What we're about

What is the Twin Cities Hot & Spicy Food Lovers Group?

Our group is open to all lovers of hot & spicy food who wish to indulge in the best spicy cuisine in the Twin Cities area!

We're a friendly, laid-back group but we are passionate about great spicy food -- our only requirement is, "enjoy yourself"!

Can I host my own Hot & Spicy event?

Yes! Anyone can host an event!

Have you found a great local restaurant willing to take hold back nothing in terms of spicy goodness? Let's check it out!

Please don't hesitate to go to the group page and schedule a new meetup event for your favorite spicy hangouts.

Should I be aware of any rules?

It helps a TON in planning to get an accurate head count of those who will be attending each event. Therefore, our only rule is that if you RSVP 'Yes' and can't make it to the event, please update your RSVP to 'No'.

NOTICE- due to the excessive amount of no-shows recently, the Twin Cities Hot and Spicy Food Lovers meetup group will begin enforcement of a 'three strikes, you're out' policy.
People who RSVP 'Yes' and do not attend the restaurant meetup will be noted, and messaged each time until they have dropped out 3 times. They will have their membership terminated subsequently. Noon on the meetup day will be the final cutoff to switch to a 'No' RSVP.
This policy is to insure our reservations do not inconvenience the restaurant due to a turnout that is less than was confirmed beforehand. It will also allow anyone who really desires to go with the group to be able to attend. Most restaurants can handle large groups, the limit will be increased as much as possible.
Hopefully your RSVP'S will reflect an intent to join the group and enjoy another meal together. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

GameNight! RETURNS to the Green Mill EVERY week!

Green Mill Restaurant & Bar

Are you ready for social-distanced boardgames? I sure am, and I bet you are as bored of being unable to be social and safe from Covid-19 as I am. So here's an open invitation to play boardgames with others in a setting as safe as you want to enjoy, restaurant style at the Green Mill Pizza bar and restaurant. We are a small group of regulars who like to play boardgames and meet others like ourselves. Would you like to join us? We will continue to meet weekly at the most popular spot in Saint Paul we used to meet at before covid-19.... The Green Mill. Our first table reservation is the start, as more people show up, we just get more tables until everybody is having fun, as safe as possible. Bring your masks, bring your hand sanitizer, bring whatever makes you comfortable in an indoor setting, just bring YOURSELF! (And any friends you want to include.) We have been doing this for years, and the virus pandemic is NOT going to stop us! Be ready to have some fun in a socially-distanced, safe as possible way, once a week, with past and future friends. YOU are invited.... by all the boardgame hosts, Roll the dice! ;-)

GRAPHIC NOVEL BOOK CLUB, 2nd Thursday of every Month ONLINE ZOOM Meetup

(Technically this isn't a "foodie" event, but it's my group, and I am also very into this type of stuff, so .... enjoy!) ;-) Every month we read a new graphic novel (or set of comics in a series). There are about 10-12 regular members, so you are very welcome! Our moderator is Matt Reins, an enthusiastic reader of all types of comic and graphic novel books. He guides the roundtable discussion and usually provides a 1-2 page synopsis of the current month's selection. Formerly, this was a face-to-face event.... (and hopefully will be sometime again!) But until further notice, it will be an online ZOOM Meetup meeting. Here is the link information: Join Zoom Meeting.... https://umn.zoom.us/j/97998634945 Meeting ID:[masked] Join by SIP[masked]@zoomcrc.com Join by H[masked] (US West)[masked] (US East)[masked] (China)[masked] (India Mumbai)[masked] (India Hyderabad)[masked] (EMEA)[masked] (Australia)[masked] (Hong Kong SAR)[masked] (Brazil)[masked] (Canada)[masked] (Japan) Extra copies of the current month's selection are provided, and held at the front counter of Nokomis public library, by the library staff to be checked out for a whole month as a convenience to the club. There used to be mini-flyers on display telling what the upcoming club selections are, that are scheduled to be read in the coming months. Read ahead if you wish, or just attend and discuss the month's selection with the group. ....A BONUS FEATURE! We have "show and tell" at the end to share more good recommendations for reading of other graphic novels that might be of interest to club members. Anyone who has found a special graphic novel or other book of interest to others is invited to share and pass it around!
