Welcome to Bars & Rec MKE. Here are a few things you should know about our group.
1. This group is about having fun. Our leadership team has varied interests, but we love getting out, being social, and enjoying the many great spots in Milwaukee and the surrounding areas. Our events will include common group activities such as trivia nights and board games and other recreational activities such as volleyball, bowling, and maybe some axe throwing. However, we aim to keep things fresh by not only scheduling recurring events but by constantly looking for new, low cost, interesting things to do.
2. Everyone is welcome Let’s be honest...trying to meet people when you’re an adult is hard so we want to provide a comfortable atmosphere where people can meet, converse, enjoy shared interests, and try new things. We strive to maintain a safe, welcoming, and positive atmosphere for everyone. Meetups are more fun when you have people of diverse backgrounds, ages, and interests. If you’re new to Meetup, we understand that you may be a little nervous about attending an event, but just show up. Our hosts and other Meetup members are incredibly welcoming.
3. Respect We expect everyone to be respectful. Most Meetup members are wonderful and have a great understanding of this but there are always a few that don’t, so we need to mention it. Respect everyone’s beliefs, cultures, ethnicities, sexual orientation, political affiliations, etc. Also, please show respect for people’s bodies and their minds. If it’s not yours, don’t touch it without consent. People know what they want and what they don’t so “no” means “stop.”
4. We’re a group of friends that came together as a result of Meetup. Clearly, we enjoy hanging out with each other and meeting new people since we started this group. So let’s go out, meet some people, and have some fun.
