Blogging about food and ogling food porn is all fine and good, but there is still nothing like sitting down to a meal IRL…with real food, and real people, face to face. Novel concept, huh? 😉
Make those in-real-life moments happen with the help of Grubwithus. Founded in July 2010, Grubwithus is a community where friends and future friends create and join group meals. Users can browse and reserve meals online, and then meet and socialize over great food.
Meals are hosted at restaurants (Beretta, Zazie, and La Mediterranee currently have events listed in SF), and each diner pays in advance for a set menu that is served family style. The price of the meal covers food, tax, and tip, so everything is taken care of upfront, eliminating that awkward check-splitting moment at the end of large group meals. Also, since the price of the meal is negotiated directly with the restaurant, the Grubwithus price will always be lower than what you would pay going to the restaurant on your own.
Grubwithus strives to bring people together over food, helping people connect with others who share similar interests. For example, you could mingle at the Singles Dining Club, swap travel stories with fellow Jetsetters, or find others who are New in Town. If entrepreneurship and tech is your thing, you may want to check out the Y Combinator group, which hosts meals with different founders. Browse the themed groups and choose who you’d like to dine with.
If you’re trying to plan a birthday dinner or dinner with a big group of friends, you can also set up a private meal which can only be seen by those who have been invited. Enjoy the meal and leave the logistics to Grubwithus.
Grubwithus is free to join, and we’re giving away a $35 credit to get you started!
