If you are looking to get out and meet new couples, this is the place to be. 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 burgers and beer. We try to do at least one dinner out each month. There are no dues, although we do ask for donations to help cover costs of this site, name tags and other expenses. The only expectation is to have fun as you make new acquaintances.
Please note: We need/want only one registration per couple. In everything we do, we assume that the person registering for a dinner 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.
If you want to host an outing, or suggest a restaurant that would accommodate us, that would be wonderful. Please let us know your ideas.
Jay has arranged a special event as a change of pace for our group. We’ll be doing the “Mummies, Mayhem & Murder in Sarasota” tour, a 1-1/2 hour trolley tour with a spellbinding interactive narration.
The complication is that we have to pay by next Monday, Sept. 23. And since neither Jay nor I want to lay out the fee for 36 people, here’s how we’re going to do it:
1 Do your RSVP on line, as always. But you have to sign up by end of day Friday, Sep. 20. Max number is 36 people.
2 Make out a check for $50 per couple to Rex Wilmore.
3 Mail the check to Rex to arrive no later than Monday Sept. 23. Mail to Rex Wilmore, 850 Molly Circle, Sarasota, FL 34232. Rex will handle the payment for the group. Any late arriving checks will be returned later.
4 If the check isn’t received by Sept. 23, any unpaid RSVP on our Meetup site will be cancelled.
5 There will be no refunds or new reservations after Sept. 23, for any reason whatsoever.
6 Yes, it’s a PITA. But that’s the way it has to be.
Once aboard the trolley (bus), sit back and listen as Seva, our passionate, informative, and entertaining tour guide, exposes the spooky side of town, Keep an eye out for surprise guests along the way!
This memorable haunted tour brings the rich history of Sarasota to life! Pass by the Sarasota Opera House, a historic theatre in the hub of downtown Sarasota. Renowned as one of Sarasota’s most haunted venues, this theatre is said to be home to a friendly ghost, whose shuffling footsteps can be heard throughout the night.
The bus leaves at 8, but as you wait to load, you’ll enjoy complimentary beer or wine at the Trolley Cottage Tiki Bar.
Even though we haven’t set up a planned dinner, we’ll likely try to set up an informal “join us to eat” somewhere near the Trolley Cottage. I'm thinking the Mandeville Beer Garden. We’ll let participants know where we might gather.
So, sign up now. Forward those checks to Rex. And prepare to enjoy chills up your spine!
