What we're about
http://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/7/1/6/event_433141814.jpeg Hi there!
Do you enjoy discovering new/offbeat or classic independent/foreign films and discussing them with other film lovers? Do you also love trying new types of food and wine?
If so, come join us!
We are a group of young film, food & wine buffs (mostly early 30's to early 40's) who live in the city, and get together several times a month in a private, relaxed setting with comfy seating and large screen TV, for film, food & wine parties.
We romp around the globe, pairing up foreign (sometimes just indie) films with foreign wines, and sometimes vodka, rum and whiskey, (hey...apparently they can't grow grapes in Denmark), along with appetizers, side dishes and desserts.
Since we meet in private homes and want to create an environment where everyone really gets a chance to talk to each other, our events are typically limited to 10 - 12 guests, who each come on their own.
Our set-up is a wonderful way to meet new people who share the same interests and spark thought-provoking and passionate conversations. And sometimes we just laugh our butts off.
Each event has its own special twist for the wine & food, and everyone attending brings something that complements the film.
Our goal is to create a fun-themed dinner party around a movie....and the end result is often pretty amazing, as we have some super-talented chefs among us, who often whip up masterpieces that are truly a treat. But no worries at all if you don't cook! Picking up something on the way is just fine.
We're also always happy to find new hosts for future events. All that's required is a space in NYC (Manhattan-Brooklyn-Queens) that can comfortably seat at least 8 guests, a large (37"+) screen and be open to welcoming an eclectic & interesting group of film-food-wine lovers into your home.
If this sounds like a group you might enjoy, sign on up! We can't wait to meet you!
