How many restaurants are there in the Orlando area?

I have no idea, but I do know there are many unique and fun restaurants that I have never tried, and that I would never try alone. Thus....the birth of this group. Let's try them together!

Come to a local Dining Out Meetup to break bread with fellow foodies and gourmets. Discover new restaurants, enjoy delicious meals and make satisfying conversation with friendly dinner companions. We will go to budget-friendly places as well as fine dining. We will have traditional American fare, as well as trying cuisines from around the world.

Please note that I will never charge you a fee for joining this group, as some other organizers have begun to do. Yes, I do pay a fee to Meetup in order to keep this group active, but I will not pass that charge along. What I do ask of you, however, is that you keep your RSVP's current. If you RSVP "yes" for an event and later find you cannot make it, please change your response to "no." It is very important, especially in this type of group, that we have an accurate count of people attending, as we make reservations. If you RSVP "yes," we will be expecting you and holding a spot for you. Often there may be a waiting list for a particular event, so again it is important that you keep your RSVP current. Thanks for your help in making this the best group it can be!  We do require that all new members have a recent photo of themselves (their face) on their profile. This is so that we (the organizers) can recognize you when you attend an event. If you have an issue (security, job, etc) that prevents you from publicizing a photo, you can privately email one to the organizer, just contact us through the group page.

Please note that we are strictly a social group. Members who join with the intention of using the group to promote their own businesses or personal interests will be removed from the group. I'm sorry that I actually have to state that, but we've been bombarded lately with instances of people attempting to use the group to increase traffic/revenue/publicity for their own businesses. Because of that, we ask that you use your real name (first name only is fine) - not one that includes the name of your business or other organizations that you are promoting. Also, we will not send out irrelevant emails.  I get requests all the time to promote businesses, events, etc.  Anyone reading this group description who may be considering asking me to do so, we will not.  The only emails that our members will get from me or any of our organizers relate directly to this group.  Please do not expect us to solicit this group for singles events, charity events, business networking events or promotional events.  We are strictly a social group, and we just want people to come and make friends and have FUN!.  I myself have made so many amazing friends, and any connection over and above that is up to the individual members.

We are a great group of people who obviously have dining in common, and we also have a lot of fun. Please join us!
