Wine and Dine with Strangers on Grubwithus

Fill in this blank: “I haven’t made a new friend since _________.”

Sad, isn’t it?

Grubwithus has a fix for that: impromptu dinner parties full of strangers who may or may not like one another.

Yikes? Not really. Guests choose from a list of events in their area organized around specific interests, industries, foods — basically any topic that will break the ice among link-minded strangers.

Diners purchase tickets, which cover a two- or three-course family-style meal, tax, and gratuity. Any fun beverages (i.e. alcoholic drinks) are billed individually.

If you’d rather play host, create an event by choosing the neighborhood, approximate number of people, and desired price range ($16, $21, $26, or $38 per person). Give it a catchy title and description, and watch as potential new friends buy tickets for your event.

Already have tons of pals? You can use Grubwithus to organize private events, too.

But where’s the fun in that?
