- House Party and Potluck
This will be in a private house (Kari's place)....Yes....Let's have a potluck and play some board games at the same time. I have tables set up in the living room and we can play cards or board games since I have quite a few. If board games aren't your thing then you can sit around and have a good chat with your fellow Wild Dining and International friends. We can accommodate 20 so sign up now. Please change your reservation if you cannot make it. Please don't be a NO-SHOW. It's been a while since we had a private event at a home, but those are some of my favorites. It's going to be cozy and fun.
- GreekTown Restaurant
This is an independent family owned Greek restaurant. We will have separate large tables with open menu. Our reservation is at 8:30, but feel free to sit at the bar for a drink. This was the only way I could get a large table on a weekend day without a set menu (which I don't care for). http://www.greektownrestaurant.com/ Please note, this is in co-joint with Wild Dining Members. https://www.meetup.com/Wild-Dining-Phoenix/ As always, please RSVP responsibly. Those with No Show record wont be guaranteed a seat. Hope to see you there!
