Pop Quiz Hotshot: What's the origin of that phrase? (answer below)

While you chew on that, here's something else for you to chew on: GREEK FOOD!

We will be dining at Zorba's Tavern at 2230 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia. Mmmm, Soutzoukakia and Souvlaki and Avgolemono, oh my!

Join us for an evening of delicious Greek food at Zorba's - Anthony Quinn would be proud!

Note: Zorba's is BYOB, so if you want any booze, you have to BYO!

Pop Quiz Answer:
Casca in Julius Caesar, by William "Don't call me Billy" Shakespeare, Act 1 Scene 2

Actual Quote: "...but those that understood him smiled at 375 one another and shook their heads; but, for mine own part, it was Greek to me."

QUICK NOTE about RSVPing:

PLEASE ONLY RSVP "YES," IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO ATTENDING THE DINNER.

Please use the "MAYBE" option, if: 1. You're unsure of whether or not you can make the dinner; or
2. You're not totally committed to coming. (You can always change it later.)

IF YOU RSVP "MAYBE," please confirm "YES" or "NO" as soon as possible because events fill up quickly. In order to accommodate members who want to attend the event (but didn't get to RSVP as quickly), RSVPs still listed as "MAYBE" two days before the event will automatically default to "NO" to make room for other potential attendees.

By the same token, the site will not accept "MAYBE" RSVPs within the two days prior to the event. (At that point, new RSVPs that list themselves as "Maybe" are automatically defaulted to "No" as well.)

THE DETAILS

Usual rules apply...

Three quick things you need to know:
1) Make sure you RSVP right away since our reservation is limited to 15 people.
2) To help defray the costs of the website, $1 will be added to your bill at the restaurant. Small price to pay for great food and great company!
3) If you happen to arrive at the restaurant before I do, the reservation is in my name (Charles).

RSVP & Waitlisting
One final note ... Please stay true to your RSVP. If you don't think you can make it make it, please change your RSVP, so others can join in the fun. (Likewise, if you want to participate in the event, but it's already filled up with "Yes"s and "Maybe"s; the site now offers a feature that lets you Waitlist yourself. Use that option; and I'll contact you if any spaces open up, giving you the opportunity to jump in and RSVP "Yes.")

    The people were friendly, smart, well educated, and even funny!

    I would not recommend ordering the fish though...unless you are really prepared to look at a whole fish on your plate. Yes, I do realize that in some countries it is considered a delicacy.

    I had a great time - wasn't sure what to expect, but was blown away by the diversity, great conversation and excessive laughter. Will definitely meet up with this group again.

    Great time. I think one of our first timers summed it up best when she said: "This was great. I have to admit, I had really low expectations coming here, but this totally exceeded them!" High praise indeed...The Dining Out Meetup: We exceed low expectations! :-)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
