I Sat Down With 7 Random Strangers For Dinner — Here’s What Happened
“Hey, how are you?” asks our host, warmly. The voice belongs to David King, the entrepreneur and instigator who put me in this predicament. I’d met him earlier in the week to talk about what the night’s festivities had in store for us.
King is the founder of RNDMDNR (pronounced “Random Dinner”). Half social experiment and half culinary adventure, it’s an initiative that places groups of strangers together at a restaurant table in the hopes of stoking authentic connections over the seemingly lost art of conversation — the kind of connection often missing from the cold networking events or dating apps that city dwellers are accustomed to.
