List dinners are organized to help Arlingtonians meet one another and to enjoy a tasty meal in Arlington. We have business owners, homeowners, renters, longtime residents, public officials, etc., who attend each month. The dinners are open to anyone on the list who lives in Arlington or who is interested in being with a room full of Arlingtonians.
The dinners are usually planned for a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday starting at 7 p.m. Occasionally we meet on a Friday evening. We try to choose restaurants that are very vegetarian friendly. As for kids, when a post is sent to invite people to the dinners, it indicates whether or not it is a kid-friendly restaurant. We also do pot luck dinners at list member's homes. Occasionally we dine out of town to enjoy a cuisine that is not available in Arlington.
You are responsible for your own check. Sometimes appetizers are shared and the people who share them divide up their cost. We have name tags at each of the dinners, and you get a chance to meet those seated near you at the dinner. It is recommended to come more than once to get a chance to meet everyone at the dinners and to find those with whom you may have more in common.
