This is a group of ladies ages range 25 and up that have a common desire to explore different types of cuisines while making new friends at the same time. We will meet monthly to try various restaurants/bars and food events that the Cleveland food scene has to offer. Get your food passport ready and let's travel the world through food and create new friendships in the process:)
The Meet Up site is making some changes to organizer fees and the way member dues are collected. First, they are raising the cost of organizer dues for groups larger than 50. They are also requiring us to use We Pal (Meet Ups version of Pay Pal) to collect member dues. It is my understanding that Meet Up will send you an email to remind you to pay your annual dues. They will also automatically remove you from the group if you have not paid your dues. If you are unable to pay online, I am making the option to pay cash at a Meet Up available. However, please be aware of when your individual membership fee due date is and be sure to attend an outing PRIOR so you are able to pay me in person and I have time to add it to the website before Meet Up removes you as a member for not paying. New members please contact me if there is a problem.
After running the group for over two and a half and attracting a lot of members but not participants, I hope these changes will ensure that our group be made up of serious and active participant while also helping cover the cost of site maintenance. Anything left over will go towards our annual pot luck supplies or any other misc items at other events. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Reservations are always made under Food Explorers. Ask a server or hostess to lead you to the Food Explorers table if you are having trouble finding us.
Please try to bring cash. Some restaurants may give us a hard time about splitting the bill up & using cash instead of credit cards. This will make it easier on them.
The main request I have is to please be courteous and accurate when RSVPing. Please keep in mind that I generally confirm the reservation the afternoon prior to the event. Please update your RSVP by leaving a comment stating you will still be attending or remove yourself from the attending list if you no longer can make it, by the afternoon prior to event or sooner.
3 no shows to our events will result in loss of membership. Due to excessive day of cancellations, day of cancellations will be considered a no show. I understand life happens and emergencies can arise. Please do your best to keep me informed of your situation. Thank you for your consideration.
I appreciate your continued support of our diverse group and lets make it another great year of traveling the world through food and creating new friendships in the process!
