Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is TDPP?

The Dinner Party Project is an invitation-only weekly dinner party event created to celebrate community and to connect Orlandoans over great food & interesting conversation. Seven guests are chosen at random to join one of our incredible Guest Hosts around the dinner table in a hip setting with gourmet eats prrpared by local chefs and artisans.

How much does it cost to come to a Dinner?

We leave that up to you!  We offer a Cocktail, 4 - Courses, Wine & Coffee.  We never want to price anyone out of coming. We ask that you pay what you would normally spend dining out, within the range of $50 - $90.

What if I can't afford a Dinner Party? 

If you personally can't afford it, please email danamarie@hellotdpp.com.  There are sometimes opportunities to trade services. If you would like to be generous towards your friends, you are welcome to pay for their Dinner. Just email schedule@hellotdpp.com to let us know.

Where are the Dinners located?

Dinners are located in various places around town.  From homes to event venues to art galleries. The more unique places the better!  If you would like to Host in your home or location, please email danamarie@hellotdpp.com.

How can I be a Guest Host / Venue Host?

Email danamarie@hellotdpp.com and we can set up a meeting to chat about it!

But what shall I wear!?

Don't sweat it. It's somewhere between casual and cocktail attire.  So nice jeans / pants and a button up or blazer is fine for the Gentlemen.  And a lovely dress or nice jeans with heels and a lovely top works for the Ladies. Most importantly, wear something you feel comfortable in.

Can I bring a Guest?

We encourage our Guests to come as individuals, as the Experience is all about meeting new people.  If you want to come as a couple we won't say no to that.  It does make for a fun Date Night. Please have your guest Sign Up and register separately. It is important that we have an individual profile with dietary information for each attendee.

What time do the Dinners start?

Most all of our Dinners start at 6:30p.  We will let you know if there is a different start time.

What if I can't come to the Dinner I am confirmed for?  

If you know that you can't make it to the Dinner, you can give your seat to a friend. Think of it like a Concert ticket, the ticket is not refundable, but you can give it away or sell it.  Please do let us know if someone else is coming in your place.

How can I come to another Dinner?

Good News! Your name will remain on the list, you don't have to Sign Up again. You can always email schedule@hellotdpp.com to be added to the Stand-By List for possible open seats.  And you can keep tabs on our Instagram for Open Seating that happens once a month.

I had SUCH a fun time. How can I leave a Tip for the Guest Chef and Guest Host?
