Paul and I met on Thursday with two people that we got in contact with through the Cooking Light message boards about putting together a supper club. The meeting itself was interesting, as we were all from different backgrounds – some had previous experience with a supper club, others didn’t. The meeting seemed to go well, and we all made plans to have the first supper club at the end of June. We planned to fill out the group with friends of the other two people.
A couple of days later, the first person emailed to say she was backing out because she didn’t want to take part in a co-ed club, which didn’t seem to be an issue before, but suddenly was. Today, the other person emailed to say that she too was backing out of the supper club thing. I’m feeling rejected, but am not totally giving up on the idea.
If there are any supper clubs around who wouldn’t mind having two down-to-earth, non-pretentious fatties who can cook really well and are adventurous in our eating in your group, please give us a heads up. And so there are no surprises: we’re married, mid-30’s, educated professionals who happen to live in a Maronda-built house on the southwest side (I’m thinking this was part of the problem, since the one person’s body language visibly changed when we mentioned this).
