Lunch Bunch a Delicious Success

We just had our second Lunch Bunch, a new monthly dining experience. We eat at a different restaurant in the neighborhood every month for the very competitive price of $15.

Our inaugural Lunch Bunch was at Los Nopales in January, and they served us a wonderful family style meal that included fish, chicken and beef dishes. Fifteen of us enjoyed the experience. Many were impressed with the food and the atmosphere; it is a charming place run by a wonderful family.


This month we ate at Rockwell’s, at Eastwood and Rockwell. The burgers and chicken pasta salad were delicious, as was everything else. We were 14 this time but no men, where are you guys? We missed you Bert! Some know each other and others are there make new friends. But we were all there to share. We discussed our neighborhood, the senior CAPS meeting, and many other things. It was a great way to build our community.

We had great service and even better conversations.


Join us next month when we go to Café 28 on the 21st of March! We changed our meeting time to 12 noon. There was also interest in going to Spacca Napoli in April. Save the date, the 3rd Thursday of the month.
