This group, now in its 6th year, is for committed couples in the Metrowest area interested in a lively dinner and post-dinner get-together with other couples every month or so, on Saturday night. We go to dinner at good mid-priced restaurants somewhere inside the Framingham, Natick, Westborough, Marlborough and Sudbury area.
After dinner, we usually go to someone's house nearby for coffee and dessert. If you live in the area, we encourage you to occasionally volunteer (but no more than once a year). If you live outside the area, or aren't comfortable hosting, no problem! We still hope you'll join us.
We also occasionally have spinoff activities. For example, one July someone hosted an Independence Day BBQ, and members have hosted Games Nights, and Girls' Nights Out.
Although newcomers are welcome, this is -not- a newcomers group. We hope that newcomers join the group with an intent to stay involved even after they get settled.
We're mostly (but not entirely) from Metrowest, with ages ranging from mid-30s to late-50s. We're a fun group, we think, and hope you'll consider joining us!.
In 2016 we have implemented a small annual fee ($7/person, charged as $14/couple). This fee is used to defray Meetup.com's $180/year organizer fee. Members who join have a 30 day trial period (enough to attend one meetup) before payment is required. If, for some reason, your trial period runs out before you attend a meetup, please pay the fee to get access to the meetup. If after attending one meetup you don't plan to return, contact the organizers and your payment will be cheerfully refunded. Please note that you do NOT have to pay the fee to stay in the group. You need to pay the fee ONLY the first time you decide to sign up for a meetup.
Also - One person typically represents, pays for, and signs up for, a couple. No need for a +1 unless you're bringing a 3rd person.

IMPORTANT: For all activities: One RSVP per -couple- please. Thanks!
Some members have indicated they're not getting all our messages from meetup. To insure you get all messages, you may email us at meetup -at- kwcpa -dot- com and we will add you to our backup list. We send 2-3 messages/month to this list to insure good communication.
We ask restaurants about "gluten free" and post their response in the invite. All choices also have vegetarian options. We're not experts in either though, so if you're unsure we encourage you to call the restaurant yourselves, and let us know if you have concerns.
Restaurant checks: To simplify things, we do one check for our entire party. Each couple pays for what they ordered, plus ~7% tax (includes local meal taxes), and 20% tip (assuming the service merits it). You can pay your portion by cash or credit card.
Note to potential after-party hosters: Some of our members may have allergies. Please flag if yours is a cat household, and label any desserts that contain nuts.
Last-minute Cancellations: If you've RSVP'd for an event but your plans change, that's cool (life happens!), but please update your RSVP, even just before the event. The organizers receive an Email and it eases the logistics.
Late Arrival: If you going to be late, that's also cool, but please post a comment or send an Email. We go to busy restaurants at busy times. If we don't hear from you, we can't guarantee to hold your seat more than 15 minutes after the start time. Thanks for understanding.
