Do you enjoy dining out now and then?  Do you enjoy trying new places? If so, here’s your chance to do so in the company of other members of the Newcomers Club.

Dining Out events occur monthly and will get you out into New Bern and surrounding area establishments for brunch, lunch or dinner.  Because there has been a long hiatus since this group has been able to gather in larger numbers in area restaurants, we don’t have a set day to meet at this time.

To be included in this group for future events, sign up online at: joannbogle295@gmail.com

Or: at the Dining Out activity table at the Club’s general meeting.

Several weeks before a scheduled outing, members on the Dining Out list will be emailed details and the opportunity to sign up for the event.  Simply respond to that email if you plan to attend prior to the posted deadline.  Only those who RSVP will be guaranteed a spot at the restaurant.

Past Dining Out Events

Sake Restaurant, November, 2021

Thank you to those who joined us for the hibachi dinner at Sake.  We had 22 participants, and it looked like there was a lot of good conversation at the tables.  I hope new connections were made.  It was nice to see many of you at the Newcomers Holiday party last week at Carolina Colours.

Wednesday, January 26 - 6:30 PM

The Chelsea (335 Middle Street - Corner of Middle and Broad Streets)


Our next outing will be to THE CHELSEA, which is located in a historic building, it was first used as a pharmacy by local pharmacist Caleb Bradham, inventor of Pepsi-Cola.  Built in 1912 and restored in the 1990’s, The Chelsea has long been one of New Bern’s most popular restaurants.

We will meet WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, AT 6:30 to enjoy dinner in the upstairs dining room (not the banquet room) where we will order from the menu.  You’ll be able to order whatever suits your fancy and pay with separate checks while enjoying conversation at tables of 6-10 diners.  You can check out the Chelsea menu at their website.

In order to have a private space and access to the full menu, we are limited to a maximum of 25 guests.  Therefore, the first 25 who contact me will make the list.  I will happily start a waiting list should we fill up early.  PLEASE CONTACT ME BY PHONE OR EMAIL PRIOR TO JANUARY 23 TO GET YOUR NAME ON THE LIST.  SHOULD YOU NEED TO CANCEL, PLEASE DO SO BY JANUARY 24 SO I CAN CONTACT THOSE ON THE WAITING LIST.
