AroundMainLine.com’s second monthly get together on February 22nd, Monday Night Meetup at MIXX, offered more than 30 AML fans and Main Liners an opportunity to enjoy and dine at Villanova’s newest hotspot. MIXX is the eighth property of Win Signature Restaurants and owners Win and Sutida Somboonsong. Located in the downstairs space, formerly the home of “Maia Market,” to Main Line diners, this latest addition re-opens the 22,000 square foot space in its entirety. When Win Signature Restaurant Group took over the upstairs of the location (that formerly housed Maia) and converted it to Azie on Main, they were eyeing the vacant downstairs space for a different venue. “We weren’t exactly sure what we were going to do with this space at first. But, once we settled on the downstairs and the name, then the planning begin,” explained Christine Olmsted, company ombudswoman. “Comfort food with a twist was the concept that we settled on, and Win (the company) sticks to what we know. Most of our properties have a global influence, but we know that does not always translate in a suburban environment. MIXX is like the girl next door, she doesn’t always make your heart race but you always go back to her for comfort and a ‘safe place.’”

MIXX made for an outstanding locale for AML’s February Monday Night Meetup. Our guests enjoyed happy hour specials from 5 to 9pm (extended two hours to honor our special event) and one lucky attendee walked away with a gift card for dinner for two! One Monday each month, AML will be hosting Monday Night Meetup across the Main Line as a casual and fun way to catch up with our Facebook fans and Twitter followers and connect with the community at-large.
