Chowhound Dinner Group

  • 7

I'll try to start organizing group dinners again in May via the yahoo group (per Chowhound rules) and Evite.

Tell me:
1. What night of work is your preferred (Monday & Tuesday seemed to work best last time)
2. Where do you want to go?
We need a place that lets us do separate checks or does counter service or is a set price that we can collect in advance. (Been stuck with the check too many times)

Places we tried last go round included:
Ventana (closed now but at the Culinary academy)
Cafe Bleu
Olivia
Uchi
Uchiko
Jeffrey's
Thai Passion

If you want to join the group please send a request so I can add you.

  1. I do if I'm not already on it. Do I need to request through Yahoo? There are a LOT of places that I haven't tried, being out of the game lately. I'm down for any night except for the next ten Thursdays.

    1. Thanks for getting this going again. Have not been a member of that yahoo forum before, so grateful for any guidance on group name etc.

      Anytime is fine for me- I go to work early and usually home by 4:30.

      Interested in just about anything around town to try. I know what places I already like and go there all the time. Eager to explore anything and everything- old favorites or something totally new, and in all cuisines and price ranges.

      Would be fun do a BYO place here and there if others want to make it a mini-wine dinner (even taking turns over time bringing bottles informally so we just have a glass or two per person as it is a weeknight and we are all driving home.)

      1. I'd like to - how do I send a request?

        1. re: addlepated

          Just google "yahoo groups" and go to that page. Look for the "Find a Group" box and enter "Austin Chowhounds"

          Voila

          1. I'm in. Only restriction is my new job requires an early night.

            1. Evite went out today for our May outing. Please join our yahoo group if you want to be included.
