Are you aware that we require a clear profile photo of each member and that we have a "no-flakes" Rsvp policy? If your plans change a Yes Rsvp must be updated at least 24 hours before the Meetup. Not changing it will remove you from the group. Ok?
Serious foodie and wine lover looking for new friends
Meetup with other single food and wine lovers (most in their 30's and 40's) at restaurants in all price ranges that are rated the "Best In LA."
We notice outstanding food reviews from LA Magazine, LA Weekly, LA Times and Zagat and make reservations at those restaurants for our Meetup group. We also enjoy temples appearing in Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, as well as gourmet food trucks and brand new restaurants that are wonderful enough to be swooned over in the food press and blogosphere.
Being able to join us for many fabulous meals is easy! There are just two steps but you must complete both to join the group:
1. Take a moment to answer our profile questions about a few foodie topics. If you're a fan of great food and restaurants you'll be able to do it in no time.
2. Make sure there's a recent photo of yourself on your profile. Your profile photo should be a clearly recognizable photo of you. No other people in the photo. No illustrations or huge sunglasses that obscure your face please. No stock photos of movie stars, animals or trees and flowers please. So that everyone is more comfortable we should be able to easily recognize you at the Meetup from your profile photo.
Then, with the other members of this Meetup group you can explore places you "have been meaning to try" and enjoy fabulous meals and great conversation with fellow single and friendly food fans. We love to eat and socialize during fantastic meals at fabulous restaurants. Menu prices at our restaurants range from "dirt cheap" to "very expensive and worth every penny." It's always delicious either way!
This is a group of food and wine fanatics. Most of our members are active, sophisticated, urban professionals in their 30's and 40's. If you're a picky eater, we're NOT for you. But, if you enjoy reading a menu and seeing some ingredients that you've never even heard of before, you'll fit right in! If you enjoy the lovely experience of a truly great restaurant, of expanding your palate, of having familiar favorites prepared by the top chefs in Los Angeles, you'll feel right at home with this Meetup.
If you've ever driven miles on a mission to eat something fabulous...ever vacationed for food... ever felt like you could pass out from happiness after a particularly amazing meal-- you'll enjoy this Meetup. Join us! Thanks for checking us out. Bon appetit!
