Have you ever wanted to try new foods with others, or go on a tasting journey at various restaurants and bars in the city with a welcoming group of people who live in the same area? Now you can! Enter: The Before Love Club, our casual and engaging Meetup group for hungry folks who have no shame in putting food before love. We’re looking for new members.

As part of the club, you and fellow foodies will meet up multiple times a month to explore all the wonderful things this city has to offer, one bite and sip at a time. You can join The Before Love Club now for $9.99 per month, and automatically gain access to all official Food Before Love events in addition to the Meetups.

After you join, you can get your fill by attending every Meetup your taste buds desire, each with a mouthwatering theme. From exploring hotly debated classics like macaroni and cheese to discovering new trends like Poke, there’s a Meetup for every palate. If you prefer sips or sweets to savory bites, you’ll fit right in when we imbibe at the city’s most popular bars and dessert shops. Don’t forget your wallet though, as you’ll need to pay for whatever you order!

In addition to enjoying delicious food and drinks, one of the best parts of being a member is getting to know and building friendships with other like-minded locals in an intimate and approachable setting.

During the Mac & Cheese Meetup at Brooklyn’s Mullanes restaurant, members sipped on sangria while trying a range of macaroni and cheese dishes — from classic plain that pleased the purists to buffalo chicken with jalapeños for the more daring members. Around the table, lively conversation began about everyone’s favorite ways to enjoy macaroni and cheese and soon evolved into a rich and genuine discussion about travel, life experiences and best places to visit around the area. Everyone left with smiles on their faces, and the next one will be even better with you there.

Not ready to commit on a monthly basis? Hey, we get it, test the waters with a 14-day free trial. That’s enough time to go to the next Meetup and get to know the other hungry members of the group to make sure it’s right for you (though we already know it is).

The benefits of joining don’t stop with Meetups. As a member, you’ll automatically gain access to official Food Before Love events as well. So, those awesome featured events you see in the works? Tickets will start at $10 for non-members, but as a member of The Before Love Club, all you’d need to do is RSVP and you’re in. Yes, that means in one night, your membership could pay for itself.

Join The Before Love Club today, and feast with us at the next gathering. We can’t wait to see you there!
