Exploring Dinner Clubs
For over a year now, we have spent most of our time living in the confines of our homes and feeling a little cut off from the social world. Now that everything is opening up again, it’s time that we figure out how to socialize differently.
Luckily, there are many different ways of socializing that are emerging lately, and the options are seemingly endless, which is incredibly exciting. However, the options can also be confusing at times.
We decided to discuss exactly what a dinner club is and how you can start one.
What Is A Dinner Club?
You might remember that before the pandemic (and before the emergence of technology in every aspect of our lives) hit, you used to hear about many people attending book clubs with their friends weekly.
Books clubs were extremely popular in the early nineties and consisted of a group of people meeting to read and discuss books weekly. The club would move to a new host each week, and the host would provide snacks for the club.
Now, imagine all of that, but with no reading and more food. However, dinner clubs tend to meet up monthly instead of weekly and consist of different hosts having the rest of the group over for a dinner that they will make.
How To Start One
All you need to do is ensure that you and a couple of friends have a shared desire to spend some time together outside of going out to restaurants or pubs where you may not feel as safe as if you were at home.
You then decide on a rotation and schedule that works for everybody; once you have done that, you learn about everybody’s dietary requirements and plan the meals that will be made according to this.
If you have the facilities for it, you can do a dinner club once a week, but it would probably be easier and more economical for everybody involved.
Dinner clubs are quite similar to book clubs, except for the content of the conversations being less intelligent than it might be in a book club. You can start a dinner club with anybody and tailor it to suit your preferences.
Starting a dinner club is an excellent way to meet up with friends safely and still feel like you're getting your socializing quota in.
