What can you expect at your DishCourse event? Your host will help facilitate the experience from start to finish. You'll arrive at a beautifully decorated table with customized place settings where you can find your name. Each event is a little different depending on the restaurant, but one thing you can certainly expect is amazing food. We'll spend the meal getting to know each other on a deeper, more intimate level. Each table is limited to a maximum of 6 people, so you'll certainly know everyone before the end of the experience. At the end, we'll open handmade gifts. The following day, you'll be put in a group chat where you can continue building friendships with everyone you met.

The experience doesn't end there. Returning guests are rewarded with special discounts and access to exclusive community gatherings, further fostering a sense of belonging and connection.
