What we're about

Welcome to Greater Cincinnati’s Meetup group, “BLACK LOVE & FRIENDS: GROWN SEXY WISE & MATURE” (BL&F).

BL&F was established in 2017, geared toward African-Americans plus unique friends of any color or nationality, age 30 to baby boomers. We are African-American based.

You are encouraged to join us.

We enjoy some of the finer things in life yet appreciate basic fun. We want to experience the excitement of making new friends and developing relationships while engaging in cool-azz activities.

Join us if you want more interesting variety in your Friday evenings or weekends. There may be week day activities too. Our activities or events include the following:

- Cultural, Meet & Greet/Happy Hours, Day Trips, Art events, Dining, Educational, Dancing (Latin, Line dancing, stepping, etc.), Parties, Sporting events, Outdoor Activities, Festivals, and more.

Phase 10

Red Squirrel

Come and hangout, play cards, eat, laugh, and have a merry ol' time. Even if you won't make it on time still come. There may be a table in need of a player. Phase 10 is a rummy-type card game with a challenging and exciting twist from the makers of UNO. The object of the game is to be the first player to complete 10 varied Phases. The twist is that each Phase to be completed is specific for each hand dealt. Those who complete the Phase advance to the next; but those that don't must try again.
