Update June 2021: With vaccines out, our communities reaching herd immunity, and social distancing restrictions lifting, we are eager to ramp up in person events again. Be on the look out!
With "shelter-in-place" active during 2020, we spun up a discord server to remain social, hangout and host virtual events! Feel free to mingle virtually at https://discord.gg/va27Uryp
From Hiking to Concerts to Surfing to Game Nights, We do it all!
If you are new to the area, you grew up here, or just visiting, doesn't matter, all are welcome! We are here to make new friends, catch-up with existing ones, and explore what the bay has to offer together! We hope to create a fun, vibrant, close knit community of friendly individuals who make meaningful connections while enjoying life, relaxing and letting loose, and checking off whatever is on that bucket list.
Some Events We've Done in the Past: - Camping trips - Napa Daytrip - Bubble Soccer - Paintballing - Escape Rooms - Rafting Trips - Glassblowing - Wine & Cheese Get-togethers - Potlucks - Game Nights - Movie Nights ... and much more! We update weekly so keep an eye out 😁
Let us know what you are interested in and we will make it a reality~
General Housekeeping Rules + Useful Info/Tips (Please read me!) : - Always join the Waitlist even if RSVP is full. We oftentimes expand the cap depending on interest. Also last minute drop outs commonly occur so there is a high chance you will be moved over to going. - No-Shows: While we understand last minute emergencies (please just let us know by messaging event host), chronic no-showers (3+) on the other hand will be warned and may be put on suspension if they persist. We want to be respectful, and keep spots open to people that can attend and fill a spot when possible. The best way to avoid getting marked down is to update your rsvp the day before an event or find someone on the waitlist that can take your spot, giving everyone an opportunity to attend. - Some events are gender balanced. If you are on the waitlist and others get past you, then it's because the organizers are trying to maintain a relative ratio for the comfort of all attendees. - Please be respectful to your fellow community members. We want to create a fun and safe environment for everyone to enjoy themselves in. - 3 Strike Rule: If you get 3 complaints against you under the span of 2 months and you have ignored our notifications, then we will suspend your membership. Based on the severity and history of complaints you may be kicked out prior to the 3 strikes. This applies to members and organizers alike. - If you have any comments/suggestions or a complaint, please reach out to organizers as we are always ready to take in your input.
We do try to gender balance the entire group, hence your request to join can get delayed :) We usually are good about not keeping you waiting too long. But to speed up the process, add a friend!
PS: Please have a clear, visible photo of yourself when joining. If you feel uncomfortable, we understand and recommend using a group photo or partial photo. It will make it easier for hosts to potentially identify you from the crowd when you come to an event. Since our ultimate goal is to foster a friendly community that has fun face to face interactions, we hope members feel as comfortable with meeting us here digitally as in-person. 😊
Want to become an organizer or co-host an event? Message an event organizer to get onboard! We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the fold. 😄
