Guidelines for posting events!

Marianne

So you want to help the group by posting & hosting events? Thanks! That’s great!

Here are some guidelines to make it easier for you:


1) If you post an event we expect you to host it. That means you make the reservation at the restaurant (if needed) and that you will be there to gather people together. This is why we discourage restaurants and vendors from posting directly, because we require an actual host to gather people. The point of this group is to get people to “meetup” together, not to advertise events.


2) There are tons of beer tastings/foodie events in NYC and CT on any given day. We can’t go to everything, nor are we a listing service for them. Please only post events that you are planning to attend and are willing to host.


3) Please have a specific event in mind. It needs to have a concrete location, day and start time. If it is a restaurant, you should call and make a reservation before posting the event to ensure they can accommodate the group.


4) If this all seems like too much, email Marianne and she will help you post it. Again, if you want something posted, it needs to have a location, a day and a time. Blanket suggestions are not really helpful, because I do not know what days YOU are available. I’d hate to schedule a restaurant/bar that you want to visit on a day when you are not available.


I know this list sounds picky, but we haven’t had many suggestions turn into successful events and I want to increase the odds. More people posting events means more meetups, more fun and more chances for the group to get together. Let’s do it!

Please note that continued abuse of this policy will result in events being removed, members being removed and possibly the removal of the setting that allows members to post events.

This is not a place for bars/restaurants to advertise. This is a group for people to hang out with each other and meet together. If you want to list an event and not host it, then please use the message board.

reminder - hosts and helpers always needed. Bars and restaurants contact me EVERY DAY asking for the group to come. I can't fit them all in my personal schedule, so if you have time to help coordinate or host, please let me know.
