Hi everyone, Table for 6 is on hold until we're past this covid situation, whenever that may be. Feel free to join the group here in the meantime. Be safe & healthy. Look forward to dining with strangers again soon!! ~Somer
Dining with strangers is fun. Seriously.
I wanted to start this Meetup because I absolutely love meeting new people, but found the larger Meetups to be a bit too overwhelming. What if I'm not really that into hiking... or chihuahuas... or boozefests? In "Table for 6" we'll set up monthly dinners for -- you guessed it -- you and 5 others. We'll explore approachable restaurants in Austin. Good food and good conversation. If you're single, great. If you're a part of a couple and want to meet other couples, that's great too. Just let me know. I found that 6 is a perfect number to get to know each other, and everyone can participate in the same conversation.
Update March 2018... I renamed this "Somer's Table for 6" not because of my huge ego, but because Table-for-6's are popping up and causing confusion. This "Table for 6" Meetup is not affiliated with any other Meetups, even if they have the same exact description. We're taking it as a compliment ;)
Update July 2019... I moved to Austin! This group grew to over 900 members in Washington DC and I had such a blast running it. I typically reserve 5 tables of 6 people each; 30 people showing up to a restaurant is all I can handle and stay sane! I've learned how to run a tight ship, sending out the seating list in advance, ensuring that this group has a serious no-show policy, and other stuff like that. Can't wait to launch it here in my new town!
