What we're about

With 20,000+ members, we are the ORIGINAL 30s & 40s Going Out Group, and the largest 30s & 40s Meetup group in the world! This social group is for people mostly in their 30s and 40s, in the Washington DC metro area, who enjoy dining, BBQs, picnics, winery tours, cooking, outdoor activities, dinner parties, and other local activities.

This group is for married people, single people, new-in-towners, and people who have been in the DC area for a while and are simply looking for a new group to go out with. Membership is FREE, and you only have to be friendly and fun to join!

We host a regular-occurring happy hour where we raise money for various local charities (all voluntary donations). See the results of our fundraising here (http://bit.ly/2CmYVee).

Always have a reason to go out, travel, and have fun! We're the only social group you'll ever need!
