Whether you're new to Columbus or a seasoned veteran, there are so many great things to do in our fair city! This group is geared toward anyone who loves food, culture, festivals, and having fun. Our group will be geared toward 20- and 30-somethings, but all ages are welcome.
In order to find you easily at Meetup events, you will need to have a clear facial headshot as a profile picture of you. :) This picture needs to be maintained on the site at all times.
You also need to have a "real name" posted--we want our members to get to know one another, so no "screen names" of the sort. If you want to protect your privacy, a first name or first name plus initial of your last name is sufficient.
Also, we have a "no show" policy, so please visit the "More" tab on this page and then click on "files".
Group membership size reflects members who have been active with the group within the past three to six months (as of August 01, 2016 members must have attended an event within the past six months and have visited the site within the past three months. Effective October 2016, new members must attend an event within two months of joining).
This group eats a lot of soup. I mean, a lot. If you don't see the beauty in a piping hot bowl of soup and the comfort it brings, this group might not be for you. :p
Building friendships is an important aspect of this group. Any suggestions for events will require an event host to be present and act as a point of contact prior to and throughout an event. We aren't in the practice of "spreading the word" on events, sorry. If you want to host the event, we are happy to help you with planning and going over host expectations. Additionally, businesses and individuals are not permitted to join and solicit their services. Anyone who does so will be removed from the group.
A lot of good friendships have come out of this group; as such, we ask that you honor your commitments to attending group events just as you would with any friend--keep your RSVPs current and don't cancel last-minute. (Also, for events with a table reservation, cancelations after the RSVP period closes are marked as "no shows" since we have held a spot for you at the table and now that spot is unfilled. Additionally this negatively impacts the restaurant and server's earnings for the evening since they were counting on your being there.)
