Please sign up for the wait list if you want to go as spots are opening. I've turned on the manual wait list for this event since I may be charged for no shows. If a spot opens, I will go down the waiting list in order to give you a chance to sign up. If you join the waiting list and I don't have your phone number, you might want to send it to me as I'll only wait a day before contacting the next person. The week of the event I'll move much faster through the waiting list. Thanks!
Several of you have suggested that we try Etch. I reserved Etch's private dining room which only seats 12. It looks like 2 can't make it so I raised the limit to 14 as they will cancel if others can go. It wasn't easy to get a reservation, and I had to give them my credit card number in case we have no shows. I may be charged a penalty for each no show depending on the total amount our group spends. If you rsvp yes for this meetup and don't cancel 24 hours in advance and I'm charged a penalty, I will ask you to reimburse me. I dined at Etch for the first time last month and was very impressed. I look forward to dining there again with you!
The room can be reserved at 6:00 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. so that's why the meetup starts at 6:00 p.m.
Etch is the newest culinary venture from Chef Deb Paquette and is located in the ground floor of the Encore tower in downtown Nashville.

The cuisine at Etch is complemented by the comprehensive wine list, featuring an extensive collection of wines from around the world. Guests can also enjoy their modern take on classic cocktails, along with a variety of eclectic beers and regional drafts.

Our RSVP policy "When you rsvp yes for a meetup, we ask that you attend or change your rsvp to “no” no later than 24 hours prior to the event. This will allow an opportunity for other members to make a reservation/move from the waiting list to going or allow the event host to call the restaurant and lower the reservation number if necessary. If a member habitually doesn’t attend a reservation or cancels a few hours before the meetup which hurts the chances of others to attend, we may have to remove that member from the group. We also ask that members are courteous to staff at the restaurants we frequent to ensure our group will be welcomed back. Thanks!"
