This group is for folks who can get away weekdays for a couple hours midday, for some schmoozing! Maybe you have a flexible work schedule, or are retired, or the kids are in school? Join us for interesting conversation, and some of our region's best lunch specials!
We go to ethnic places, new restaurants, or anywhere that a member might convince us to try. We visit both inexpensive places and some fancier ones. Most places will have vegetarian options. Sometimes we do a picnic.
But this is not necessarily a "foodie" group... we're not looking for the latest four-star place. We're in it more for the friendship and a nice interlude to the day, of which the food is part. Also this is not necessarily a singles group... all relationship statuses are welcome.
At each meetup, usually there are some regulars and some first-timers, so don't be shy. Although we are listed in Paramus, that is only because Meetup.com requires us to enter a home location; we aim to organize lunches throughout the region. But nothing in NYC... this group is for people who spend their days west of the Hudson River!
Our outings usually are lunch Monday-Friday, but we may do a weekend brunch now and then.
Unlike some other meetups, this group has no hidden agenda. The organizer is not selling anything, or promoting any business. To help cover Meetup.com's ongoing fees, we ask members to contribute $1 per lunch attended. Plus the cost of your lunch, of course!
Our events tend to be biased toward Bergen County, because that's where the density of population is, and so we usually get a good turnout there. But this group is meant for more folks than that! So I'll try to get out west or south a little more... starting with another visit to Chengu 23 in Wayne.
Also sorry for the short notice! The weather looks good for being out on the highways Wednesday! Planning a week or more ahead in January doesn't always work out so well, weather-wise!
After lunch, those interested are invited to walk across the parking lot to Starbucks for coffee and dessert.
Note that, although the address says Willowbrook Blvd, the restaurant is *not* in the big mall, but nearby in a strip shopping center (next to Home Goods).

We will ask for separate checks, plus $1 toward Meetup.com organizer expenses.
