1. What is the goal of DinnerConnect?
The goal of DinnerConnect is to allow expats and locals the chance to socialize with one another in a relaxed and casual setting over great food.
2. How often does DinnerConnect take place?
DinnerConnect takes place approximately every other month.
3. Why do I have to pay in advance?
This enables the host to cover the cost for the food and drink that will be required. Additionally, it helps us confirm, in advance, how many people are going to attend. Finally, by paying in advance, you are making a commitment that you will come. Once your payment has been received, you will be given the address and contact information of the host.
4. What if I get sick and can’t come?
In this case, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you to either sign you up for the following event or refund your money.
5. Can I bring other people with me?
You are welcome to bring people with you! Everyone should, however, be signed up and paid for in advance.
6. What do I get for my money?
The host will provide a small apero, dinner and dessert. As well, all drinks, including wine with the meal, are included.
7. Can you tell me what is on the menu before I sign up?
The menu is at the discretion of the host. In the event the host has decided well in advance what to cook, it may be able to share this information in advance. However, we would encourage you to take the opportunity to meet new people even if you don’t know – consider it a welcome surprise!
8. What about my food allergies?
You will be asked at the time you sign-up to inform us of any allergies or food limitations. In the event the host cannot accommodate these, you will be informed in advance and your payment, if already made, refunded.
9. How many people usually attend?
This depends very much on the host, their comfort preparing food for groups and the size of their table. It is typically between 6 and 10.
10. Does it have to be dinner? Can I host a potluck instead?
If you are interested in hosting an event that is not a meal, please be in touch! We will work with you to create something that works for you and BaselConnect.
