Welcome to Good Eats & Meets. What was started as a group of people breaking bread over dinners with a handful of members, has grown into the LARGEST group of its kind not only in Charlotte (our home city), but the country! We now have Good Eats and Meets groups in 6 cities...Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbia, Greenville, Miami and Washington DC, with Asheville and Charleston coming soon.  The success of this group is totally dependent on the members. So, if you're looking for a virtual social group, this is not it!!!  We are VERY active and hope that you join Good Eats and Meets and that you can take part in any one of our many events soon.

Are you ready to explore all that Columbia has to offer in the culinary world? Whether it's testing the "Best of Columbia" restaurants, sampling the "greasy spoons", road trips, tastings, parties or putting the 120 item buffet to it's test, this group is for adventurous people that enjoy sharing a meal and great conversation.

So, if you are:
* A foodie
* Looking to meet others that love food
* Want to try new places to eat, drink and socialize
* Looking for some hidden food gems in Columbia & surrounding areas
* Want to sample other cuisines
* Excited about all the new food destinations in town
* Adventurous and social-road trips, tastings, house parties, dinner parties, etc.

Then, you will have loads of fun with Good Eats & Meets-Columbia
