Like to meet new people? Ever eat and talk at the same time? Then Cincinnati E.A.T.S. (Epicureans About Town Society) is for you. Cincinnati E.A.T.S. is a brand new organization dedicated to supporting Cincinnati's great local, independent restaurants by having fun and eating a lot of great food. Still with me? Cincinnati E.A.T.S. will expose a new, younger clientele to the best restaurants in the region via a discounted three-course, fixed-price meal every couple of months. The goal is to take over an entire restaurant on an "off" night for a night of food, cocktails, and socializing. But don't plan on making reservations for your friends to sit together at a table. Seating will be open and we will all eat together at the same time so you're guaranteed to meet someone new.
