Ward off Friday the 13th with Blue Bananas!

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

Come, paraskavedekatriaphobians...

Some oxtail stew and curry goat may help cure your fear of Friday the 13th. It may... But you'll only know for sure by sampling the soothing Caribbean cuisine yourself at the Blue Bananas Cafe. Just be careful. There'll be plenty of black cats waiting to cross your path...



There's great news at the Dining MeetUp ... we're growing! We have a lot of new members. Every event is filling up less than a couple of hours after it's posted. And so many people want to meet you that the Waitlist has more people on it than can attend in the first place. So to make sure the people who will attend can join us, we're going to start something new: RSVP CONFIRMATIONS.

2-3 DAYS PRIOR TO THE EVENT, I will send out an e-mail to THOSE WHO'VE RSVP'd "YES" and ask you to E-MAIL ME CONFIRMING THAT YOU'RE COMING. If you've RSVP'd "Yes" and you don't get back to me within 24 hours of the e-mailed confirmation request:
1) I'll presume you're not able to join us;
2) Your RSVP will be switched to "No;" and
3) Your spot will be given to a Waitlisted person who will definitely attend. WAITLISTING
Please never hesitate to Waitlist yourself if you want to attend, but all available seats are taken. When spots open up for an event, I e-mail the Waitlist. If you're among the first to respond and are committed to coming, I'll e-mail you back to confirm the spot is yours!

All that said...


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. *******


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).

Hope to see you there!

    The Company was great once again. So I had a very nice time.
    The food was o.k., the service was very slow.

    Friday the 13th still struck me...as I forgot my wallet and got a parking ticket! Luckily I laughed enough that night...so as not to be bothered by it:) The crabcakes and plantains were exquisitos! Can't wait for the next one:)

    We had a howlingly good time! I think our screaming laughter would have warded off any Friday the 13th bad mojo. Great food, adorable restaurant.
