"Where Europeans and Europhiles can meet and make friends"

The aim of this group is to bring together internationally-minded people with a European affinity. Through convivial cross-cultural social gatherings we are building a vibrant circle of cosmopolitan friends who meet, talk, exchange experiences, practice their language skills, or just relax and feel at home.

Anyone born in Europe or who has lived there or has some other strong European connection is welcome. If an expatriate, you might have just recently relocated to the U.S. or be a long-time naturalized citizen. Current members include folks from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and many other countries.

Newcomers are particularly welcome. Come on your own or with a friend. You'll discover a friendly group where mingling is mandatory!

We usually meet every two weeks, alternating between events intended just for European expats and events for Europeans and Europhiles. Visit our About page for more information.
