If you love good food, good conversation, and good fun, please join us for a culinary caravan that monthly will explore the best restaurants of western Massachusetts and beyond (using some of the great recommendations here on Chowhound to determine our locations).
To get notices of our events, sign up at: http://www.meetup.com/Western-Mass-Ea... .
Our first "eat up" event will be Thursday, June 25, 7pm, at Side Street Cafe in Florence, Massachusetts.
You can contact the organizers for these events on Twitter at @AteToTheBar (that's me) and @jessicawaters. You can also search for the event using the hashtags #EatUp and #westernma.
There's a tiny fee ($5) to reserve space (which is limited) and ensure our chosen restaurants aren't left "holding the salad." You'll get it back at the event--to go towards gratuities (sans $1 for administrative costs--such as maintaining the MeetUp site).
Support our fine local eateries and meet new people, all at the same time! We very much look forward to meeting and eating with you.
