Welcome to "Mingling in the Burbs", a FUN, ACTIVE, SOCIAL club for both men and women residing in the Chicago land area.

We are a very friendly bunch that likes to try out new things whether it be a new bar/club, bowling alley, restaurant or festival.  We also plan activities such as Happy Hours, Dance Nights, Co-ed Mixers and "hands on" activities such as Cooking Classes/Demos and Paint Party Nights. While most of our meetups are held in the North & Northwest suburbs we also plan meetups in the city from time to time. There are always tons of fun and unique things to do in this group and we are always open to your suggestions!

Please note: You will "feel at home" in this group if you are "between the ages of 30-59 years old and are looking to make new friends in the area". This is NOT a "hook-up" group. This is a meet-up group. We have singles, divorcees, and married members. If you ARE single we plan several singles events a year where you may just meet that special someone, however this is truly a group to meet people in the area that may share similar interests as yourself. If you are a "planner" interested in coordinating events please let us know! If you plan four or more events a year for us we will waive your yearly $10 membership fee!


Our yearly membership fee is only $10.00 a year (less than .85 a month!) and is to cover the cost of running this meetup site. While you do not have to pay to be a member of meetup.com, as planners we have to pay every few months to host this webpage.  You also have a "60-day free trial" to check us out first and meet our great members which we hope you will take the opportunity to do!

We sincerely look forward to meeting you at our next Mingling in the Burbs event! We want this to be a fun group for all.  If you have any suggestions for future meetups please do not hesitate to suggest. This is YOUR group and we welcome you with open arms. We hope to see you soon!

Also, if you are a WOMAN looking strictly for a "women only" friendship group we also have a very successful Sister group, The Sandbox Social Club, here on meetup. Below are links to check us out! We plan over 40 (yes, 40) meetups a year and have a high return rate of "highly engaged" members. If you are a lady looking to make new friends we encourage you to give us a try.  Please visit our links below including our OFFICIAL Facebook site! Thank you!
