Talk over drinks @Kendall Meetup changes

Heads up! The Champions Thursday meetup is changing to meet with our venue’s policies. It is still being held every other week.

We’ve been guests at this restaurant for many years, and feedback is that the restaurant works well for many people. As our group has gotten larger, it’s put more of a strain on the restaurant’s ability to serve us and the rest of their customers well, and they’ve asked us to make a few changes to improve everyone’s experience. We’re going to try them out to see how it goes for everyone. We are very interested in your feedback with these changes in place.

1) Attendance will be limited for the near future while we get used to this new system, so it is very important that you keep your RSVP current. If you know you can’t attend, please let us know as soon as you can, so that we can add wait listers onto the guest list. Also, RSVPs are required. If you show up and haven’t RSVPed, you will be turned away. We appreciate the interest and hope you understand, it is in the best interests of the group.

2) There is a $15 minimum spent per person. If you plan on joining only for conversation, please consider attending one of our other meetups.

3) Regarding food. In order to make it easier on the meetup organizers, we are moving to a smaller menu so that it’s easier to estimate what each attendee owes. The most popular items from the appetizer, sandwich, entree, and salad portions of the menu will still be included. This menu can change with enough feedback, so if you really miss something, let us know!

4) As for the bill, previously we’ve had individual checks, but this has been difficult for the venue. We are going to try a single check system. That said, you can still pay individually: keep track of how much you ordered, then either pay with cash, or say “put X dollars on this card”. Menu prices will include tax and tip, so it is just a matter of adding together the dollar amounts of what you ordered.

Thank you for your cooperation while we adjust to the new policies.

As usual, please bring your driver's license or passport, if you would like to have alcohol. They are strict about IDs, no ID = no booze. People who can’t or aren’t interested in drinking alcohol are very welcome! Champions is mainly a restaurant. Just remember the $15 minimum.

Champions is located at MIT/Kendall Sq. station. If you come from Boston side, you will see it right in front of the T exit. It is part of the Marriott. Even though the address is listed as 50 Broadway, you can really only see it from the Main street side. We are usually to the right of the host station, either at a long table near the front or the small one closest to the rest rooms if it is a small group. If you can’t find us, you can ask the hostess for the “Japanese meetup group” and they will point you to us.


4)各自で個別の領収書の発行はできなくなりますが、各自で現金またはクレジットカードによる個別の支払いは引き続き可能です。特別メニューの値段に消費税とチップはあらかじめ含まれていますので、自分が頼んだ商品の値段を合計して、現金で支払うか、もしくは店員に”please put ○○ dollars on this card”と言って、クレジットカードでお支払いください。
