Four courses, four different sets of dinner partners, and four discussion questions to challenge you to open your heart, open your ears, and make genuine connections with new friends. Be open! Be honest! Be brave! You only gain as much as you risk!

This is a single's/available's only event.

This Covers:
- Dinner consisting of 4 courses
- Entry into the game
Tickets must be pre-purchased online (no tickets at the door)



• The dinner consists of 4 courses. (We start at 7:30pm)

• Each course goes for 20 minutes and there is a 5-10 minute interval between each.

• At each course, you will be sat in a different set of 4 dining partners.

• With each course, you will be offered a question to be explored with your dinner partners Beware! These questions will lead you into conversations that you would never expect to be having on a first meeting with a new friend! They may be intimate, strange, complex, revealing, or even a little confronting. Forget about the usual “what do you do for a living” chit-chat, these questions will challenge you to risk a little more of yourself.

• All participants must pledge to respect the secrets of their dining partners. What is said at the table, stays at the table!

• HERE'S THE IMPORTANT PART... You are encouraged to take risks and answer questions boldly, honestly and from the heart. You only gain as much as you risk! If you pretend to be someone else, you will end up with friends, that are suited to someone else. If you answer questions shallowly, you will make shallow connections. Be brave!

Tickets are non-refundable, however, you can re-sell tickets on the event message board.
