The only other requirements are that you are 40 or over, single, enjoy dining out and making new friends, and, for those who are single parents - this is about the adults so leave the kiddies at home.
We are a group of like minded single people, mostly in our 40s, 50s and 60s, who enjoy good food and good conversation. never married, divorced, widowed or long-term-separated). Our most exclusive suppers are for just 5 ladies and 5 gentlemen for a 5 stage supper: pre dinner drink and nibbles, starter, main course, dessert, coffee & petit fours.
When the date of dinner rolls around, simply show up 10 minutes early - outside if it is nice or inside if it isn't, and, we'll get to know each other over dinner. The simple act of dining together in the hopes of making new friends.
If you arrive late, reservations will usually be made under my name "Vena Moore." Billing is simple, everyone pays for their own including tax and tip (15%-20%).
There are no meetings, just RSVP that you can make it. RSVPs will be limited to 8 people per month with a waitlist.
This allows members to get to know each other on a more intimate level and we don't get stuck with "group" limitations that restaurants sometimes impose.
This group is about getting together once per month at various restaurants around Manhattan.
All that is required is a desire to meet other singles over 40 who share a passion about good food.
Our events are small - between just 10 and a maximum of 14 people at each supper (depending on the menu).
The Cotswold Supper Club is a new alternative: a relaxed, no pressure way to meet several other single people over the course of an evening while sharing a delicious meal in exclusive surroundings.
