Sorry to hear your table mates were a bust! For every person who doesn't share your opinions there are others who resonate with you. If you are social creatures, give it another chance and then ask to eat alone if the first night doesn't work out. But I would hate to think you missed meeting awesome people like us who don't pray over our meal and love more than one glass of wine and agree politics are not topic for mixed company! Heehee. You know what I mean!
