NO SHOW POLICY
Since our group is so small and select, the balance is quite important. If you won’t be able to make it,
please let us know at least 24 hours in advance.
What is your COVID policy?
As a community, the safety of our guests and members comes first. We follow all federal and state guidelines and adhere to the best practices suggested by the CDC.
We rely on people’s honesty with regard to having been vaccinated/tested. We expect people to understand that many of our guests may be in high-risk groups and we would not want to risk their health.
If you don’t feel comfortable socializing yet or cannot commit to these criteria please let us know and we will invite you again at a later date when the situation has stabilized.
HOW DID YOU FIND ME?
Many of our invitees are recommended by someone who has attended before. Sometimes they are close friends, while other times it is because of the person's reputation in their industry. In addition, we have a research team that finds individuals who are the most talented in their industry.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I ATTEND?
Dinners are all hosted by our founder Jon Levy, and are either hosted in his home, or the homes of other Dinner Alumni.
Every dinner is unique depending on the guests and we intentionally keep this list private ahead of time since learning about each other outside of having professional context is part of the experience.
If there is a recent surge of COVID in the area, we will provide testing on entry. After being cleared, people will gather for conversation and drinks.
Once everyone has joined the group, we cook a communal meal and when seated to eat we play a game to figure out what people do professionally. This is when the reveal occurs, and guests finally discover who they are dining with.
HOW DO I CONFIRM YOU ARE REAL OR CAN I SPEAK TO A DINNER ALUMNI?
If you would like to speak to Jon, our founder, please message Codi and we can set up a video chat.
Alternatively, if you would feel most comfortable speaking with someone in your industry or in a specific social group (Women, LGBTQIA, BIPOC, etc.), please let Codi know, and we will do our best to arrange for a dinner alumni to connect with you.
WHAT EXPENSE IF ANY DO I NEED TO COVER
We have never charged a guest for any of our events, nor do we ever plan to. All expenses associated with the meal are covered by the organization. Guests are responsible for their own travel and accommodations.
