The premise of Good Eats and Meets is to explore all that each of our cities has to offer in the culinary world, whether it's testing the "Best Of" restaurants or sampling the "greasy spoons." The group is for adventurous people who enjoy sharing a meal and great conversation and the best part about it all? Membership is absolutely free! The majority of people living in each of out cities are transplants from other areas and Richard Gruica, the founder, wanted to “provide a gathering place for all those who love food and socializing, with the idea of broadening their knowledge of regional specialties.” The group brings people of all ages and walks of life together in the European style of “breaking bread” and also supports the local restaurant economy. Road trips, wine tastings, classes, farmer’s market tours, dinners, brunches and smaller-scale tasting and dinner parties, as well as many other events can also be found on the social calendar.
