View Full Version : Supper Club in Sunnyvale, Mt. View et al
10-05-2003, 09:18 AM
I would like to start a supper club in the Sunnyvale, Mt. View etc.. areas. I love the idea of getting together with new friends to do some cooking, a little wine tasting and some great conversation!
Happy to include anyone who is interested, wherever you may live!
Let's get cooking!

I would be interested in starting a Supper Club in Sunnyvale. I saw there was also someone else interested in starting one in Sunnyvale. I'll send her an email to see if she's still interested. Tina

Has this group been formed? I think I may be interested. I'm in Santa Clara.

Courtney, I have not been contacted regarding setting up a new group. You and I could plan on getting together, and then we'll start contacting others who have expressed interest to see if we could expand the group. Thoughts?

I've been toying with the Supper Club idea. It would be fun to start a brand new one. I saw some of you responded to the San Jose one. Did you end up attending?
11-24-2003, 10:21 AM
Sorry we moved and my computer crashed! Anyway, I would love to get together with anyone interested in starting a supper club! You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe we can arrange to all meet and create a plan?
Talk with you soon,

Just looking through the Supper ClLub posts and wondered if y'all ever got a group together, and, if so, if you have any interest in another member? I'm in Santa Clara.

Hi, I would also be interested in joining a supper club, but I would like to keep it small, maximum 6. I live in San Jose, near Saratoga and 280. Did you get any other responses?
08-25-2004, 02:04 PM
I posted on the San Jose Supper Club thread where tricia_26 also posted & have since been in email contact with Tricia. I think we're going to try to get a group together - hopefully with the September issue having an article on supper clubs there will be more people interested in joining!
08-25-2004, 02:08 PM
I did hear from one other person. She mentioned that the CL supper club issue will be out in Sept. and that we may have more interest after that. She also lives in San Jose and I live in Santa Clara (San Tomas & Homestead).
We agreed to keep in touch and to post again in Sept. so that we could form a group in Sept./Oct. Shall we keep you posted as well? My e-mail is Tricia_26@hotmail.com.
08-26-2004, 12:05 PM
OK - Keep me posted. I can only accomodate up to 6 people at my house for a sit-down. Anyone going to the "Classic French" Cooking Light event at the Hayes Mansion (I got something in the mail about it)

At my place, I can only accomodate 6 people for a sit-down meal as well. So I'm with you on that. However, even though my place is small, I could fit more for a tapas type meal. In addition, if we ever wanted to, I do work at at retirement community in Santa Clara with a good activity room that has a kitchen - could be fun if we ever need a larger place.
I am interested in the cooking light event - what's the scoop as far as date, time, and price? Are you planning on going?

I received a postcard in the mail too....I haven't decided whether to go or not...

Thanks for the info. I just heard from Andrea directly and it looks like we are all still trying to decide. It seems a bit pricey, but could be worth it. I also have a lot going on that night and that week - but I could make it work...providing there are still tickets available.
Perhaps we should just all go - that way we won't have to wonder what it's all about - and it could be fun. That way we'll also know for next time ;o)
If we do decide to go, perhaps we could try and carpool? I know Andrea and I live very close to each other. Plau, since we have all been talking about our own supper club, it could be a great "first" meeting. Let me know what your thoughts are.

Hi - I'm interested in joining a supper club in the south bay area. I live in N. San Jose (by 237 and 680).
09-01-2004, 12:18 AM
There are three of us currently talking about starting a new San Jose club. We have all purchased tickets for the CL Event on Sept. 15th and will be having our first "meeting" there. Perhaps you would like to join us? If not, we can keep you posted on the formation of our group and when/where our next meeting will be. Feel free to let us know if you have any other questions or concerns in the meantime - or if you will be going to the CL event. So far the group consists of me, AndreaJS, and kgraham.

