Christopher Dair and Zae Greenwood launched the very unique More the Merrier website last year which allows users to plan an entire social event online. Without having the hassle of juggling venues, the site gives you access to information on the best restaurants and activities which best suit groups of six or more people.
With suggestions that stretch from divorce parties to buck’s nights, dinner and ghost tours, botox brunches and beer masterclasses; More the Merrier is making expert socialites out of us all and Two Flat Whites chats to the innovators behind the site to find out what these merry events planners have in-store for a Sydney summer.
Q1: How did you come up with the idea of MTM?
It can be very stressful finding reliable group-friendly venues and experiences. Our aim was to create a platform that made organising great group occasions easy. With backgrounds in Events and the Entertainment industry, we were very familiar with the need to find unique group get-together options and the necessary information required when planning large get-togethers. We want MTM to be Sydney’s go to for group occasions.
Q2: What do you think about the Sydney scene for social dining compared to the rest of the world?
Sydney has plenty of wonderful social dining option. While it may not have the history or variety that some other super cities like London or New York have, Sydney has the climate and views for exceptional al fresco dining experiences.
Q3: What would be your ultimate, dream group occasion?
The most important component of any group occasion is friends, and then it’s a venue or experience that is group-friendly to create memories that last forever.
We recently talked about a ‘Hook, Line and Sinker’ experience that would have you enjoy a day out on a private fishing charter, then to finish you would pull into a harbour side restaurant where your catch of the day would be prepared by the chef for a seafood dinner like no other.
MTMs Hot Tips for Group Gatherings this Summer in Sydney
- Shed the winter layers and get out into Sydney’s great outdoors - pop up picnic anyone?
- Don’t let your group get stuck in the dreaded social rut of only attending parties and activities that are on your doorstep. You don’t become worldly by hanging around the same-old postcode.
- Look for dining options that have the share factor; it’s a more social, relaxed approach to group dining
- Get active and think of unique ways to get together with friends. It doesn’t need to be someone’s 30th to jump out of a plane or attend a dance class
