Attention Northwest Philly socialites! There’s plenty to see and do here in Chestnut Hill, Mt. Airy, East Falls, Roxborough, Manayunk, West Oak Lane, Germantown and the 'burbs close by. As an alternative to dealing with the crowds, the traffic, and the parking (tickets!) in Center City, stay local and socialize close to your own 'hood. We’ll engage in indoor activities as well as outdoor ones - anything from a Sunday brunch to a walk in the Wissahickon. Everyone is welcome to join, especially those in their 30s and 40s who’d like to make new friends and expand their social network.
Here are some reasonable expectations that need to be stated:
• YOU MUST HAVE A SOLO CROPPED HEAD SHOT AS YOUR PROFILE PHOTO TO BE ADMITTED INTO THE GROUP. If we can't see your face using the Meetup mobile app on a smartphone, then we can't find you at an event. Please - don't waste your time applying without one; you'll automatically be rejected.
• Guys, we are not a singles / dating group. Although you're undoubtedly suave and desirable, women do not want to be "hit on" the first time you attend an event. Men who have done this in the past have generally not been well received. The bottom line is: don't make anyone feel uncomfortable.
• Quality over quantity. We're interested in attracting friendly people who enjoy hanging out together, not folks who join 50 Meetups but never show up.
• Courtesy counts. If you RSVP Yes to an event but can't make it, you must change your RSVP to No, or post a comment if the event has already started. Give us the same courtesy you would give to your friends, because we are. Generally speaking, three "no shows" will get you removed from the group.
That's it! We've got a good group of quality people who go out and have a great time at least once a week. We can always use a few more. Hopefully, you'll join us!
