My name is Linda and I have recently taken over this group, formerly known as the San Mateo Dining Out Meetup. My idea for this group is to expand it beyond San Mateo. All the cities along the peninsula are within a few minutes of each other, each one easily accessible by Caltrain and parking is usually pretty abundant and free. All the dinners will have a maximum of 6 attendees to allow members to easily converse with each other.
Please observe a few simple rules—
1) Be on time.
2) No separate checks. I will calculate each person’s tab individually.
3) CASH ONLY!! NO EXCEPTIONS. Sometimes things get complicated when some people pay cash and some people pay with cards.
4) To RSVP for events, I will require a $5 deposit. I’ve had too many no shows and cancellations in the past few events to let it slide. Attendees will get their $5 back when they show up. No shows and cancellations less than 48 hours will forfeit their deposit.
Thank you and join me as we explore the diversity of restaurants in our little corner of the bay!
O Sole Mio was a family owned restaurant originally in San Francisco's Marina district, but now they've moved down to this side of the bay. It's a typical old school Italian American eatery--think grapevines on the ceiling, red and white checked tablecloths and classic Italian songs from the 40s and 50s playing in the background. They really put a lot of care into bringing to life an ethnic restaurant from a bygone era.
All attendees will be required to pay a $5 deposit when they rsvp. The $5 will go towards your meal. If you no show or cancel within 48 hours of the event, you will forfeit your deposit.
