What we're about

Welcome to the Number One Place Where 'WE' Socialize!!!

No Programming. Just Fun.

WE are Melanin professionals, business owners, and entrepreneurs who like to have fun. Our events focus on the socio-cultural needs of Homelanders, Millennials, and Gen Xers of African descent (Africans, Afro-Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, and Afro-Latinos); however, our allies are always welcome to join us. Meetups curated by this group will be at venues that provide corked beverages - be it cognac, wine, champagne, or sparkling cider.

How Much Fun.

A Boat Load. We host day parties, mixers, and dating events on the regular! We also attend festivals, conventions, and movies together!!

Join Now.

This is a group where you can really get to know people intimately as opposed to superficially. A group where you can call on someone when you really need to. A group where you'll feel accepted despite not being perfect...

Stay Connected.
