The key to successful events are the Urban Legends Event Hosts. When you attend an event you will be greeted like family, introduced to other members at the event, and you'll walk away with a sense of having met some great people. Notice the number of Members listed on our website? That is accurate. Every month, expired Memberships are given a grace period then removed, to maintain the currently active number of Members. It takes a lot of time and energy to keep up with a Social Club, but the extra effort is worthwhile. With accurate numbers we keep clear communication and plan successful Club Events. We know our Members and what they most enjoy.
We are an active, friendly group constantly introducing new friends while participating in outdoor adventures and daily social events. Urban Legends has well over 1000 event under our belts and always had a well planned Calendar with MANY events already arranged, to help you plan your schedule in advance.
New to Asheville? This is a great place to become part of a community and to learn your way around WNC. Maybe you need a little help transitioning back into single life. Or perhaps you are just looking for new activities. Urban Legends makes it easy to meet new friends with similar interests & become more active.
We take time to get to know each other and build on each others strengths. You get out of a club what you put into it. If you want to share a favorite hobby, consider becoming a Host and show everybody else how much fun your favorite activity can be! We're always interested in new adventures.
Urban Legends meets several times a week in different areas of town and posts budget-conscious events often, so you save money while having fun. We meet often enough that you become familiar with new friends.
We're all about... Trivia Games/Tournaments, Cookouts & Picnics, Exploration, Historic Areas, and Places of Interest, Target Shooting/ Gun Education, Comedy Clubs, Wine or Beer Tastings, Dinners, Live Music, Dancing, Festivals, Business Networking, Art, Photography, Movies of all kinds, kayaking, tubing, play flag football, white water, skydive, zipline, rock climb, explore waterfalls or photography, horseback ride, or travel, Day Trips, Travel, & Physical Activity, Quiet After-Work Events, House Parties, Game Nights/ Board Game Nights, Road Trips, Adventures, Creativity, Supporting Local Non-Profits, Giving Back to the Community, Scavenger Hunts, Book Club, Theater, Concerts, and Symphony If you dream about it, we'll help you make it happen!

Please read our Club Guidelines (below the video) before joining. You are responsible for knowing the Club Guidelines/FAQs when you become a Member.

Urban Legends is unusual in that we have intentionally become a community of friends, instead of simply meeting "acquaintances" in a public location, then going home. Become part of an active, fun, and growing community! Our Club Guidelines insist on basic courtesy. Members know what to expect, so they remain happy.
THE ABC'S OF URBAN LEGENDS:
A. Add a recognizable picture and a real name. One person per profile. Make another profile for your spouse.
B. If you RSVP to an event, be there. 3 No-Shows end your Membership. No-shows ruin our club reputation.
C. Pay $5 Dues at your first event- Cash- No Paypal.
You must meet the Club Organizer in person, to join. That means your first event is an rsvp to an event your Club Organizer (Laura) is attending. Your Event Host meets everybody in the club, to help in introducing the Community. No other Event Host is able to accept dues, since we do not see each other daily. Access to the website allows you to see our Calendar, Members, and History, but without meeting Laura and paying Dues, your access ends after 15 days.Your dues pay for the website fee, signs, daily event costs. reservation costs, tickets to fantastic performances, and of course our Anniversary Party.
Read below for more details:FAQs
+ No-Show in our club means "any reservation which is UNRSVPd less than 24 hours before an event" without an emergency. Consider making and breaking several large RSVPs with your favorite restaurant. The result would not be pleasant.
Specific events may require a more firm policy. *No-shows ruin opportunities for everyone else in the club by damaging our reputation with a business.
+How to find upcoming Events: Always look at the Calendar for our events. The Calendar is always complete, always lists every event. The FEATURED EVENT section on the Home Page may not list all events.
+ Renewing Members? While we'd love to write everyone who applies to ask if you plan to attend and join (or stay as a Member), it is impossible. Urban Legends removes 50-80 names monthly, mostly individuals who planned to join but forgot or just never attended an event to join. The month you joined is posted on your own profile, so you can keep up with your own Membership. Pay renewal dues within a month of the date you joined, and your Membership will not be interrupted. WE WANT ALL OF OUR FRIENDS TO STAY! However, life does change, jobs take our time, and families become complicated. If you are removed and want to return, simply reapply and you will be welcomed.
Renewing Members may mail their dues via post office. Email Laura for details.
+ Please Maintain a Correct Email Address, so you keep up with event changes. Blocked emails may cause Meetup.com to remove you to protect their computer server from returned emails. Urban Legends has nothing to do with that.
Q: Are social clubs just "singles" clubs?
Of course not. While a large portion of our membership is single, at least 25% of our members are in committed relationships and want to have fun just like single people. We are also not a "virtual" club. Applicants must meet the Club Organizer to become a member.
Q: May I bring guests to an event?
It depends. If the event has a limited number of spaces available then only Urban Legends members might be invited. Some events with limited attendance allow for Guest "Plus Ones".
Members RSVP for themselves. We want every Member to have the same opportunity to RSVP.
+ *When a guest has attended 3 events, the guest will be expected to join Urban Legends in order to attend more events.
+BE NICE! We are here as a friendly, inviting community which benefits everyone involved. Drama is not encouraged. Work it out in private if possible. Bickering is destructive. Insulting anyone in the club-especially on the club website- is not tolerated. Think before you post. You may be removed without refund at the discretion of the Club Organizer.
Urban Legends is your community. When you RSVP for a planned event, you and others on the event list share at least one common interest! Networking and friendship potential is unlimited!
