If you were born in the former USSR, or have any cultural or emotional ties with Russia and its parts, this group is for you! We are a society of active, young (20's - 30's), physically fit and adventurous people with healthy social and professional lives. Our goal is to make new friends, have fun, and contribute to the social value of the group.
We're a group that meets OFFLINE regularly. Our past activities included hiking/skiing trips, opera nights, wine tastings, wall climbing, bowling, movies, comedy clubs, happy hours, bicycle rides, picnics, museum outings, and much, much more.
Since mid-2007, we had over 280 events. Our team has grown strong and great relationships have formed. Many members have been continuously contributing to the group in some way, be it carpooling, places to gather, ideas on future fun events, information about cool places to visit in the city, professional expertise, or simply good mood and great conversation. We're very diverse.
Our members are 20-40 y/o and all fluent in Russian. If you are outside this range or simply want to learn the language, please search meetup.com for a more appropriate group in your area.
