Adventurous when it comes to trying new restaurants, new cuisines, spirits, beer and wine?
Do you like meeting new interesting people?  Is it about time to step back out?  Are you new to Bend but don't know a soul?  Would you like to expand your social or business network?

If yes to any of the above, you've come to the right place!


We seek out happy hours, spirit, beer and wine tastings, lite meals, breakfasts, lunches, potlucks and occasional full dinners.  Our group provides a great opportunity to make new friends, and try out the local eateries, breweries, and wine bars in Central Oregon.  We also encourage our members to host gatherings at their homes, many themes are possible.

If you would like to recommend a venue or event, or host an event in your home, please do not hesitate to contact any of the organizers.

Do you have a smartphone? I highly recommend downloading the app. There you can "rsvp and un-rsvp" on the fly. You can add a guest, and remove one too. You'll receive pertinent messages from me, as well as announcements to meetups. Often folk complain that the meetups fill up so quickly (hint:  those folks use their cellphones). You are able to designate if you would like the information sent to you via email or text. It's so convenient.

Please post your name (at least your first name) and a current picture of yourself. It helps to identify you when a host takes 'roll call.' It helps me identify you as well. It also helps other members seek you out (had the two of you spent time in an engaging conversation). This group is not one of the many singles groups. Our group is all about fellowship--that's all.

All new members are given a 30-day trial period.  After that, you must pay your $5 annual dues to continue to be a member of this fine group.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
