Cheap Eats Group SYDNEY - Dancing at VillaCaprese 1

The Cheap Eats Group Sydney is a not-for-profit dining and dancing group originally founded in the early 19 80s. There are no joining/booking/membership fees. Dinners are held every week, at good restaurants within 10km of the Sydney CBD at a nominal cost of $60.00 or less, for three courses, coffee, BYOW corkage included.   40 plus age range.   50 plus age range.   Our CEG Members come from the baby-boomer generation, and includes those persons born from 19 46 and up until 19 75.

The best information to date suggests the group began its life about 19 82 in Willoughby, at The Bridgeview Hotel bistro where, on Wednesday Nights, a few people from the nearby 9 TV Network met for a sherbet or two and some nosh.       On occasions, when friends and family joined the party, there were migrations to the local restaurants for more formal dining.

It was from this seed that a band of about 10 to 20,   now calling themselves   The Cheap Eats Group   led by our Mr. Tony Narracott, (who passed away in   September 2007)   dined regularly each Wednesday at various BYOW restaurants around Sydney's inner suburbs, initially for a maximum cost of just $8.00 per person.

From the mid-eighties up until the early nineties, our Mr. John Murdoch, a quiet accountant, nursed this collective of mostly singles through its ups and downs.   Individual members organized the restaurants, predominantly Asian and almost always BYOW,     in Milsons Point, North Sydney, Crows Nest, Neutral Bay, Cremorne, Mosman.    

Some of the larger and more expensive, North Shore restaurants, have been very willing to host our Wednesday Party Night Dinners at very special rates of just $25.00 (before   g.s.t.   existed) for three course dining.     We had a huge party-night dinner every three months, that included dancing to great live music, and we had free champagne on arrival.

By the turn of the new century, our Mr. Bob Boyldew, (who passed away on   27 Feb 2008)   had organized music and dancing at every Wednesday Night dinner event, and in the year 2000, we had free champagne every third week. Membership of the Cheap Eats Group SYDNEY, numbers in the many thousands, and continues to increase each year, and during last year   ( 2009 ), over three hundred new single women and new single men joined CEG, and continues to increase with new single women and new single men joining each week, with over twenty people at most dinners (plus equal numbers), and we have all seen many great relationships blossom and bloom over the years.

Currently in 2014, all of the Saturday Night restaurants we now attend, usually provide us with three courses and coffee at a low all-inclusive cash price of $60.00 or less (including   g.s.t.).     There are selected Italian, Mediteranean, Greek, Thai, Indian, Asian and Modern Australian Restaurants in our detailed calendar of dining events, shown in the dine out programme.     They can seat at least 80 to 150 people, (this year, one new NORTH SHORE restaurant seats 180 people), are fully licensed with cash bar [drinks are pay as you go], and permit us to BYOW without any additional corkage charges. - - - Early Online-Email Bookings Essential - - -
