Has your circle of friends become smaller? Are you new to the neighborhood and looking to meet new people? Have you lived in Bay Ridge but find yourself looking to make new friends? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this group is perfect for you!
This group was started to create a way for people living in Bay Ridge to meet and develop new friends. If you live outside of Bay Ridge you are also welcome! Though most of our activities are in Bay Ridge they are not limited to the area. Our activities include dinners and brunches at many of the great local restaurants, happy hours exploring new and well established bars, bowling, pool, cemetery tours and picnics in our beautiful parks.
As a member of the Bay Ridge Friends we ask is that you pledge to :
1 . Be kind and respectful. We hope this never happens but the organizers will remove anyone deemed to be disruptive and/or disrespectful from the group.
2. Make an effort to be welcoming to new members. We don't want cliques as it defeats our purpose. If you see someone being shy, go up and say "Hello."
3. Respect the RSVP! If you cannot make an event you RSVP'd "yes" to please let us know. We understand you may have a busy schedule and your plans may change so make sure you change your RSVP, especially if it a time or space-sensitive event. We do keep track of "no shows". Guests are more than welcome to attend but please include them in your RSVP.
Also, remember, when you make friends with people in the group, put in the effort to maintain the friendship. That's what this group is about-FRIENDS!
