Explore Raleigh is most likely Raleigh's most awesome and unique meetup group. Basically we explore Raleigh. Yeah we keep things simple. We go out and eat on average about once a week. And we're subject to do just about anything that sounds fun. :)

Everyone is welcome but... if you're super creepy, a bit too handsy, a socially awkward drunk or you tend to display unnecessarily violent behavior. You'll be removed from the group with the quickness! We have no time for that bullshitery. :)

I'm likely to post stuff with only a couple days notice so check the calendar often. I recommend downloading the Meetup app on your phone, it makes things really easy.

Please visit and follow our blog site. We post awesome stuff there!
