What we're about

This is a group for anyone in their 40s, 50s, and 60s interested in meeting people and getting out to do something fun! You are welcome whether you are single or married.

I created this meetup for residents of Chicago’s north side, including (but not limited to) Rogers Park, Edgewater, Andersonville, and Evanston. If the meetup interests you and you are from another part of Chicago, please join us!

I’d like to organize a range of activities/get togethers mostly on weekends - but maybe the occasional event during the week. Some examples: drinks and/or dinner at a restaurant, hiking, biking, skating, charitable events, art and cultural events, and more! I'm new at organizing meetup events and am not sure of costs involved, so there may be a charge depending on the activity.

You should join if you are interested in meeting new people and taking advantage of what Chicago and surrounds has to offer! If you do join please provide a real first name (no nicknames or made-up names) and a photo of yourself so I know who to look for at the meetups.

RSVP yes only if you intend on coming to the events. Kindly update your RSVP if you can’t make it.

Dinner & Music at R Public House Pub in Rogers Park

1508 W Jarvis Ave

Greetings, everyone! Well, finally spring has sprung! Let's celebrate by getting together at R Public House Pub in Rogers Park. On the menu: appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, and wood-fired pizzas (yum!) The last Saturday of the month is "Supper Club" night, and they have a prime rib special. Public House has a great beer selection and some fun cocktails. We'll meet at 6:00 and have some dinner and drinks. At 7:00 the Frank K Duo performs. This dynamic pair is a lot of fun and plays often at Public House! ***I am not sure if we'll be able to do separate checks, so please bring cash to make everything run smoother - it's just easier to total. Parking is limited. If you take the Red Line you can exit at the Jarvis stop. If you don't want to do the Red Line, I suggest Uber or Lyft - up to you. Check out the links below for more info on the menu and Frank K! http://rpublichouse.com/ http://www.frankkmusic.com/ Hope to see you there! Rita

Green Mill Jazz Club Uptown Poetry Slam

4802 N Broadway

Hello all! Join me at the Green Mill for the Uptown Poetry Slam on Sunday, May 26, Memorial Day weekend! What the heck is a poetry slam? It's a competition for poets who perform spoken word poetry. This slam has been a staple at the Green Mill Jazz Club since 1986. You'll definitely be entertained, and you'll also get to enjoy the unique ambience of the Green Mill! Whether you know something about poetry or not, it's a great time! ***There is a $7.00 cover charge for the poetry slam. Important to know: Green Mill takes cash only.*** The Green Mill is pretty cozy with limited seating. We may not be able to get one table all together, but hopefully we can get some tables close to each other. And just a heads up - if it fills up you may have to share a table with someone other than members of the Meetup group. Let's meet at 6:00 so we can get seats, have a drink and chat a bit. The evening starts with an open mic (7:00), a featured guest performance (8:00), and then the slam competition (9:00). The event ends at 10:00.
