The Progressive Dinner

at Gennaro's 5 North Square

A unique combination of fun, fine dining and team building.
$85per person

Tired of boring business dinners?

Would you like your group to meet each other in a fun, non-threatening way on the first night of a conference, or get to know each other better while enjoying a fabulous meal? The Progressive Dinner is just the recipe: a unique combination of fun, fine dining and team building.

Start the evening off right

Our “Cocktail Party” ice breaker starts the evening off right with a fun and energetic game for the entire group. Then, it’s fast-paced fun as you share a different table with different people for each course: Appetizer, Pasta, Main course and Dessert. Each course features a table top game or exercise for everyone to do together. It is all carefully designed to encourage team interaction and fun while improving team skills.

Depending upon your group size, each participant will dine, laugh and play with many new people!

Upon Arrival

Each guest will receive a place card with their name and several numbers on it. Each number is the table they will move to for their next course.  All table assignments are computer generated. There will be four numbers, four courses, and four chances to meet someone new and learn something surprising about them.

Guests will travel to their next table with their place card, napkin, cutlery, and drink. A new team building challenge will be facilitated at each table change.
