All are welcome, you do not need a certain level of French to join us. In general, conversation is informal, therefore it is not necessary to speak in vous-form. We are a fun group, with all different levels of French. Come when you can come, and do not feel any shame or need to apologize if you can't make it! ) The worst is that we will miss your presence.
So there is no confusion, we are not meeting for a meal, but feel free to eat. You are not required to purchase anything, but if you can support our venue, it is appreciated. Also, the manager has requested that we fill out the surveys on our receipts (every 5th customer that spends over $5 gets one) and to please give him honest feedback. Filling out the survey also gives you a discount on your next purchase.
