For the love of food, community, and of course, the Internet.
Have you ever thought about how nice it’d be if you could sit with awesome people and just have interesting conversations over lots of good food? Someone thought it’d be nice to have a dinner party on the Internet, and to be honest, we’re are here for it.
For starters, technology has still not cut up with how to transfer food over the Internet like (shame). But somehow, it has helped us find ways to connect, and this time, over food. So it starts with this question;
Every last Sunday of the month, SixThirtyLagos wants to host a dinner party with “Delicious food, amazing company, secret location, every last Sunday, at sixty-thirty pm.”
According to SixThirtyLagos, it will be “a dinner party like Lagos has never seen before. No two will ever be the same.”
This is how it works;
You sign up to know where the next dinner is happening. Next, you get a menu, and if you like it, you fill out a form to get on a waiting list to be selected.
It looks like a lot of people are excited about it already, because we hear there’s been hundreds of sign ups already. So SixThirtyLagos is making it a limited seats thing, and picking guests in a lottery.
So if you get picked, you pay to get on board.
The first one, a Halloween-themed dinner, was held on Sunday 29th of October. Based on the feedback, it looks like it was lit.
It’s more about the movement than the food. Paint this picture. You’re in a new city, hoping to perhaps meet new, interesting people.
Perhaps, you just happen to have stumbled on a SixThirty community. Say, SixThirtyNairobi.
You find people, bond over food, create new friendships, share new ideas, and start new businesses. Because everything feels better with food. Next thing you know, there’s an army of SixThiry-ers in every city.
All of this, because the Internet made it possible. Seems trivial, but then again, isn’t this just, amazing?
The next one holds on the 26th of November.
