2Gether 2sday Cafe (two-gether, two-sday cafe)

Dinnertime... oh my! what to cook, how to prepare it, and then... the prospect of eating alone. Mwah, maybe it'll be a sandwich again today. Let's break the cycle! How? An open-kitchen every Tuesday at the local cafe. When? On Tuesdays (2s-days!!) What? For a fixed price, cook together, enjoy together.

How would you describe your idea in one sentence?

Cook together, eat together, enjoy together.
At the local cafe, cross-generational evenings. Can you cook? Teach us! Can you set the table? Help out. Can you strike up a conversation? Get the group going.
The idea is to have a get together at the local cafe (on Tuesdays, or maybe on the days the kitchen staff is off). Everybody chips in with 'labour' and for a small fixed price everybody can enjoy a meal together.

What early, lightweight experiment can you try out in your own community to test any assumptions you might have about your idea?

Talk to cafe owners see if they would want to work on something like this: why and why not. Learn from that. Maybe also as the others mentioned: host a cross generational dinner.

What aspects of your idea could benefit from the input, skills or know-how of our OpenIDEO community?

Learnings from the other two ideas we have linked to this one. We had not looked at those until now, but are linking up because it would make lots of sense to learn together.
