Our meet up group is about meeting new people, enjoying good seafood, getting to know each other, thru the common bond of being gathered around a big table and enjoying lite conversation & delicious food.
You should join us if you enjoy getting to know people & are willing to go past the usual conversation starters of what's your name & what do you do...you should join if you are open to learn, share and have an open mind.
We will eat / dine at mostly mid priced restaurants. I will be looking for dinner specials on seafood when possible, nothing too fancy.
Although we will be primarily at resturants that have items like; Lobster, crab, mussels, clams, oysters, steamers, shrimp, fish...You are welcome to enjoy anything on the menu. My criteria for choosing restaurants is that they have a minimum of 60% seafood on the menu. Everyone pays for the food and drink(s) that they order, Plus tax and tip, there could be an additional charge for parties of 8 or more. Always bring plenty of cash in a variety of denominations to settle your bill. I will always attempt to get separate checks however not all restaurants will do this. Please settle your bar tab at the bar before we're seated. Let's meet and enjoy some seafood!
We will NOT have conversations regarding the following subjects. Politics, Medical issues, Religion, Taxes. We're looking for positive conversation.
Do not pass out or share business cards or promote a business or service.
No photographs to be taken unless i am asked BEFORE the event starts, unless I make a exception, I / we respect those who do not want their picture taken...just tell me, it's OK!
Do not email or spam members of my meet up groups., unwanted communication must be reported to the administrator, ( Hugh ) - this hasn't been a issue, I just wanted to address this.
Do not email people you have never met., we are not a dating group, we and meetup.com are about friendship.
Attendance; after 2 no shows you will be removed from this group.
Cancellations, you must cancel / change your RSVP to NO preferably by 9 pm the night before the event or at the latest before 12 noon on the day of the event, or you will be removed from the group. ( to let me adjust the wait list & for those who can now potentially attend, sufficient time to reply if they are still available, & for me to update with the restaurant )
FYI, these restaurants are in the business of making $ money $ !! they do get unhappy / really upset / and angry when people do not show up!
I then have to deal with the waitstaff, owners, and or the maitre d'
