Munch Frequently Asked Questions
Does It Hurt to Go to a Munch?
No, usually not during (unless the meal gives you heartburn), sometimes before or after, but only if that is what you have negotiated with someone, and then you say thank you afterwards.
Will I Be Welcomed? Dare I Come Alone?
Half of the attendees are single, and many came by themselves the first time. You are usually introduced to many others, and we do all we can to make you welcome. Like any other first of life, the good part is you only have to have it as a first, one time. Please be 18 years of age or older.
Traditionally the South Florida Munch is predominantly heterosexual, but there are attendees who are Gay/BiSexual/Transgender/CD's/etc., and all are welcomed with open arms.
When Are Munches?
The South Florida Munches are held on the second Saturday of each month. The munches are usually from 6:00-8:00 p.m. (but not always). Click HERE for information on the next South Florida Munch!
Where Do the South Florida Munches Take Place?

What is the Cost?
Please order a meal off the menu when we go to a restaurant that provides a menu. We only ask that our munchers tip 20% if they are having a meal, or 25% if they are only having appetizers! By tipping well we are treated well by the restaurant and this is just what we like! We also do ask for a $3.00 donation at the door, most of which goes to the establishment and once in a while we pull out a few dollars for supplies (website, nametags, Sharpies, signs, printer ink, etc).
When we go to other restaurants or other venues the cost will vary, but we always try to keep the cost under $20 a person.
What Do I Wear? (Most Popular Question)
Ideally, unless we have a private restaurant the only way we could differ in look from the other patrons is that we are probably wearing a preponderance of black. In other words, please dress VANILLA, unless we tell you otherwise. Of course, wherever we go, a smile and great attitude looks good on all...grin.
