This group was created for those in need of some good company, fun and socializing after a long day at work without having to drive far and wide. While DC has lots to offer, there are times when I just don't want to make the drive. I started this group because I have been in the area for many years but I never hang out here. I would like to meet others who share the same sentiment and interest. We need more groups in this area of VA. The area is expanding, diversifying and new establishments are popping up all over the place, so let's go explore!
This is a group for African American professionals (circa ages 30-50) to connect, have fun and build friendships in the process. We try to create a platform for connecting mature and progressive like-minded men and women to mix, mingle and network. There are no "cliques" in this group...and we don't tolerate negativity, gossiping, speaking poorly of members etc. Basically NO DRAMA. We are here to have fun. If any of this describes you then please join. We look forward to meeting you.
Many events will take place in the local N. Virginia Route 66 area with some occasional DC events and weekend trips. We will meet for dining, happy hours, sporting events, outdoor activities, movies, game nights, concerts, themed house gatherings, and anything else fun. If you know of any hidden gems please don't hesitate to make a suggestion. Members are encouraged to suggest and host outings, happy hours, dinners or any other ideas you may have. No idea is a bad idea. <br>
