How does one join the chowhound pack?

  • p

Having recently moved back to the Bay Area, and discovered this wonderful site, I've been wondering how one joins up for any chowhound events. I've read mention of "chowhound dinners". Is there a club one has to join?

    To join the pack - just reply to the posts and show up for dinner! We have had some fun dinners and am sure there will be many to come. Anyone can organize one - post a note about a dinner, make the reservation, keep track of who's coming - everyone shows up, has good food & wine, splits the bill evenly (so family/sharing type dinners seem to work best) and a fun time is had by all.

    There's been talk of doing a tapas dinner in the city (Randy or Rochelle??) and keep an eye out for a possible one in Oakland soon.

      well, i know randy's been really busy but the last we talked he was mentioning one of the last two weeks of july for tapas. i'll give him a buzz and see where we stand. one way or the other we'll be having tapas Soon.

      And Welcome to the site. it's a great place to be, to learn, to make new friends, to eat better than you thought possible for less than you'd imagined, but perhaps most of all to Drool at all the culinary adventures we get to live vicariously thru.

      hope to see you at the next dinner.

        Many thanks, Celery and Rochelle! It's great to be among people who love good food as much as I do, and I look forward to joining one of the Chowhound dinners soon!
