New Facebook group created: popup_dinners_cu

Want to attend a pop-up dinner? Want to host a pop-up dinner? New "popup_dinners_cu" Facebook group just created for serious foodies in the Champaign-Urbana area who are passionate about food and travel. Our goal is to build a community of like-minded adventurous eaters who also want to expand our culinary horizons. Our mission is to encourage new cultural discoveries, share celebrations of diversity, and make more meaningful connections to the world with pop-up dinner experiences and cooking classes hosted by locals. 

Join "popup_dinners_cu" to post, be notified of upcoming events, and to share your own food-related events like the upcoming "Dinner + A Movie: Ukraine" pop-up dinner experience. Since our original February 19 date is sold out, we have scheduled another dinner with the same menu for March 19, 2023 at 6pm. The cost for joining this event is $65 per person and all net profits will be donated to the Ukrainian war effort (see details).
