We love everything technology (old or new), are willing to wait in line to see the new Burton, Cameron, Jackson, Scott, or Spielberg flick on opening night (with no shame for smuggling in snacks from the grocery store) and love role-playing in whatever form it takes: pen and paper, live-action or online. We have clothing (not costumes) in our closet that would fit well in the 16th century or the 23rd century. We can master any interest that piques our curiosity, whether it be making crème brulee from scratch (kitchen torch!) or building a trebuchet (launch stuff!).
If you are searching for a group where you can enjoy activities such as conventions (sci-fi, ren, comic, steam punk, harry potter, etc.), movies (sci-fi, zombie, horror, fantasy), reenactments (civil war, star wars), museums, Shakespeare plays, cemetery photography, ghost tours, poetry readings and trustees of reservation sites/activities - then this is the place for you!
This group has activities for all ages, including family friendly events. If an event is family friendly, it will have "FF" in the Meetup title.
