What we're about

This is a group for those in their 20’s and 30’s who love being social and are looking to build genuine friendships. This group is about getting out and being social whether it’s conversing over dinner and drinks, or meeting up at a local festival. It doesn’t matter if you’re a 20 something professional, or a stay at home dad, come out and mingle!

Please note that hate and negativity have no place in this Meetup :).

We have a minimum of one Meetup per week, and also schedule day trips outside of the Chicagoland area and into the city bi-monthly, if not monthly.

For most events, we will be keeping the attendee limit at 10 or less so that we can actually get to know each other instead of getting lost in the chaos of a larger group.

*Please note that we have a strict 3-strikes policy for no-shows, as we give ample time to update RSVP’s and provide reminders the week prior. This is to ensure that people on the waitlist who truly want to attend have the chance to do so, and we always want to be courteous when reservations are involved.*

Vegandale Fest 🌱

100 S Lake Shore Dr

Hey guys! A few of us are headed to a Vegandale Fest on the 22nd and thought we’d extend the invite! Come for an hour or stay the whole time, Vegandale Fest never disappoints!! If you don’t plan on carpooling with us, I highly suggest using SpotHero to save some dough if you plan to drive! Tickets are only $10! Tickets and more info here 👇🏼: https://www.vegandalefest.com/chicago/tickets “WHAT IS VEGANDALE? Vegandale is a mecca for the ethically minded and hungry, with the best of vegan food, goods, and services co-existing on one city block in downtown Toronto. This premiere destination for the vegan and vegan curious is the only one of it’s kind, promoting a world where animal exploitation is a thing of the past. With our roots in abolitionism, our unapologetic messaging is the connection between each project we touch. BUT... we can't contain all of that to just one city block, so we're packing up and taking over the world!” This is my third year attending and I never want to leave! They have local vendors as well as vendors from all over the country and offer everything from healthier plant based fare, to vegan soul food. Great place to stock up on bath and beauty necessities as well! Feel free to bring reusable containers, a water bottle, or blanket as seating is limited. CASH is your friend as smaller vendors can’t accept debit. There is an ATM on site. Reach out if you want to carpool!
