Welcome! This group is for anyone interested in international culture exchange. Meet new people, attend fun events, learn about other cultures and practice languages.

Our types of events this year...

1. International Supper Club:
Organized by Alex.
1st or 2nd Wed. of the month.
Emphasis on authentic cuisine. This dinner usually has a special menu for us with a set price and family-style dining. It may also include items that are not on the restaurant's regular menu. This event combines our Meetup group with Alex's Yelp dining group.

2. New Member Welcome Dinner:
Organized by Jeannie.
3rd or 4th Tues., Thurs. or Sun. of the month.
Emphasis on meeting and getting to know new members of the Meetup group. All members are welcome, too. Everyone orders and pays for what they'd like from the regular menu. We vary the night of the week for this most months to give everyone a chance to attend, since people's schedules vary.

3. Conversational Language Practice:
Organized by Jeannie.
2nd or 3rd Fri.
The group voted to focus on Spanish, French, and Italian this year. The meetings are casual and social and suitable for everyone (even if you don't have experience, that's okay). We'll have fun and "break the ice" for three languages every month. We also will have some other language sessions to be announced. We'll vote on new languages to focus on next year.

4. Year-End Holiday Party:
Organized by Jeannie.
Held the last week in December. Details announced later in the year.

5. Various international restaurant, festival, film, art and music events. Aiming for one per month. Saturdays preferred. We would love to have more organizers/event hosts for these!

6. American adventure. Something new this year is traveling to nearby cities for off-the-beaten path experiences that show the regional diversity in the USA. Day trips for art, history, dining, nature, theme parks etc. may or may not include an international component. We would love more organizers and event hosts for these, too.

Thanks for being part of the group. We have over 2000 members now, and there are even more things we could do together. If you have the time and interest to help set up a few events, that would be a huge help and a fun way to be more involved in the group. Keep sending your ideas, too. :)
