Home dinner in Tamboerskloof
Posted January 23rd, 2011 - 9:31 am by from Cape Town, South Africa (Permalink)
Hi guys, we (my husband and I) recently moved to the city and we would love to host a home dinner. We´ve never done that before. So if anyone could tell us how it´d work we´d be in. Looking forward to meeting you all.
Cheers
Kerstin

Hello Kerstin

Welcome to the city for you and your husband.

Hosting a home dinner is really easy. First decide what kind of dinner you would like. Will you do all the cooking? Will the people invited be cooking at your place? Or will people be bringing dishes that are already prepared (so that no one makes a mess in your kitchen :) ). I always find the last one to be the easiest. Or you could have a braai (barbecue).

Then simply post it on this group or in the general Cape Town group too if you want. It's always best to create and event: http://www.couchsurfing.org/meetings.html?new=1 That way you have an idea of how many people will come and in addition you can send private message invites to people since not everyone reads the posts. But be careful! It's easy to invite 1000s of people to your house using the invite system.

If you need any further help, let me know.

Marcia

Hi Kerstin!
I am returning to Cape Town after being away for 2 years, so I can't wait to meet some CS'ers again.
If you organise a dinner after the 14th of Feb '11 i'm definitely in!!!
End of March I get to move back to my own apartment so after that I can do a dinner at my place as well!
Keep well! Hope to meet you soon! Ciao, LIZ
