What we're about

Do you enjoy trying new food and making new friends?

We love discovering the tastes in our wide variety of local restaurants, exploring food festivals and events, and sharing meals in local get-togethers.

Only requirement is that you like to eat and are willing to try new foods. Single or married, young or old, experienced chef or one who burns water - you're welcome to join us!

We charge a minimal $5 per year to help offset the cost of Meetup hosting us and for the plates, cups, napkins, flatware, ice, etc that we provide at events.

Farmer's Market and Lorimar? Wine not!

Temecula Farmer’s Market

Yes, it's another twofer. Why have fun at one place when we can go to two?

Let's stroll around Old Town Temecula and enjoy the historic landmarks and unique architecture.

We'll start the morning at the open air Farmer's Market. The Farmer's Market is where local farmers sell only agricultural products they grow themselves. Plus fresh florals and plants, art and yummy food ready to eat and share!

And speaking of sharing, our next stop will be Lorimar Loft where we'll share some of the munchies that we snagged from the Farmer's Market or what we brought from home. The Loft has generously offered an area for us to relax while we enjoy some of the area's finest wines at a special rate just for us! Lorimar crafts award-winning wines that showcase the strengths of Temecula Wine Country.

10:30 to 11:45 Farmer's Market
12:00 to 1:30 Lorimar Loft for wine and munchies

Join us for one or both! I'll bring a large cooler for us to store our perishable Market "finds" while at Lorimar.

Please note in the comments section what you'll bring to munch on at Lorimar. Or surprise us and snag something to share at the Farmer's Market.

Friends-Giving Feast!

Private Residence

We're doing it again...Friends-Giving!

While we all enjoy the traditional Thursday dinner filled with distant relatives and mom's homemade mashed potatoes, here are some fabulous reasons to join us for Friendsgiving:
1. You don't have to travel.
2. You don't have to listen to the same stories for the umpteenth time.
3. You don't have to pretend to like your family.
4. Mom won't be there to make sure you eat enough veggies.
5. There will most definitely be booze!

This year we will be dining outdoors, at Tina and Danny’s home in Temecula. Plenty of room for social distancing since our outdoor dining area seats 120.

Please add what you and your guest are bringing to the sign-up Google share here:

Please do NOT post it in the comments. If you have any questions, please PRIVATE MESSAGE me.

Music will be playing and the dance floor will be ready!
