Welcome Friends, new and veteran, to our Food and Laughs group!
F&L started back in 2011 and is still going strong. We’re enthusiasts of fun and good food, ie. we don’t count carbs. Our events are theme-based and may be ethnic, holiday, historic, and/or exotic. We gather in Rochester area member homes or other venue, usually (but not always) on a Saturday evening.
Members are required to take a turn hosting a minimum of 8 people, though most events average 12. HOWEVER, if you don’t have the space to host, you may choose to organize an event at another member’s larger home, a local restaurant, a public park/shelter, or even a seasonal festival.
Given our # of members and to allow greater participation, we are going to try having two events each month. Here’s how it works:
As Host, you choose a theme and set details of your event, ie. Location, date, time, # of guests. One of our Organizers posts your event on the F&L page. Once RSVPs open, members may respond. If all spots fill before you get a chance to RSVP, you are put on a wait list. (Members are responsible for checking the F&L page for upcoming events and RSVP dates.) ‘Going’ means commitment to attend. Confirmed attendees post a dish to be shared.
While we understand life happens, please be considerate by updating your RSVP in time for menu adjustments and, more importantly, to allow wait-listed people the opportunity to attend.
Fine Print: Food & Laughs is a low-drama group of neat people who enjoy socializing, laughter, and good food. Events are BYOB; responsible drinking is required. We are not a dating or business solicitation forum. Members are to treat each other with consideration and respect. Any member determined to be unhealthy for the group will be removed. $6 annual, non-refundable dues are collected to cover Meetup site costs. Dues must be paid within the 60-day trial period in order to become/stay an active member.
