What we're about

New to Chicago? Welcome to town! Wanna add some fresh excitement to your social life? Perfect! This group is for you. But that's what every group says...How is this one different than all the others? Great question!

Not only do we put together amazing, custom events to help you enjoy our great city, including happy hours, holiday parties, boat trips, comedy nights, and SOOOO much more, but we specialize in running Simply Social coed recreational sports leagues. They are hands down THE BEST way to make new friends in Chicago. Here's why:

Of course one night get togethers are always fun, but do you have enough time to really connect with new people after one night? When playing in our SUPER social, just for fun, coed sports leagues, you get to hang out with the same people for a 5-8 week season, truly getting to know your teammates in a laid back, pressure-free atmosphere. You can join by yourself or with friends and we make teams by age group, half guys, half girls. In our leagues ALL teams walk or take a bus to the same bar after games, where all teams mix and mingle and the social experience kicks into full gear.

So whether you're fresh to Chicago, looking to make some new friends or just want more fun stuff to throw on your social calendar, JOIN US at our events or join a league! You'll be glad you did :)

I can't wait to meet everyone soon!

Cheers,
Ben
