What we're about

We’re a social group of people who enjoy good food, interesting people, and a good environment for mingling. So, if you are looking to get out and meet new couples, this is the place to be. In our group, you will meet with other couples for dinner in the Sarasota area at some really nice restaurants where you can put on the Ritz as well as maybe meet for pizza and beer. We try to do at least one dinner out each month, including two big beach parties per year.

Members are nearly all in the “over 45” age group; about half are retired. There are dues of $20 per couple per year, to cover costs of this site, name tags, room charges and other expenses. When you sign up, you’re a trial member until you pay your annual dues through Meetup.

Please note: We need/want only one registration per couple. In everything we do, we assume that the person registering for an event is one half of a couple. So if you and your other both join, then both sign up for a dinner, that would be counted as four attending. But there's only two of you. So, please only one profile or RSVP per couple.

Beach Party will return when it's safe!

Parking Lot Lido

It would be a miracle for events to improve enough that we could go ahead with a fall beach party. So we're now just hanging in and hoping for good news on being able to get together again. I've plugged in a place holder date above. Let us pray that we'll be able to party then. We obviously have nothing planned near term. But Jay and I hope that you'll want to continue with our little group of dining adventurers when we can resume hosting events for 40 to 50 people. The Beach Party has proven to be such a hit -- and so much fun -- that we're going to keep on doing it. It's far and away our biggest event in numbers, and such a great, casual place to get acquainted. I'll post when we can resume, and will email everyone that we've come back to life. In the meantime, stay safe and stay healthy.
