Together let's enjoy some wonderful food, have some good wine, and have a great time exploring new restaurants, happy hours, concerts, live music, wine tasting and any other events our members might enjoy. Please feel free to make suggestions.
This group will include single/divorced men and women looking for a successful relationship with someone in our area. We are not a hook-up site, please refrain from contacting members directly on the Meetup site. Wait for a planned event. Additionally, you must post a *recognizable* picture of yourself. Babies, pets, cars, boats, sunsets, etc are all cute but will not work as a picture of you.
Many of the activities will be organized around food and wine and take place at local upscale restaurants in Redlands or within a 35 mile radius. Please remember that each individual is responsible for covering their own food and drink bill. Also, please remember that although we do drink during our events this is not a "party group". Please drink responsibly.
I insist this group be a comfortable and safe environment for both men and women to get to know each other. If any member is found to be disrespectful, dishonest, or threatening to any other member they will be removed from the group. Group rules as well as an indemnity clause are outlined below.
Our 5 Rules of Courtesy
1) This is not a commercial site. No business may join. You may not promote your business, solicit our members, or try to sell any product.
2) No member may harass, bother or annoy (to extreme) any other member.
3)Members are expected to be honest about their marital status, age, and employment. Members found to be lying will be promptly removed from the group.
4)You are responsible for your RSVP to our Events. Many of our events are at small privately owned restaurants and our events are now often full and have a waiting list. Please have respect for the venue and those members on the waiting list. People on the waiting list do not automatically move up after the cutoff. You must change your RSVP no later than 2 days before the event at 5pm unless there is an emergency. I will call the venue that evening to confirm our reservations. Last minute RSVP changes will be kept track of from this moment on. After the second one in you will have to confirm you RSVP by email with me the week of and before the cutoff or your name will be removed from the event. After one no show, you will have to personally confirm your RSVP with me as well. The second no show to an event in a 6 month period will cause you to lose your membership.
5) If you act badly, you reflect on our entire membership/ group. That will not be tolerated. Therefore, every member gets -ONE- warning if they break any of these rules.
Indemnity Agreement Clause
Indemnity Agreement: By joining our meetup group you agree to hold Redland's Singles for the Food and/or Wine Enthusiast and it's organizer, April, and Co-organizers free from liability or responsibility what so ever with regard to any negligent or intentional conduct of any third party including but not limited to Restaurants, Lounges, Social Venues, Tour Groups, Bus Company, Travel Agency, Hotels, Cruise Lines, Air Lines, Bowling Alleys, Movie Theaters and other meetup venues, etc., resulting in the loss of personal property, physical injury, monetary loss with regard to an event/meetup. In signing up, paying and attending any of our listed events you are in agreement to the above. If you RSVP a guest to the event they are also in agreement to the Indemnity Agreement stated above.
My first suggestion is to hide your interests and list of other meetups. On the right side of your profile page above the list, click on hide or show to make changes.
I also suggest that you change your settings so that only the organizers are able to contact you here in this group. You can also adjust it so that only members can contact you. To adjust who can email you, go to your picture at the very top right hand corner in the red and white Meetup Bar. Here you will find a drop down menu. Now choose settings on the menu. At the bottom of the page you will find a question about who can contact you and who can post greetings to your profile. Make changes here.
Lastly, there is a social media setting on this page. I suggest not linking social media sites such as Facebook where you may have personal information that you may not want everyone to see.
