What we're about
“All business is personal…Make your friends before you need them.” ~ Robert L Johnson, The First Black American Billionaire
Welcome to the Number One Place Where 'WE' Socialize!!!
No Programming. Just Fun.
Millennials & Gen Xers of African descent (Africans, Afro-Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, and Afro-Latinos) are welcome to join. Meetups curated by this group will be at venues that provide corked beverages - be it whiskey, wine, champagne, or sparkling cider. We will try to spread the Meetups evenly throughout the Tri-County area.
How Much Fun.
We come together to be social, to discuss proactive issues, to network professionally, to travel, to church together, to learn from one another and of course to have lots of fun. We are one big family!
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...
Us Bottle Poppers try to have fun!
Bring your ideas, style, flavor, and passion.
This group is the largest for African Americans in south Florida and you'll see there is a reason we are number 1
***Code of Conduct***
1. Positive vibes only
2. Your profile picture MUST BE OF YOU! You membership will be denied if it is not!
3. You must attend at least 3 events a year or your membership will be removed.
4. Shameless plugs don’t hurt; excessive ones won’t be tolerated.
We can switch up the rules as we grow. For now, feel free to have a good time, network, find a lunch date, shoot your shot, invite someone to a conference or sporting event, and get new clients.
Please send me a message if you are interested in a leadership role. So welcome and enjoy yourself!
