There are few socially acceptable ways to talk to strangers without people thinking you’re hitting on them. Our dinners bring eight potential new friends together, while supporting local up-and-coming restaurants on their quieter nights. We want to make the world a friendlier place, and we believe we can, because all friends were once strangers.
If you would like to know more then we suggest you email us, but to be honest we probably won’t tell you anything else. We can be real jerks that way. Alternatively you can read about other people's experiences below.
So I’m in the car headed to a dinner with seven strangers. No big deal, just your average Tuesday night.
A cool creative friend first told me about Stranger Danger Dinners and how to get in touch with the reclusive Stranger to be put on the waiting list. Genius, I thought. Who doesn’t love a little mystery and word of mouth? I signed up immediately.
Imagine walking into a restaurant with no idea who your dinner guests will be for the next three hours. Once, the very thought of it would have made me squirm. But now, having last night attended such a dinner, I can confidently say that it was one of the best things I have ever done.
There’s something wonderfully open about dining with strangers, you’ve got nothing to lose so nobody holds back.
If there’s an unusual or uncomfortable narrative you’ve been wanting to get off your chest then you’ve found a safe space in which to share it.
