Chicago Social Events: Get Out, Meet People & Make Friendshttps://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Social-Events/https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/e/2/c/4/global_221278052.jpeg20130123
Chicago Social Events will be putting together tons of events for 20-30 somethings that focus on one thing: Meeting people and having fun. Well, that's kind of two things...Our group will live by the motto "A good time is all about who you share it with". I've been putting up our events in other Meetup groups for the past several months and have seen amazing turnouts with such great people, so now it just makes sense to create my own!
We'll be organizing groups to do things like happy hours, trivia nights, visit museums, go to comedy shows, plan trolley crawls, wine tastings, tournaments, play in rec sports leagues and more! Does this sound like every other group on Meetup? Well it's definitely similar, but I'm really good at getting good deals for everyone and coming up with unique events that have recently been bringing out large groups of people that simply want to get out more and meet others. So if you're fresh in town (welcome!), are looking to make some new friends, and/or simply just want to spice things up and do something other than sitting in a bar with the same ol' folks, we're gonna be that spice.
I also run S3 Leagues (s3leagues.com), which offers THE BEST coed rec sports leagues in the city. Sure I'm biased, but the sweet thing is they really are amazing. These leagues are exclusively for singles where everyone joins by themselves or with friends and we create teams by age and where you live, with post-game festivities at a near-by bar. Rather than a one time event, these leagues last 5-8 weeks and allow you to foster stronger relationships as you come together every week during the season. Being new to town myself 5 years ago, I made all my best friends by joining a coed softball team. I knew I could make it better, and now 4 years we've had 6,600 past players, tons of new friends made, couples formed, and several marriages! I've recently been putting together more events to give players more to do during and between seasons, and while the leagues are for singles, the events that we do have ALWAYS been open to EVERYONE! Sometimes the best friendships and sparks come from simply expanding your social circle and getting out more. This is our goal, and we're excited to see you at an event or league!
