Top 5 Group Dinners + Brunches

LaScala_122_600pix

Whether it’s a birthday party, bachelorette, showing out-of-towners a good time or a reunion amongst friends or family, large dinners and brunches are great ways to bring people together and connect. Collecting funds from everyone for a large group can be a total pain though! That’s why we’ve seen thousands of groups tilting large group dinners and brunches – it takes the hassle out so you can spend more time enjoying your food (and drinks)! Here are some of our favorites that we’ve seen tilted recently:

Pop-Up Dinners: At $35 per person, this Burmese Pop-Up Dinner tilted in 24 hours and sold out in 48 hours. Tickets included an appetizer, entree, dessert, microbrewed beer and specialty cocktails! The organizers did a great job of updating guests with photos of some of the food they have cooking for the event. This event was a small pipe dream from two dudes who had a passion for Burmese food, and they were able to make it a reality through Crowdtilt.

Boozy Brunch: In San Francisco, this Yacht Week tilter took over Circa (known by many for their bottomless mimosas) for an all-inclusive boozy brunch to reminisce memories with the group that attended the vacation together. In New York, Grace used Crowdtilt to collect 30 bucks per person for her birthday brunch that also included bottomless drinks.

Bachelorette Dinner with a World-Class Chef: By setting a payment deadline for the cost of $75.68 each, Catherine and her friends were able to spend less time fumbling over loose change and more time enjoying their San Diego getaway! Catherine said: “I’ve used Crowdtilt a couple times while planning bachelorette and engagement parties and its such an easy way to split up the costs!!!”

bacheloretteMurder Mystery Dinner Party: A really fun and creative activity for groups! Their $50 per person included a 3 course dinner and 2 cocktails. We’ve actually seen several 20s-themed nights that include a game of Whodunnit, and the group is charged with the challenge of collectively finding the murderer in their midst.

murdermysteryBirthday Dinners: Susan celebrated her 30th with a little dinner and dancing in the Mission, and used Crowdtilt to cover the food, first round and post-dinner dancing. My friend Julia celebrated with some girlfriends over wine and dinner at A16, so we split the bill over our phones once we got the bill. Super easy to pull money together to make the occasion extra special.

If you aren’t using Crowdtilt to collect $$ for your dinner or brunch in advance, our mobile app makes it super easy to split the bill on the go even if it’s after the fact. What brunch or dinner do you have coming up next? Tell us about them!
