What we're about

We've been enjoying meals together since July 1, 2017.

This is a group for anyone interested in getting out and enjoying all the awesome restaurants in and around St. Charles County. We mainly go to St. Charles, St. Peters, and O'Fallon, but we've had a few Meetups in Augusta/Defiance, Cottleville, and even St. Louis.

We have begun to have meals together again, however due to COVID, we're following safety restrictions such as outdoor meals and small group sizes. Until we get back to regular events, dues have been suspended.

THIS IS WHAT WE'RE NORMALLY ABOUT:

I have my favorites - I'm sure you do too. Suggestions from members are not only welcome, they're encouraged!

One way we're different than many other dining out groups is that the restaurants that are chosen are not necessarily my personal favorites. In fact, we often go to restaurants I've never tried (and one that's loved by many members but I don't like)! When you join, you'll have an opportunity to tell me your personal favorites. (You can always add to your list later.) When I schedule our Meetups, I'll select a restaurant suggested by someone born during that month. Occasionally, I'll list several restaurants that have been suggested by quite a few members and ask our "Dining Out Foodies" to vote where we should go.

I try to make our Meetups a mix of dinners, lunches, brunches, and breakfasts; a mixture of inexpensive and more pricey Meetups; a mixture of cuisines; and a mixture of days throughout the week. I also try to schedule a couple Meetups a year that aren't strictly eating out at a restaurant or in St. Charles County. We went to the Whitmond House in Brussels, Illinois and had parties in January and July.

Be sure to check out our scheduled Meetups. I'm sure you'll see some you would like. If not, why not let me know where YOU would like to go??? I'll be sure to add it to the calendar.

I generally schedule at least one Meetup per week - often two, except around the winter holidays.

Let's share our current favorite restaurants, find new ones, and make new friends along the way.

Our yearly dues are $5.00 payable at the first Meetup you attend. There are no dues to be a member if you don't attend a Meetup. $5.00 covers membership in all three of my groups.

SINCE WE HAVE TO PLACE RESERVATIONS FOR ALL OUR MEETUPS, IT'S VERY IMPORTANT WE HAVE AN ACCURATE COUNT OF THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WILL ATTEND. Members who RSVP yes but do not attend (a no show), make our Meetup look bad in the eyes of restaurant owners, force restaurant owners to save table space they could use for paying customers and bring in extra workers, and make members who attend wait for you. THEREFORE, ANY MEMBER WHO IS A NO SHOW 3 TIMES WILL BE PERMANENTLY REMOVED FROM THE GROUP.

Monthly Meal - Somewhere in St Charles County

Needs a location

For the foreseeable future, we'll choose a restaurant in St. Charles County every month. We'll go back to Monthly Meal on Main once we can have weekly meals again :)

This is a combined event with We're Havin Fun so we will usually have more in attendance than listed on this page. Out of an abundance of caution (I'll be SOOOOOOO glad to never say that phrase again!), I'll request the restaurant seat us at tables of 4-5.
