“I didn’t think it was possible to get so many fun, interesting people (complete strangers to boot!) in the same room at the same time. —Man, age 30

“On my drive home, I couldn’t help thinking how much last night confirms exactly why I love this city of ours. There are not a lot of places that you can go to a dinner party with a room full of complete strangers and leave with new batch of friends.”—Woman, age 36

“I think I may be addicted to these parties because I can’t seem to turn them down when you send out the notices . . . ”—Man, age 33

“I’ve been to around five of the Minglers. The party is always awesome, and it eliminates one of the things I don’t like about going to most parties thrown by friends or people you know . . . that you already know everyone there and don’t meet anyone new.” —Man, age 34

“Such a great balance of ages, professions, neighborhoods—such a better option than the local corner bar.” —Man, age 32

“Since everyone shows up alone, there are no cliques to break into, no inside jokes, no cool kids.”—Man, age 44

“Having recently moved to Chicago, I knew no one. I go to business networking events all the time, but it’s always work, work, work. Then I discovered Mac ‘n Cheese. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun! Everyone was very social, was there to make new friends, and was all about having a good time. And as if that weren’t enough, Saya’s amazing job of keeping everyone happy throughout the night with food, drinks, and games definitely made the nominal price of admission well worth it.”—Man, age 31

“Thanks so much for creating a warm and welcoming environment full of interesting people.”—Woman, age 30
