My favorite munch that I ever went to was in Portland. We got together to make ginger bread houses. I had actually never made a ginger bread house before, and I really had fun with it. The person throwing the munch had arranged to buy kits for each of us and candy (which we reimbursed her for) and everyone brought snacks to make it kind of a pot luck.
It is still a really cool memory because I like to try new things, enjoy pleasant conversation with new people, and feel accomplished at the end of it all.
I have not ever made a ginger bread house since, but I am really glad to say that I was able to do it once in my life. And it was even with cool people!
So my husband and I are going on vacation, and I was trying to think of somewhere to have a munch while on our trip. I looked at the Raccoon cafe (only two sad little raccoons) and all the bars and restaurants I like, but here’s the problem with that:
It’s loud in a restaurant, bar, or club.
I always felt like the point of a munch was to talk to people and get to know them. I thought it was to introduce friends, and make new friends.
It’s hard to do that in a loud and crowded environment.
Anyway, it made me think of how I would rather go hike to a temple and sit around in a circle chatting than go to a bar and scream over music.
What is your favorite place to hold a munch?
