Remember Sex And The City? You know....Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. They experienced the best of times and the worst of times TOGETHER. This group is meant to create friendships as unforgettable and timeless as theirs. Let's GET OUT and have some FUN while creating our own SATC right here in Knoxville. We are about fun, friendship, support, laughter, travel, brunches, for ALL ladies no matter if you are a writer, publicist, art dealer, lawyer, single, married, mom, grandma, or anything in between. No matter what we're your people :)
How much does this cost?
There are ZERO fees for meeting up. And our events are NOT expensive (well most of them). We do that purposefully. It doesn't have to cost a lot to have a good time. Just pay your own way.
Our philosophy is to spend a little of our time/effort/creativity to plan quality events worthy of sharing our precious free time together. Meetup is just how we're introduced, the fun happens once you show up. So do something for yourself, be brave, don't just lurk, come out and have some FUN! Come join us and make new SATC friendships!
Some things we LOVE (what don't we love??): potlucks, game nights, improv/comedy shows, bonfires, picnics, concerts in the parks, street festivals, Wii tournaments, movies: in theaters, our homes, Film Festivals, and midnight showings, live music (local open mike nights, Karaoke), spa days, outlet shopping, bball games (decked out of course), volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, photography walks, a good book, Groupon deals, new restaurants, crafting parties, brunches, culinary classes, art exhibits, theater/plays, wine tastings, bowling, sushi happy hours, road trips, camping, biking, girls weekends, nature hiking: city, state, national parks, Smokies, urban hikes about the city, boating, kayaking, ballooning, poker/casino night, lectures, strolling through great Vintage/Consignment shops, horse-back riding, greening projects, slumber parties, fashion shows, canoeing, salsa/swing classes, skiing/snow boarding, ice skating, zip lining, ping-pong, the horse track races, kite flying, the occasional quirky road trip destination....you get the picture.
House rules (only a few and they're EASY):
1.Three strikes and you are out. It's a bummer but there are a lot of flakes on Meetup, 50% turn out is not uncommon in some groups, and that's just not cool when people are wait listed. So flake on your group three times and we'll be forced to give you the boot. Don't make us do it!!! It's easy, if you can't come, change your RSVP and BE KIND to your friends who want to go! We want our flake factor to = zero!
2. Profile Pic/First name required. Anonymous profiles impede new friendships, right? So, to join up, two things: 1. Your PRIMARY profile pic must clearly show your face (no unibomber look-a-likes or pics of your dog please), and 2. Please post your real first name (no avatars), Cool? More than just being friendly, sharing your face/name helps us find each other at events, and for re-connecting with your new friend whats her name after the event. :)
The first meetup is the hardest. Once you come to your first event with us you'll realize it's really FUN and we're just like you. So get over yourself and know that we all come by ourselves the first time, and then see a couple familiar faces the second and more the third, and then it's you're a vet and making another newbie's first time easier. So don't let a month go by before you come out to meetup. Jump right in and make a friend and have some FUN doing it!
Hope to meetup with you soon, laissez les bons temps rouler!
