What we're about
Welcome to Simply Epicurious
From food novices to epicurean gourmands, Simply Epicurious Epicurians always have a fun time trying new spots, old haunts, and established venues throughout the Twin Cities. Join us to share laughter, great conversation, a good meal and drink.
Our events include breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner out; food festivals, happy hours,and more! We'll partake of food and drink delights at various eateries in the Twin Cities area. Whether it's a fantastic hole-in-the-wall, a hot, new upscale restaurant, or a local legend, we'll try it.
This group is about joining interesting food with interesting people. Events fill quickly, so jump on the waitlist because plans change and spots open ALL the time.
Don't see your favorites on our calendar? Feel free to step up and host. We'll get you set up as an organizer or co-host with you until you're comfortable. It's easy!
Our RSVP and No-Show Policy:
To ensure everyone has an opportunity to enjoy our group events, please only RSVP when you know your availability and intend to participate. We know plans can change, and appreciate that your RSVP can change and that you'll keep it current.
We have a simple no-show policy. If something happens and you can not make an event, change your status to not attending, or make a comment in the comment section before the event. No-shows prevent others from attending and can impact the restaurants we patronize. If you have two no-shows, you will be removed from the group.
Our Waitlist and Late Drop-out Policy:
Members are responsible for keeping their RSVP's current, to allow full participation at our events and ensure seats don't go empty. RSVP's close 24 hours before the start of each event, which means that if anyone cancels after that time, the next person on the wait list will NOT automatically be moved onto the "going" list. If you are confirmed for an event and cancel less than 24 hours in advance, it will be considered a late drop-out. After three such occurrences, we reserve the right to ask you to take a break from the group until you can attend the events you sign up for.
Likewise, if you're still on the waitlist for an event and see spots open at the last minute, feel free to contact the organizer to see if they can fit you in. It helps to use the Meetup app and set it to receive notifications, so you get the most up-to-date information on each event.
