Table for 6 - Dinner @ Brick Lane (Capitol Hill)
Hi everyone! For anyone who is around the week between Christmas and New Year's, come join us at Brick Lane. This is the Capitol Hill Location -- please don't go to the one on 17th St! I ate here recently and it was great. Good location, good vibe. We really don't get down to SE that much. Let's switch it up! I just spoke with Salim and he has a great plan for us: -- $30 per person. This includes soup or salad, an entree, and dessert. -- Happy hour drink prices ($5!) at the table, for drinks ordered before 7pm. -- 2 tables of 6 people at 5:30pm. 2 tables of 6 people at 6pm. I'll post the seating list and your specific time to arrive closer to the event. Please note that if you're attending this event you will be spending $30 per person for food, and ordering off a set menu just for us. We'll have a menu of select options, similar to a "restaurant week" type situation. This will make it easier for their kitchen, and also so we can have separate checks. "It's a story of the American Dream. A Moroccan entrepreneur meets a Mexican chef, and together, an idea is born: a bistro founded on three principles – kindness, quality, and community. Opened in 2016, Brick Lane has become a neighborhood hotspot known for its delicious, fresh food and warm ambiance." --------------------------- Please note: • Close to the event I will post seating assignments, which include table numbers and your time to arrive. I always get there about 30 minutes early and camp out at the bar to greet everyone and ensure people can find their tablemates. I'll make a little placecard for you with your table number, and also a small sign for each table, so you can find them if a few people are already seated. • If you're bringing a guest, please add a +1 to your RSVP if they're not a part of the meetup group, so we ensure they have a spot. • If you're on time (which you should be, because you're a nice person), you will be awarded 10 Michelin Stars. These are mainly to feel proud about. • There is a charge of $2 to attend this event. This is to pay for Meetup fees (yes - they charge me monthly) and also for the time/coordination that goes into putting this together for you guys. Thank you in advance. I accept payment through this site, paypal ([masked]), paypal link: , or cash at the restaurant. Venmo me @somerconley • I have been forced to get more aggressive with removing no-shows and last-minute cancellations from the group. It's really just not nice. See the rules below. • Find us on Facebook! I created a group - People have asked if they can hang out post Table-for-Six, to meet folks from the other tables. Of course! Feel free to use the message board here to plan. But that'll be something you guys do on your own, versus me coordinating. The purpose of the meetup, and what makes it work, is to meet people in a small group setting, versus those large happy hours. They're fun, but totally different than our group. I've made some amazing friendships via Table-for-Six and I'm happy to rally the troops for you. **The fine print** • We take last minute changes and no-shows seriously given this isn't called Table for 6ish, or Table for Hopefully 4+ People. It's just not nice. If you cancel same-day or you are a no-show, you'll no longer be a part of the group.

    What we're about

    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 DC and NoVA. 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.

    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 ;)

    Find us on Facebook! There is a group called "Table for 6 - DC / NoVA"

    **The fine print**

    • We take last minute changes and no-shows seriously given this isn't called Table for 6ish, or Table for Hopefully 4+ People. It's just not nice. If you cancel same-day or you are a no-show, you'll no longer be a part of the group.

    • The table seating list will be posted 2-3 days before the event. If you change your RSVP from yes to no 3x after the list is posted, you'll no longer be a part of the group.

    Also, I have received questions from members asking if they can plan an event. Yes please! I only ask that you stick to the theme -- tables of 6. This is what makes our Meetup special, and successful. It's some work for sure. Just let me know if you're interested and I can make you an Event Organizer.
