Musical Chairs

Musical Chairs is a practice where we will be moving from table to table between courses.  This allows you to meet more people during the dinner phase.


This is how it works:

When you check in, you’ll be given your seat assignments for each course of the dinner.

When it is time to switch, you’ll move to the next table taking your silverware and drinks with you.  You’ll be given a 5-10 minute warning.  The switch is usually indicated by the clinking of a glass.  All attempts are made to maintain Male – Female ratio and to couples rotate together.
