Hampton Roads Chow Dinner Group

krisrishere Oct 24, 2011 02:09 PM

For over a year now, a group of Chow members from this board having been meeting for dinner on a monthly basis. We have great fun trying new places and talking about food. We've been everywhere from Razzo, to Jade Villa, Stove, C & H Oyster Bar (Elizabeth City) and Country Grill (Yorktown).

Lately, I've seen some new "faces" on this board and I would love to meet and eat at some of the places we have discussed here. Our next dinner date is Sunday, November 20th at Jessy's Tienda y Taqueria in Ocean View.

If you're interested, you can respond to this thread.

      Hey Janet,
      I noticed a lot of the same people posting around here, and started replying to their posts about starting up a dinner group. You can also put out a posting like Kris has above. We meet once a month, and try different places that members suggest. It gives us an opportunity to try something or some place new that we might not try on our own. Give it a try, or join us sometime.

        I just discovered this website and read quite a few of the old posts from HR chow people. It was so interesting. My husband and I consider ourselves local "foodies" and attempt to try new restaurants at any opportunity. If there is still room in the group could we also be added to the email list?

          jonandkate,
          There's always room except when I eat too much :) Hey, either e-mail Kris at her address in her reply to MrBigTime, or send an e-mail to me at: titan76@cox.net. Put your chow name in the subject line.

          Hi -

          I'd be interested, I'm new to the area and interested in finding some hidden gem resturants.
