The purpose of our group is to share central Phoenix cultural, food and entertainment venues for anyone interested in meeting and sharing time with friendly people. As a result, we support the growing art, music, restaurant and club scene in central Phoenix. Please feel free to suggest your downtown/Central Phoenix favorite. We have expanded our area to "general" Phoenix due to the parking meter changes in downtown Phoenix. We prefer to choose venues with ample free parking.
Most of the venues where we schedule events reserve seating and add extra staff to accommodate our group. With that in mind, your attendance when you RSVP to an event is a courtesy to the venue and the other members of the group. When there is a waiting list and you don't show after you RSVP, a person on the waiting list is uselessly precluded from attending. Failing to show for any event casts a negative light on our group as a whole when we do not fulfill our reservation obligations. Failing to show at any 2 events will result in your removal from the group. Please be respectful to others. If you are unable to show, simply change your RSVP.
Please be aware that this is a social group, not a networking group. Passing out business cards or brochures at events in order to promote businesses is prohibited.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
