About Epic Table

Epic Table started as an endeavor by Ricky and Whitney in Kansas City to have more dinner parties in our lives.

Read the Medium Article here about us starting this adventure.

It quickly became something so much better than just dinner – it turned into the nicest gift we’ve ever given ourselves.

In the last 18 months we’ve found amazing new friends, deepened fringe friendships into family and seen the most amazing connections come through listening to stories over a meal. We’ve had over 1100 guests come to our house and find meaningful connection.

We’ve loved this more than we can ever express and want to share it with as many people as possible.

Ricky and Whitney are moving to Bangladesh in July 2019 to volunteer with the Rohingya refugee crisis and will be moving our Epic Table events there but we’re talking to a few hospitable people to keep it going in Kansas City as well as spread it around the US and hopefully the world.

If you want to host please let us know – the booking system really helps facilitate the dinners and we want to help others experience the joy we’ve felt. Click here to reach out.

FAQ (this is going to be updating as we add new hosts)

Why did you start this?

Read the medium article .

Can I bring my kids?

Yes! We have a room with no pointy things and a wii on the projector in there. Also, if they like sitting with adults and having conversation they’re welcome at table.

New hosts might have different ability to accommodate so stay tuned.

What does it cost?

This is the most surprising question for me. Nothing. We might email you to bring a side but we do this because we love dinner parties and people. New hosts will probably do more potluck style dinners so be prepared to bring a little something.

Can I come more than once?

Absolutely! We’d love that.

What if I sign up and can’t come?

Please head over to the “dinner” link and update your rsvp. If possible also email the host.

I have allergies/dietary restrictions, is that a problem?

No. Make a note in the rsvp and we will try to cater. No problems so far.

Can I bring my friends?

Yes, the more the merrier.

I’ve never met you IRL, can I still come?

Yes! We LOVE meeting new people.

Can I bring my pet?


Is this Amway/Herbalife/doTerra/LifeVantage/Avon/Mary Kay?
