Table for Six at Canlis

Perhaps against my better judgement (lol), I would like to host monthly Tables for Six. I have always felt that the perfect dinner party consists of six people, intimate enough for close conversation, diverse enough for an interesting mix, ideal for sharing 2 bottles of wine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most of these events will be held on weekends at upscale, unique venues. The plan is to mix it up a bit, by age, gender, background, and novelty. Because the group is so small, you might only be able to come 2-3 times in a year, so please don't feel offended if you get moved down.

Hopefully, this will also encourage you to sign up for restaurants that you are really passionate about. I will keep a plus one to flesh out the group for a colorful evening.

I will retain the right to enforce the no-show rule. Please contact me ASAP in case of an emergency or an exhausting day in surgery...
Will you join me on this culinary adventure?

      Hi, Rhonda, Just to let you know, if you hadn't signed up for this event, your name would not have been on the waiting list. When attendees cancel, the waiting list moves up. Hopefully, this information will be of use to you in the future. Yours, Karen

    Karen - babs here. Going to honor your 24 hour rule and cancel. I so so want to go- have lived here since the late 1980's and never been but I got back yesterday from a biz trip to St Louis and I'm still beat. I may be normal feeling by then but respect your rule.

    We've had some changes. Please be kind and honor the 24 hour rule. Failing to do so could prevent you from attending future Tables for Six. Thank you for your considerateness.

      Unfortunately the sore throat returned this morning and coughing didn't get any better, will have to try my luck next time. Hope you all have a great time!

    I am so sorry to cancel as Canlis is one of my favorite dining destinations but I have a very, very elderly family member that is ill. Early flight out tomorrow morning to GA. Have fun to the person who takes my place. My apologies.

      My thoughts are with you.

      Hope everything comes through for your family.

    I have been sick for a few days and would hate to infect anyone with my bug.
    I haven't been to Canlis yet and was looking forward to this Saturday. Hope you have a wonderful dinner.

    Hello, everyone, as you may recall, one of the other organizers inadvertantly changed my group number to 8. Helena and Cynthia were bumped, so they got first dihs, and Helena accepted the spot. Remember, I am going to spread it around!

    Hey, I just was notified about there being an open spot at this event. I was on the waiting list. How do I join?

    Hi Claudette, Yes, please count me in. I am third on the wait list. Looking forward to a Monday night get together. This will be fun.
    Thank you for organizing this. Cheers, Jan

  • Cynthia

    Dang it! I was secretly hoping that although it said 6 and I was 8 that I'd made it under the wire!
    Sigh- next time!

  • Claudette

    Hey all, I asked Karen if I can do an encore of her dinner and she agreed. Unfortunately I found I have other plans for that weekend, so I've made reservations for the following Monday. Hope you can make a weekday dinner. I'm announcing here first before the rest of the group to give those on the wait list first dibs. RSVP at: http://www.meetup.com/seattletruefoodies/events/109165392. May announce to the group tomorrow or Friday, if necessary. Just ask that you commit to your RSVP 36 hours before since the hosts are charged for cancellations.

    Dear everyone, Thank you so much for your kind enthusiasm. I was really afraid noone would sign up! To those of you who didn't make the list, and especially Helen and Cynthia (someone somehow edited my party to 8 and the reservation is for 6!), please know that I will be careful to mix it up each month. I will try to be as fair as I can in making sure everyine gets an opportunity to attend these small events. I am really trying to create an exerience, not to make it exclusive. Keep your eyes open for next month. Helen and Cynthia, you will have first dibs on the wait list if anyone drops out. I truly apologize for any disappointment!
