Dinner at Tastee Diner

Friends, 

Jonathan and I have been really busy; we just got married!  It was a huge event, so it took all of our attention for a couple months.  We are sorry for the lack of events for this group.  It was not due to a lack of enthusiasm!  Now that thank-you notes are almost done, we are re-entering the social world, and would love to see everyone next Friday for dinner at Tastee Diner in Silver Spring.  This was the location of our first Meetup.  We understand that some of you live further away, so this might be a good Meetup for the Montgomery County MD folks.  There is a free parking garage right across the street from Tastee Diner.

Tastee Diner is very quiet, and much more relaxed than our last venue (sorry for those who had trouble hearing with all of the noise at Mi Rancho!).  The food is inexpensive and tasty:-)

PLEASE PLEASE RSVP if you are coming so we can plan the reservation/space accordingly.  I'm not sure the restaurant can handle a rush of 80 people without a heads up.  ALSO, this is a group for monogamous LGBT couples, not singles.  Sorry singles, but there are lots of group for you too!  And, we are very friendly to all four letters of LGBT, including T.  We know not all groups are Trans friendly, but we are intentionally so.

BTW, if you Google Tastee Diner, you will see that in the past they have not had the best record for LGBT friendliness.  However, they have definitely turned the corner, and were extremely welcoming to our group last time.

One thing we are noticing with this Meetup group is that there are two sub-groups that seem to be forming:  one for couples without kids and one for couples with kids.  We should definitely try to schedule a kid-friendly Meetup this summer.  I'm not sure this Friday's Meetup will be so kid-friendly given the crowded diner feel.  

Jonathan and I have funded the Meetup fees for this group during its first 6 months.  Just to be candid, Meetup charges the hosts $72 every 6 months.  If anyone would like to contribute a couple dollars, it would be great.  We have to renew our Meetup membership in the next few weeks.  Sorry to ask for money!

We also want to give a shout-out to our own Elizabeth McCain who has a one-woman show entitled, "A Lesbian Belle Tells".  Elizabeth did a few monologues from the show at our first Meetup, and it is absolutely fantastic - pee your pants and cry because you can't stop laughing level of humor!  Here is a link to the show:  https://www.facebook.com/events/642014432550753/

Hope to see you next Friday.

John

      We're not vegan, just vegetarian, and lean toward vegan. Vegetable Garden sounds great, but maybe not suitable for a group of 20. Wherever you pick is fine, we always find something to eat! We come for the company, not for the food :)

      Thanks Val. Last two Meetups have been about two hours long, so my guess is that we would be finishing up by then. Hope you can make one of our other Meetups.
