You dont Want To Eat or You Want to Split a Dinner

You don't Want To Eat or You Want to Split a Dinner
If your plan is to attend the dinner, but not eat, then please just skip the dinner unless you want to put in evenly for the final bill. Same thing goes for "splitting" a single plate with someone else**. This just makes things more complicated for me and my assistant organizers to manage. Again, if you really want to do this, contact and get an OK from the organizer before proceeding with this plan.

** - Sharing two plates between two people is different and perfectly acceptable.

Part of the purpose of CDO is "Meet Up" social aspect of meeting people, but the other part of it that we are enjoying the cuisine of a restaurant that we want to try. We have a lot of members. As a result the Meetups fill up pretty quickly. Many people who want to attend dinners are unable to do so. By going to a dinner with a plan "not to eat", you are taking away a spot from someone else.
