Hello. This is a social group for writers and artists (and creative people in general) who simply want to get together and share food, ideas and good conversation. This is not a work-focused group, although you're welcome to talk about whatever is on your mind. We'll meet at restaurants around Austin and will hopefully have some potlucks at members' houses and other locations. You don't need to be a foodie or gourmet cook to join. All you need to be is a writer/artist/creative type with a desire to hang out with similar people, and an appetite.

PLEASE READ THE RSVP/NO SHOW POLICY: Our meetings at restaurants are contingent on making accurate reservations. If you RSVP “Yes” to a restaurant event and then don’t show up, you will be removed from the group after two such occurrences. It only takes a few seconds to change your RSVP to “No” if you need to, so please be polite and do so.

    "Great points Nancy. In the past the locations were sometimes an issue for me too. Downtown also has the added detriment of parking often being a hassle."
