Have a FAVORITE area bistro? Know a place where you can get unique, tasty food? Want to host a home party/wine tasting event? What about a music venue featuring an amazing band that you know everyone will love? I would also be open to attending cultural events, such as plays in Chicago. If anyone can find discount ticket prices, please pass it on.

Though we are based in Lake County, IL, we will network while visiting establishments in LAKE, COOK and MCHENRY COUNTIES (and also Wisconsin) that provide good times and lasting memories. LOCALLY and REGIONALLY-OWNED BUSINESSES are the FOCUS OF THIS MEETUP. Whether an area gallery, winemaker, brewery, roadhouse, music club, ethnic eatery, diner, or pub dripping with charm… if they offer something unique, and have food, drink or entertainment, we’ll be there. EVERYONE HAS THEIR SECRET PLACE! Want to host a Meetup at your venue or home? Just send the details...

Share YOUR knowledge...we seek places having charm or are at least distinct, preferably offering live entertainment (blues, soul, rock, jazz, folk, rockabilly, old country, latin jazz, lounge singer) and/or a dance floor, rec room and killer jukebox.

The success of this group will be driven by YOUR great suggestions. **EMAIL THE ORGANIZER DIRECTLY WITH YOUR MEETUP IDEAS.**

Your membership signifies your agreement with conditions found in the "Learn More About This Group" section (below). THINK GLOBALLY… EAT, DRINK AND DANCE LOCALLY!!! Fun singles, couples, married friends, of all races & orientations, are welcome.
