Dine and Discuss

Feeling lonely, bored, and tired of eating alone?

Social distancing doesn’t have to mean isolation.

While restaurants are closed, our Open Diner is here to serve you.

Open Diner is a shared virtual space where people just like you and I, from all around the world, can come together. We enjoy a hosted meal with music, toasts, discussion, and more while staying safely at home.

Let’s be honest!

We are social creatures, and we crave connection. The number one killer is not Corona, but loneliness! Now is the time to step back from our daily routine and reflect on life and our future together.

That’s what this project is about. We feel that by sharing ideas around our virtual table, we can come to a vision of a brighter future. And by sharing joy and connection, we can come out of this pandemic quicker and into a new, better world.

So grab a plate, pour a drink, and join us for a meal and a chat. We are all in this together. Join us!
