, who will play Latin sounds and cuts from his latest album, One Hundred. The album shows DJ Sun’s range as it traverses a range of influences in the artists’ 20-plus years of making music. Join Cuchara and celebrate the evening with DJ Sun’s signature dark rum cocktails alongside the restaurant’s delicious comida corrida-inspired bites.

Cuchara will have a free appetizer for those Eurocircle members that:

Join EuroCircle Austin at this lovely brand-new upscale Jazz and Blues lounge during the International Women’s Week. The International Women’s day in on Friday but due to SXSW we decided to do PRE-SXSW event to avoid all the parking & traffic hassles with hiked up pricing etc. The venue has elements of the 20s and Paris chic…you have to see it to know what I mean. You’d feel comfortable in a cocktail dress = dress up f you feel like it – and jeans, equally so. And the staff is super nice.

Showcase: French Chansons (5 Songs) at 7.30 pm

Silvie Rider-Young sings Edith Piaf
and as your special request: Automn Leaves-Les feuilles mortes”as on her latest Album ‘Je Te Connais”

Brass House Austin was conceived by Jason White while operating in a combat zone with the United States Marine Corps. He dreamed of moving to Austin and opening a live music venue at the completion of his service with the hope of providing a relaxed and enjoyable environment for those who enjoy the sounds of jazz and blues. Brass House is the realization of that dream. Jason believes strongly in community involvement and support and welcomes any and all local charities if they wish to host events in our space. We look forward to offering support and discounts to our active duty and retired military customers.

Austin – Manja Hossa

We love to feature some of the members of EuroCircle. In February you “met” online the lovely chanteuse from Switzerland, SILVIE RIDER. This month you meet Manja Hossa, a European entrepreneur in Austin.

What’s your name, from what country are you from and when did you come to Austin??

Manja Hossa, I am from Slovenia and came to Austin in 2006

What do you do for a living?

I’m the founder and an esthetician at LePA Skincare – an authentic European day spa in Central Austin.

How would you describe what you do?

I my profession, I am lucky to be able to help change people’s lives. Specifically those with problematic skin. In the process I get to be their trusted friend – something that I am so grateful for!

What does your work entail?

Technical; complete skin care, hair removal, body treatments, anti-cellulite treatments, and make-up
Customer Service; take care of my clients in every way that I can; help them take care of their skin; help them feel their best.
Business; manage shop and LePA team.

What’s a typical work week like?

Owning own business is a 24/7 job – I breathe it, I live it, and I love it!

How did you get started?

I got started as a 13 yr old at my mom’s spa in Slovenia. Was lucky to look over her shoulder and learn the technical and customer-service side of the business at a young age. Since love brought me to Austin, I wanted to continue the family legacy in Austin as well so we opened LePA Skincare in 2008 (on my mother’s birthday).

What do you like about what you do?

truly enjoy the craft and the rewarding feeling of helping people.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the commitment required to run a business weighs heavily on personal/social life.

Is it hard as a foreigner in this business to make it success in Austin?

No, being a foreigner in this particular industry is an advantage.

What education, schooling, or skills are needed to do this?

In Europe, esthetics is regarded more of a clinical/medical industry than it is in the United States; we were required to attend a 4-yr technical school to be licensed.

How much time off do you get/take?

Once a year when I visit my beautiful country – Slovenia!
And the occasional three day weekend to go fishing with my husband 

What is a common misconception people have about what you do?

– Most people in the States only go to the esthetician on special occasions – for a pampering facial. I have to spend a lot of time educating clients on how skin care can actually slow down the aging process and help ensure healthy skin.

What are your goals/dreams for the future?

My goal is to become an educator – extend the work that I do now educating clients about proper skin care to educating skin care professionals so that they can help change people’s lives as well….

What else would you like people to know about your job/career and YOU?

I love modern dance and am part of a dance company.

By the way, how did you find out about EuroCircle and when did you join?

I’ve been looking for other people in Austin from my part of the world because I was homesick and stumbled across the Facebook page (last year). So happy that I did because I’ve met so many great people since then!
