Dear Brunch Group Members,
For the last two years, all of the brunches have been thoroughly enjoyable. We've met wonderful people and found great restaurants.
Unfortunately, we had a situation at our Thanksgiving event that we wanted to mention to all our members. This event was held at Vidalia. One participant ordered $80 worth of food and drink. When the bill came, he only had $20. The organizers were put in an awkward position and while stunned, we ultimately paid the difference of his meal.
The organizers have asked to be reimbursed, and he has not replied to the request. As a result, he has been removed from the group.
In the future, if this situation occurs again, we will involve the restaurant management to resolve the payment issue. In addition, we reserve the right to share this person's name with other Meetup group organizers and members. We will also add a label to the individual's profile to indicate the person did not pay, and we will remove the person from the group.
While we can't imagine this would ever occur again, we are not in a position to cover members' meals. We do appreciate your understanding and look forward to many more enjoyable brunch events.
Julia, Jill and Keilly
