We here at DWS headquarters are thankful for the great people we've met this year and the friends we kept since our creation last year.
We enjoyed hosting mixers in Santa Monica, on the promenade, Main Street, the First Annual Glow Event, on a party bus thru SM-Venice-MDR, Boogie-ing to Rolando's mix and enjoying the 13 hour party with fireworks during the July 4th Celebrations, Romping on a Cruise to Ensanada, Mexico, Dancing to Richard Blade at a Castle on Halloween, and a Luxery Bus Weekend Trip to Rosarito, Mexico.
After the New Years Eve Party we are planning some other Fun trips to the Caribbean, Mexico, Joshua Tree, San Francisco while also renting unique estates for our holiday parties, checking out local drinking establishments, art galleries and more.
I thank you for all your support and...
Wish you all a Wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year
New to the area? or just want to make some new friends? This meetup group, is about just coming out to a local pub/club/house in West LA (Santa Monica, Venice or Marina Del Ray) area and meeting others without the uncomfortableness of the typical bar scene.
Drinking with Strangers (DWS) is a non-profit for charity meetup group. Created originally for me to meet people when I moved to West LA from New York City in 2007, it has blossomed into one of LA's largest meetup groups and a place where anyone (friendly) can come out and enjoy good company with hundreds of other easy-going friendly people to drink/talk with and make friends.
With the assistance of Randy (No Flakes) and Chris K (Dive Bar Adventures), DWS throws what I like to call, 'Hard Core Mixer Parties' which encourages people to let loose, dress up (many theme'd parties) and socialize and meet people in a city where its usually not so easy to do so.
DWS is free to join, and we strive to avoid any cost for our parties, though some parties require entrance fee's by the venues. Any monetary amount received by myself is passed onto one of our children's charities including but not limited to a local camp for kids with Heart Disease. (contact me for further information).
Thanks for joining, I look forward to meeting you at the next party!