Thanks for the response. I'm a little slow learning this chat room thing so bear with me as I try to navigate. I sent you an email a few minutes ago because I wasn't sure if I was doing this right.
I am interested in joining the cooking club but don't know if I can make the cooking light event. I'll let you know.
09-04-2004, 06:12 PM
Hi! I live in Los Altos and have wanted to join/start a supper club for quite some time. Would love to be a part of one. Let me know.
09-04-2004, 11:08 PM
All the posts before mine on 8/24/04 were posted in late 2003. It is unclear if Belinda or any of those other people ever started a supper club.
There are three or four of us that are currently trying to form a supper club, and we will be having our first informal "meeting" at the CL Event Sept. 15th. After that, we will most likely post a message with more details on the message board. Of course, it would be great to have all interested people join us at the CL event if possible.
In the meantime, please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
09-07-2004, 03:35 AM
What is the CL event and where is it? I work and can't make it if it is during the day.
I did not realize that message had been posted in 2003!!!

The CL Event is a supper club cooking demonstration/helpful hints/fun event.
The official blurb reads:

It's at 6pm, but open seating begins at 5:30 - You can see the blurb at http://www.cookinglight.com/cooking/web/events/happenings/

Thanks for the info. I doubt I will be able to make it but would love to know if anyone from our area is interested in forming a supper club.
09-11-2004, 12:12 PM
There are at least three of us who will be starting a supper club. The event is our first "meeting." We will submit another post after the event to let anyone else that is interested know where the next meeting will be. Hope to see you then.....
09-13-2004, 10:43 PM
I would really like to join the supper club (I currently live in Santa Clara). Unfortunately, I am unable to make it to the Classic French event. However, I would love to meet you all and try to arrange to get this thing going.
Is anyone able to get together some evening during the week of the 20th?
09-14-2004, 07:42 PM
Sorry you can't make it tomorrow night. We will let you know as soon as we have our next meeting scheduled so you can join us then...
09-14-2004, 08:19 PM
I"m also interested in joining a supper club in the Sunnyvale-Mountain View area. I live in Sunnyvale. Please let me know if you will be forming a group or not.
09-15-2004, 11:42 PM
Tha CL Event was amazing........All who went had a great time!! Those of us who are starting a Santa Clara/San Jose area Supper Club had a fun time meeting each other for the first time.
We will be haveing a more "formal" meeting next week Thursday Sept. 23 at one member's house in San Jose. The meeting will be at 7:00p.m.
If you are interested, please e-mail me directly at Tricia_26@hotmail.com with Supper Club in the subject line. I will mail you with all the details........
Looking forward to seeing all the people I met tonight, and meeting additional interested parties.
09-16-2004, 10:58 PM
My name is Carol and I just registered for this awesome Cooking Light website board today - BTW it was the Sept issue that gave me the idea to look into supper clubs... I would very much like to part of a newly forming club in the SJ area (I live in Willow Glen)... I will email Trish directly, but I wanted to say more publicly that I hope to meet you all soon.
09-21-2004, 11:42 AM
I just want to post a quick hello and say that I am looking forward to meeting people on Thursday and I hope the club takes off.
09-25-2004, 03:26 PM
I just wanted to post an update on the San Jose Area supper club. There were 7 people that got together this past Thursday for our first "formal" meeting. As a group, it was decided that 7 members is our maximum as many of us can only fit this many into our homes. So, at the moment, this club is closed to new members.
It is our hope that the 5 of you who could not make it to the meeting - form your own club. We also hope that the two clubs can get together on occasion for special events.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

My name is Carolyn Hooper and I live in Saratoga. I'm 24 years old and love cooking, wine and great friends as well. I'm interested in the possibility of a supper club and would love to know a little bit more about you the possibility of a club. It sounds like a lot of fun! Has the club been set up? Any takings? Let me know. I'd love to connect!
09-27-2004, 08:30 PM
For those of you who are still looking for a supper club, I've started a thread to try to organize another one. I believe I called it something along the lines of "New San Jose Area Supper Club." If any of you are interested, I'd love to include you.
