Started out as a seasonal group, to pass the winter with new friends out and about at dining and cultural events in the city. By popular demand, the season has been extended! The group is centered around dining in Chicago, but extends to other cultural social events in the city. The dining focus is on finding the best combination of fine food at prices reasonable enough to attend these as often as you can. That means a selection of BYOB's, events on specials night at some of the best restaurants in the city, an Around the World in Chicago dinner series highlighting new ethnic restaurants, and then some events that have less to do with food and more about exploring culture in Chicago! Come discover new restaurants, enjoy delicious meals and make satisfying conversation with friendly dinner companions. It's a big dinner table and all are welcome!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
