Established in January 2010, QC Dinner Group is a small foodie group in Charlotte which gathers once or twice a month to try a new restaurant or to visit a favorite. We returned to Meetup in 2015 after 1 1/2 years experimenting with other sites.
We make every effort to support locally-owned restaurants but we may stray to a unique chain once in a while. We meet 1-3 times per month except around the winter holidays and from Monday through Wednesday (and an occasional early Sunday) when restaurants are less busy. Our events are limited to 8-12 people to keep dinners more personable.
We try to stay in the following areas for our dinners: Uptown, Dilworth, Plaza/Midwood, NoDa, Southend, South Charlotte, Ballantyne, East Charlotte. We may stray from these areas for an early Sunday dinner.
While QC Dinner Group welcomes responsible adults of all ages and backgrounds, the typical age range for our dinners is 30's to 50's. We are also LGBT-friendly and a group that welcomes diversity.
1. We are a small group with a maximum of 50 members. If you decide to join, please understand you may be waiting a few months for your membership to be approved. If we are at 50 members, someone must leave the group before we can approve another person. You may follow up with us at any time to see where you are on the waiting list.
We have no interest in expanding our membership beyond 50 members. Keeping QC Dinner Group small is what works best for our group.
2. We charge a membership fee of $5.00 per year. New members are given a 90-day trial period before the membership fee must be paid or they will be removed from the group.
3. Your profile must include a recent face picture to join and remain a member of QC Dinner Group. Face pictures help us identify people attending our events.
4. QC Dinner Group is for reliable people who take RSVPs seriously. If you RSVP and later realize you cannot attend, please have the courtesy to update your RSVP and/or notify the event organizer. No-shows are considered rude and inconsiderate and may be grounds for removal from the group.
