An alternative to online dating for those of us still hopeful. A casual place to meet in "real time".
LACK of JUDGEMENT - COMPASSION - CHARITY - PATIENCE - FORGIVENESS - HOPE - FRIENDSHIP - KINDNESS
This group will give single men and women places to stop by for morning coffee, weeknight happy hours etc. A place where we can count on finding other singles in our age range who are wanting to socialize in a casual setting.
Remember when you could choose a place to go out for a drink or coffee and know you'd find friends, friends of friends, and attractive strangers? Where you might feel that spark of mutual interest that no online experience can substitute? Let's get that going again!
Morning coffee/tea will be as casual as it would be anytime you stop by your neighborhood coffeehouse. You don't need to dress up, just RSVP & show up!
Happy Hour will be an early evening time to try a new greater Portland/Vancouver spot, get a light bite and a beverage. Let's keep our group casual.... The worst that can happen is you'll make a few new friends....
Free Dance Lessons: Once a week we will get together for a free dance class and hopefully create a fun group of folks to lead and follow...
Occasional Outdoor Adventure. From time to time we will post a hike, bike ride, kayak event. If you ski, we can do that together too. If you join one of our outdoor adventures please leave your ego at home....
Bring a friend, we appreciate an RSVP because that way we can give a heads up to the coffee shops and happy hour venues. Let's have fun getting to know one another face to face.
VOLUNTEER TO BE AN EVENT ORGANIZER: Portland is a very big little city, one organizer or venue can't accommodate all of it or us but if we have 4 or 5 event hosts/organizers spread around weekly it should be great fun and include everyone. Especially if they are on different days so individuals can explore other areas. If you would like to host Happy Hour and coffee/tea at a favorite place in your area, let Gabriella know... (All additional hosts must have attended a minimum of 6 of our events)!
