What we're about

Houston is HUGE and only getting bigger. So for newcomers it is a daunting task to do anything. For locals...well they tend to stay in their local community and not venture out much. This group will explore familiar haunts along with periodically checking out some new areas of interest. We're always looking for new Assistant Organizers with new/fresh ideas. If you are willing to host events, please email me with your ideas. I would love to hear from you. Thanks, Nermine

PLEASE NOTE: We have a NO SHOW policy for this group. We're cracking down on those that RSVP and don't show up. Please only sign up for events if you know you can attend...if your plans change, please change your RSVP. (You can read more about the policy in the Discussion section). Many have been banned from the group already...don't let it happen to you. :)

Happy Hour 2.0

Cottonwood

Looking to take the average Happy Hour up a notch ? Join us for Happy Hour 2.0. Happy Hour 2.0 is a chance to grab a drink and a bite to eat and engage in conversations that go a little deeper than just talking about the weather. It's basically "happy hour with a spiritual twist". After we all get a chance to meet each other, we’ll have some discussions based on different spiritual themes. It's for people of all faiths (or no faith at all). And if you’re new to all of this, no worries – it’s up to each person how deep they want to go. Whether you want to share or just listen - it’s all good. So if you're tired of the same old small talk, come check out a better way to connect.
