The Denver Adventurous Eaters Club is for people who are not afraid to try new and unusual foods, and will most likely go back for seconds after they do. No meat, no spice, no region and no texture is off limits. Those who join the group can expect to dine at some of the area's more challenging culinary establishments; as well as do a little cooking and learning about the world of bizarre food. You're certainly not expected to like everything you try, but at least try it! Discussions of great food experiences are highly encouraged, as are ideas and suggestions for future Adventurous Eaters Club meetups. This is not an eating contest-- we are looking for people who genuinely appreciate adventurous foods as cuisine.
You might think twice about joining this group if any of the following apply to you:
You consider yourself a picky eater.
You're a "meat and potatoes" type.
You like your steak well done.
You only eat white meat.
You've ever asked to see a vegetarian menu.
You hate fish.
Taco Bell is too spicy for you.
You wouldn't be caught dead eating liver, let alone Rocky Mountain oysters.
The thought of an anchovy on your pizza or salad turns your stomach.
You would never eat a rodent, amphibian or reptile.
You don't like them "foreign foods".
You won't eat things with bones in them.
You wouldn't think of ever trying roast duck chins, pork stomach soup, sliced beef heart, tempura shrimp heads, braised chicken feet, or any other part, piece or particle not available at the Cracker Barrel.
I think you get the idea. Up for it? Here are the necessary, but simple enough rules we (unfortunately) must enforce:
*Participants must RSVP "Yes" or "No" to any event, no "Maybes" allowed (failure to RSVP is the same as "No")
*Participants must RSVP 24 hours before any meetup. Otherwise, any restaurant reservation or spot in the kitchen for that person cannot be guaranteed. The earlier the better when it comes to RSVPing.
*The FIRST time a group member is a no-call/no-show for a meetup to which he or she has RSVPed "Yes", that person will be removed from the group. It sounds harsh, but not showing once one has RSVPed "Yes" is bad business towards restaurants where reservations are required, a waste of money/food if groceries are purchased for a cooking session, and rude to fellow group members. It also creates undue stress on the meetup organizer, and we definitely can't have that. RSVPs can always be changed via the website once they're made, and a cell phone call to the meetup organizer is acceptable in a pinch.
*Anyone who turns picky will be ridiculed mercilessly (Not exactly a necessary rule, but funny).
That's not too much to ask, now is it?
OK-- you've passed the "Does not apply" test, and are willing to follow the rules. Ready to get adventurous? Join the Denver Adventurous Eaters Club!
