What we're about


So you're looking for something to do in Boston… You're looking for great events… You're looking to meet new people and make new friends... You're also open to new ideas and trying new things...


Social In Boston is a group organized through the Meetup platform. If you are unfamiliar with Meetup, just think of it as the opposite of Facebook. Facebook is for everyone you already know in real life to connect with you online, whereas Meetup is for a bunch of people you don't know to sign up for an event online and meet up in real life. :)

1. SIB Is A Social Network of Friendly People...

Social In Boston is a social network of friendly people. If your social network has dried up; If you're out of college and your friends have moved on; If your friends are all married; If you and your significant other are looking for to get out there together; If you're new to the city and haven't made any friends yet; If you've never had many friends at all. Whatever it is, you'll find it here. :)

2. SIB Is Also A Fun Activities Group...

We are fun activities group! All of our events take place in public venues, and you are even welcome to bring a friend if it helps you get comfortable. Activities we do include bowling, billiards, social mixers, ice skating, snow tubing, dodgeball, live music shows, museums, dinners, and many more. Many events are free, some events have a small fee, usually $5 to $10. Once in a while we'll have a more expensive event.

There are many large events where the age range is anywhere from 20's to early 40's, it's always a mix and they are always different.

Social In Boston Group Rules:


Your RSVP is your word that you will show up. Please RSVP only when you know you can make it and remember to keep your RSVP up to date if your plans to attend happen to change.

Reasons for this include other members counting on you to show up, showing respect for the organizers efforts, and even the amount of food that gets made for certain events.


Social In Boston only accepts members with clear photo's of their face set as the main photo in their profile. This must be maintained for the duration of your membership. Requests to join from people without proper photo's will be deleted. Photos are required so we know who you are at events and also to cut down on the amount of spam accounts that try to infiltrate the group.


The group is set to filter applicants to prevent the unscrupulous spamming of our members by people that are too lazy to do the real work required to find clients or promote their businesses to.

I will bring a tarot deck and maybe give you a reading if you want, (I was told at the last event I was pretty accurate and to "put those cards away" hahaha! It was a good reading, don't worry.

HAVANA! Learn To Salsa/Bachata/Merengue!🕺Vamos A Bailar!

***Please read the whole post*** We had such a great time and turn out last time for this meetup and I've had several people approach me since about how they were unable to come last time. So here we are and I am EXCITED!!!!!!! This event is cross posted in other locations. Have you ever wanted to learn how to salsa, bachata and even merengue dance? Already know how but haven't been able to go out and use what you have learned!? HAVANA is awesome because not only are they comprehensive and easy to learn from the instructors, but the studio turns into a dance platform so you get to practice what you just learned with others! This lets you feel un-judged as you prefect your moves! So put on your dance shoes, bring a friend or two and come join us! I highly suggest you meet us at the first location so you can talk and get to know others at Mainely Burgers central sq. 704 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA 02139 AT 7PM. Meeting early will help so when surrounded by non meetup people at the Venue you wont feel overwhelmed because you now have FRIENDS! Plus me talking over loud music equal's me losing my voice... no bueno! Mainely Burgers/Talking 7pm-9PM Havana Dancing 9PM-2AM We will walk over to Havana at 9PM together. If anyone needs cash we can do a quick stop at CVS nearby for a .30 purchase with cash back (speaking from experience.) Beginner's very welcome No partners required Feel free to bring friends! Salsa Lessons start promptly at 9-10pm Salsa/Bachata/Merengue Dance Party: 10pm-2am $12 cash ONLY at the door please. Parking nearby $2.25 per hour, max $9/night next to Havana. R.S.V.P: Etiquette for my meetups, please be considerate. I r.s.v.p in advanced at restaurants. If you are a hard maybe/you feel like death though... just change your r.s.v.p accordingly.
