Slow Food Denver in collaboration with A Table in Time invite all to host a Slow Food Denver dine-around this year. These dinners will inspire lively conversation and build community around the table. There will be two dinners all happening on the same nights in various communities around Denver in June and October this year. Choose one or both times to host.
Why dine-around dinners?
>We wanted to create a way for people to connect and engage with the local Slow Food community by slowing down and gathering at the table for inspiring, meaningful conversation while sharing simple, delicious food in someone’s home. We’ve partnered with organization that share our vision for cultivating thoughtful community.
What does it mean to host a dinner?
This is a great opportunity to get involved with Slow Food Denver by opening up your home to host a dinner, inviting people to your table for meaningful conversation and connections, all in the spirit of Slow Food. Hosts will work with Slow Food Denver to finalize an invitation, invite guests, and plan their evening. Co-hosting is encouraged. We recognize that hosting a dinner requires generosity of time and resources – remember that as a host you don’t need to do it alone! Consider inviting your guests to contribute to the dinner by bringing food or beverages.
Our partner, A Table in Time, has provided a wonderful framework for hosts to use to inspire engaging conversation during the dinners. Each host will be provided with questions and tips to guide your dinner. As a host, you choose how you would like to use this information – make the evening your own! Our other partners bring new enthusiasts into our community, creating a broader global view.
We request that hosts capture photos at their dinners and share on social media or send to us to share. We want to create some buzz and energy around this delicious community-building happening around the table in Denver!
