What we're about

I would love for this to be a group where everyone feels welcome and that everyone including those like myself who are usually shy, have interests that they have a hard time sharing, or those who are just lonely can come and make friends in a low key/fun environment. Activities will be open to everything from hiking to bowling but there will be a particular focus on not just filling time but creating friendship that will carry outside of the group. I am creating this group based on a similar model in NYC that currently thrives and has all kinds of fun ideas that I would like to share here.

Meetup to Discuss your favorite....

Maglianero Cafe

This is a reposting of a meetup I scheduled for last year summer which unfortunately was rained out though a couple brave people showed up. It doesn't have to be as involved as I made it sound in the original posting. The intent is just to give people a chance to talk in some detail about something they really like(d) and why, like a movie, sport, game, book or any activity. So everyone can share something that's meaningful to them and learn something about each other. I know as a socially inhibited type myself it is always easier to talk about something I feel passionate about or interested in. Here is the original posting... I would like to propose a meet up for us to get together and discuss our favorite things and why they are our favorites. These could be books, movies, songs, poems, plays, sports, authors, actors, composers, activities, quotes, subjects, etc. Each person would take as much time, or as little, to talk about their favorite, but I’m hoping people will want to explain in some detail why something is their favorite thing. For instance, I feel I could talk for an hour about why Walter White from Breaking Bad is my favorite character from a TV series, but I promise not to. I like to have discussions over coffee so I’m proposing Maglianero Cafe as the location but this is just a suggestion. If people would prefer or feel more comfortable in a different spot, please say so in the comments and I would change it. If you feel that people might not be familiar with your favorite or could benefit from knowing ahead of time what it is to acquaint themselves with it consider mentioning it in the comments. If people are interested we could extend the meetup to include dinner afterwards. Hope you can make it! Tony
