For People 21-49ish Years Old (trying to stay under 50, but if you have spouses, significant others, or close friend over all means bring them!).  Every week we pick one restaurant in Santa Monica to dine at until we've been to every restaurant in town.  We DO NOT include national fast food chains, but will include smaller Mom and Pop type places and local chains when appropriate;  choosing 1 dive restaurant a month, at least 1 ethnic restaurant a month, and 1 high end ($$$$).

Because reservations are often required and out of respect for the restaurants that save us the tables,  only people who show up after RSVPing remain members of this group. Should you miss two RSVP'd events, we remove you from the group!

Please note: you are responsible for your own bill for your meal and drinks. Whenever possible we will have separate checks per person or for small groups so that there is no confusion.  (most often we are shooting for 1 check per 4 people)

FYI- We OFTEN eat family style so you may try a lot of options, this dramatically reduces the cost at most places.  Our individual price, without drinks, has been around $22-$32 a week...usually on the lower end!
