Discover Carbondale is interested in tasting food, wine & meeting new people in this beautiful region that is known as "Little Egypt."

Eating have always been a social activity, but more & more we are becoming isolated, sometimes within our family & close-friends.. Let's change that trend..

Let's stop the boredom of eating alone, sticking with the same habit or dining the same way..

Let's revive our appetite & sense of discovery & build a friendly group around exploring menus & having fun rating restaurants, coffeehouses, food-festivals, bars, wineries, etc.


We are always looking forward to meeting new tasters..

[[everyone is free to attend or skip any meetup.. the group has one meetup every other week.. Sometimes the tasters set multiple-meetups on the same day or week**]]

*this is not related in any fashion to The Home Depot "Let's do this" advertising campaign :)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
