What we're about
Upcoming events (5)
Howdy!! We have been doing this Artsy Zoom Thingy every Wed since about Jan.
All in all this will be a fun social evening where we accidentally learn something together.
In general we will cover three types of things:
A Museum or Place
A movement, type or theme.
A person, personality or subject
We will alternate each week between them. Just to mix it up and keep it interesting.
This week . . . we are going delving into Cubism & Picasso too
What does that mean? What will we be covering? Come and find out.
Schedule (note: THIS WEEK . . . ALL times are PST)
7:00-8:00 pm: Open Arrival and Open Social. Chit and Chat
7:45-8:00 pm: A little bit of Intro.
8:00-9:00 pm: Location ONE
9:00-9:15 pm: Intermission and Refreshments. Chit and Chat
9:15-10:00 pm: Location TWO
10 onwards more fun open social.
What does that mean?
It means the main program will start sharp at 8PM. You will need to be ready to go and there BEFORE 8.
Ideally . . . you should be there at least by 7:45PM.
However . . . The ZOOM will be open starting at 7. Folks will be there and be social and chit and chat. (Spoiler alert: the social thing is kinda important).
OK . . . How do I get to go?
To Join The Event you MUST fill out this form/link so we have your correct email to email you the Zoom Link on the day of the event. It also asks some other things too. If you have attended an Art Soirée Zoóm of ours before . . . you do not need to do the Form a second time.
To Join The Event you MUST fill out this form/link (Yes. We did say this twice)
This is all sounds great. How much does it cost?
Oh yes . . . The cost is FREE!
That's a bargain even at twice the price!!!!
So why not splurge and come and share your time with us.
I know. You just read this whole thing and you are saying to yourself . . ."Self, . . . exactly what will they be covering or doing?"
And the answer is simple. at 7:45 we will do some intros of where/what, and at 8 we dive right in.
For an online event hopefully you will feel as if you have visited far off places and times. And maybe even see yourself in the those places and scenes.
We have been watching other artsy fartsy things being done. They tend to be essentially a power point. When it says "lecture" you better run!! There is no dynamic discussion or engagement. No interaction and no social.
AND . . . Most of all . . you really don't visit a place or meet the other people.
Just like anything else we do . . . ours will be different.
We will come out the other side richer for the experience.
Yes. This does mean there is no canned script.
Wait!! I just read this and I still do not know where to go. When will I know what places?
On the day of the event you will get an email 2 or 3 hours before the event. It will give all that info, plus some other zingers too.
For those not aware I do have classical art training, as well as years of working within the art industry with curators, conservators, collectors, artists, museums, studios and institutions. So we will make this all very worthwhile.
Our last one had about 70 folks show. Super fun. This event is cross posted to several like-minded groups.
Join us in this Art Adventure Social Soirée. Make some friends while learning and sharing, and sharing some learning.
IF you went to our last one you do NOT need to re-fill-out the google form.
BUT . . .. you may want to see what else we do

*TO ATTEND GET TICKETS AT: https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/salsa127/dates/ (*Multiple Meetup groups are co-organizing so RSVP's shown are just a small portion of the total members attending. At least 15 will be attending. Limited # of spots available and this event sells out quickly!)
Salsa and Bachata are the most popular of all the Latin dance styles, not to mention a fun way way to get some exercise! Learn new moves and make new friends. All ages are welcome.
You'll receive a professional 60 minute dance lesson - all from the comfort and privacy of your own home! It doesn't matter if you've never danced before or if you're a pro. You can dance by yourself or with a partner. Since we've taken our popular latin dance lessons online, they sell out each time so don't wait to get your tickets!
All you need is either a laptop/phone/tablet. Everyone who registers for a ticket will be sent a secured Zoom link on the day of the event.
Once you login to the event, you'll get to see all of the other participants via video. We ask that everyone keeps their camera on so that the instructor can better help you with your moves.
Multiple Meetup groups are co-organizing this event so the RSVP's shown here won't reflect total # of members attending. Cost: $15-$20 depending on how early you register.
*P.S. Dance instructors/event organizers are being hit especially hard right now. We are working hard to create fun virtual events for you to participate and meet/make new friends. We appreciate your support during this trying time.

Let's take it back to a simpler (and a lot more fun) time! Our 80s & 90s Trivia Night is of our most popular and well attended online meetups. Categories will be 80s & 90s Movies, Music, Sports, Pop Culture, Television). Prizes include Amazon Gift Cards and more!!
HOW IT WORKS:
You can attend via a computer & Webcam or Smartphone/Ipad/Tablet.
This completely online event will be LIVE and you will be able to see and hear the other participants while playing. In addition you get to meet and interact with other participants.
At game time, your host will read off 80s & 90s Trivia questions. Your goal is to come up with the right answer to each question and write it down on your paper. Once the round is over (about 6 questions), we will go through the answers and determine who had the highest score for the round. They will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize at the end of the event.
We will have multiple rounds of play and have a system to also virtually introduce you to other participants.
HOW DO YOU FIND THE VIRTUAL ROOM:
After you purchase your ticket, you will get a confirmation with the zoom link for you to use to log in.
RSVPS ON HERE ARE NOT REFLECTIVE OF ACTUAL ATTENDANCE as this is a multi group event.
Cost: $15- $20 depending on how early you register.

The 20s suck so far so we're taking you back…way back to the 80s & 90s! Celebrate our 1 year anniversary of this very popular party…and most likely our last (virtual) dance!
Where do you 'Wannabe' Saturday night? At our 80 & 90's House Party!! Get in your jammies, grab a drink, and get ready to Footloose & Flashdance! Virtual Insanity indeed!
One more time we're going to put the "dance" in Social Dis-dance! Virtually party like it's '1999' while "everyone's dancing their troubles away, Come join our party, See how we play!"
Make new friends while singing & dancing to all your favorite party songs - all while you jam in your jammies from the comfort of your own home! Hang out and talk with fellow 80s & 90s fans and request songs/make shout outs on the Zoom chat. We'll also be doing music trivia along with contests and prizes!
Once it's time to dance, we'll mute the mics and leave your VIDEO ON to see each other dancing. Choose "gallery view" and use "chat" to talk to others and play along with the music trivia.
What to expect:
*Live DJ Dance Party
*80s & 90s Trivia Games
*Prizes for Best Dancers
*Best PJ's & Virtual Background Contest
You'll be 'Walking On Sunshine' and feeling 'Good Vibrations' because we’re 'Gonna Make You Sweat' as you 'Walk Like An Egyptian', 'Push It', 'Bust A Move', and 'Jump Around'.
When you register for a ticket, you will be sent a secured Zoom link to join on the DAY OF THE EVENT (please check your spam folder if you don't see it then). Cost: $12-$15 depending on how early you register.
