What we're about
This group is for anyone that likes to try new (and old!) foods at establishments all around town with a great group of folks that enjoy food and conversation. Primarily focused on all different types of foods around and in Indianapolis (including surrounding counties). We have themed eats, like Burger Joints for example and try to get a mixture of Breakfast, brunch and dinner opportunities. The stuff part is that catch all for anything else that might be of interest!
We strive to be a very welcoming fun & food loving group with members from all walks of life. So don’t be shy and come join us for a meet-up soon, we would love to meet you in person.
Here are a few guidelines that we adopted to bring some order to the chaos:
Some of our events fill up rather quickly, but we encourage everybody to sign up for the wait list if an event interests you and you are available on that date. Often the original limits are just a starting point and we can often increase our reservations if there is a lot of interest in the event. Also often folks change their minds and spots become available.
If at any time you would like to become more involved with the group or are interested in hosting events yourself, please let a current member of the organizer team know.
Frequent and/or last minute cancellations:
Due to the nature of our group, we must work closely with restaurants and in order to maintain a good working relationship we are expected to provide an accurate headcount of guests. Many restaurants are very small and set aside half their restaurant for us and often bring in extra wait staff just for us. Sometimes they only have very limited space period. It is not fair to the restaurant and staff who set aside their resources and then have several empty seats.
Nor is it not fair to our loyal members who may not be able to attend an event, because spots are taken up by folks and then go empty.
While we are all aware that ‘things’ happen, we are asking you to try to give at least 48 hours notice if cancelling.
Please be aware, if you have a high rate of cancelling (especially at the last minute) and we have a waitlist, we may bump folks from the event to give preference to the more consistent members of the group and give new members a chance to attend.
Members with 3 no shows will forfeit future reservations. We do realize that sometimes things just go other than planned and are sympathetic; however, we will remove your name from all future events that you may be signed up for in order to make room for those trying to attend an event. If you are at some point interested in attending events again, contact one of the meet-up organizers and we will be happy to work with you and restore event eligibility.
The intent here is not to punish anyone ,but to be fair to those that want to attend event and can’t because reservations are taken by folks that consistently no show (that is no indication they aren’t coming).
