1. Arrive no more than 10-15 minutes before or after the start time (7:30 for dinners, 12pm for brunch). The host/hostess will greet you, place your contribution (appetizer/entree/dessert/wine) in a safe place to serve shortly, and help make you feel comfortable.
     
  2. Everyone gets themselves food and is seated promptly 20 minutes after the listed start time. Feel free to snap a quick picture while everything looks so good!
     
  3. Go around in a circle - 90 seconds per person - who you are and what you care about, not necessarily just what you do.
     
  4. Someone proposes a good topic of conversation!
     
  5. With about 10 minutes left (about two hours after the start time), go around in a circle to say some things you're grateful for, excited for, or plug what you're working on.
     
  6. Help the host/hostess clean up, swap contact info with anyone you may want to stay in touch with, and feel free to post on social media (tag MealTribes on Facebook or Instagram)!
