We had such great success and lots of fun at the last game night that we are going to make this a regular meetup! The first Friday of every month, in the evening. Bring food, snacks, good non-alcoholic beverages!
This is a group about socializing with others without the use of alcohol. We have get-togethers like pot-luck barbecues, movie nights, game nights, an evening of pool or bowling, walks or hikes, a day at the lake, etc., where no one involved is interested in including alcohol as part of the fun, and the activity doesn't end by migrating to the bar.
This group is for all ages, and whether you've just quit drinking; drink on occasion, but want to participate in 100% non drinking gatherings, or have never touched the stuff is completely irrelevant - it only matters that you want to get together to meet new and interesting people, and don't want to be concerned with some of the participants tying one on as part of the activity.
This is a social group, not a recovery group. That is to say that recovery is not the intended focus - good clean fun is. Of course, the topic of recovery is not banned or anything, but it is also not the purpose of the group - if that is what you are looking for, there are other groups out there that will accommodate you better. On the other hand, if you are in recovery and are simply looking for fun things to do with great people who aren't drinking in order to make it fun - this may be just what you're looking for.
I live in the north seattle area (close to Shoreline), and work downtown, so will prefer venues across that general area, but I am certainly open to making my way east or south if there is a lot of interest from those areas as well.
If this sounds like something you're looking for, please join us!
