The mission of Friends with Forks sparks a fire in your belly
What is Friends with Forks?
Friends with Forks is a community based membership that strives to bring people together, eat great food, and meet like minded people in our neighborhoods.
When we began, we partnered with local restaurants and created several success events. But we discovered that events created in private homes allowed for more intimacy and a better experience for everyone. We want to do more of these. This is where you come in.
We are looking for local spaces to host more of our dining events.
We believe we can build a vibrant community around the dinner table!
The pandemic made us all feel isolated. Now that the world is opening up again, people are eager to connect again. What better way than sharing a meal together.

You decide what you want to get paid and we will factor that into the ticket price so you get reimbursed. Keep in mind that we like to keep the ticket price low so that the event will sell out and you can keep doing more of them.
Anything you want! The sky is the limit! It is YOUR party!
It depends on what kind of an event you want to host. Some events lend themselves to Sunday afternoon (Crepe party) or Friday night. (Wine Tasting Party) but you decide. Weekends usually work best but a week night can work too.
