I think Tasty Chicago is pretty great because I love checking out new restaurants and meeting intelligent and outgoing people. I can honestly say that I've had more fun and much better conversation during most of my Tasty Chicago dinners than on most blind dates and several more traditional dating experiences. Whenever I think of a restaurant I want to check out or revisit, there it is on Tasty Chicago. I have clicked with people I've met at these dinners and we've socialized since then. I cannot emphasize enough what a quality group of people join these Tasty Chicago dinners, people you would never otherwise meet. We have closed down two restaurants and where, outside of this group, would a group of six strangers share a fine dining experience and have such great conversation that you actually lose track of time? I think that the founder is always seeking ways to improve what is already a great concept and is always looking for feedback and reaches out to the members and those just trying it out by attending some of the dinners. It's incredibly reasonable and it's also great for the restaurant community -- I've gone back to some of the places with friends after an amazing meal with Tasty Chicago. Since dating is a numbers game, this is a great way to increase the number of people you meet without the excruciating disappointments of online dating.
Pros: Amazing food, great conversation, meeting smart, witty people
