What we're about

This group is for people in their 20’s and 30’s who have a hard time finding new friends and connecting with people. There are many myths about introverts, but even though we are not very outgoing, we still like to go out (or stay in!), have fun, and meet new people who have similar interests.

The main type of events that I have in mind are mostly food/drinks related: breakfast, brunch, lunch, coffee, picnics, happy hour, gelato, dinner, potlucks, dinner parties, you name it! Movie/Game nights are also an option.

Suggestions are welcome! I found many groups on Meetup, but most of them don’t seem very well organized: they don't have many events and people in them don’t seem very committed. I would like this group to be different.

If you'd like to be an Event Organizer, please let me know.

Book Club: Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke

Join us for light book discussion and happy hour refreshments. Synopsis from goodreads: During Sarah Smarsh’s turbulent childhood in Kansas in the 1980s and 1990s, the forces of cyclical poverty and the country’s changing economic policies solidified her family’s place among the working poor. By telling the story of her life and the lives of the people she loves, Smarsh challenges us to look more closely at the class divide in our country and examine the myths about people thought to be less because they earn less. Her personal history affirms the corrosive impact intergenerational poverty can have on individuals, families, and communities, and she explores this idea as lived experience, metaphor, and level of consciousness. Smarsh was born a fifth generation Kansas wheat farmer on her paternal side and the product of generations of teen mothers on her maternal side. Through her experiences growing up as the daughter of a dissatisfied young mother and raised predominantly by her grandmother on a farm thirty miles west of Wichita, we are given a unique and essential look into the lives of poor and working class Americans living in the heartland. Combining memoir with powerful analysis and cultural commentary, Heartland is an uncompromising look at class, identity, and the particular perils of having less in a country known for its excess.
