You have been Facebook friends for a year before you meet
You go around the table and introduce yourself with your twitter ID
You pause before ordering to all update your Twitter/ Facebook status
You make the waiter take your picture over and over with everyone’s cell phones
You have a hard time tweeting said picture because you have to fit in so many people’s Twitter IDs
You take pictures of your food at dinner
You all spend dinner checking your phones and no one seems to think it is rude
You love every minute of dinner with these “strangers” and look forward to seeing them again.
