"I hope we get the whole spectrum of people from twentysomething hipsters to doctors, med school students, baristas and blue-collar workers," says Warshauer.

A mixed bag of everyday Joes and Susans cavorting together just for the fun of it? We're for it. Here's some inspiration.

The very first Lunch Beat event in June 2010 had only fourteen attendants. And now chapters all over the world look like this! So, if your coworkers aren't so willing to participate in a Harlem Shake video, ditch the doldrums of the workplace for a minute and bump butts with some strangers over lunch. Then, someday, brag about how that small group became a part of something much bigger.

DJ Boogieman will play primarily funk and disco along with current boogie for the debut Lunch Beat in St. Louis, though he plans to involve other DJs in town over time. The HandleBar will have its usual menu available -- try the borscht, says Warshauer.
