This group seeks to provide a social outlet to a variety of experiences, so that we can enjoy Austin to its fullest while interacting with new young people in the city.

So, if you are ready to get out, meet new people, and explore the unique social life and outdoor opportunities of Austin; if you are are ready to try out new locales in different parts of town; and if you are ready to experience�a fun and different way explore the vibrant arts scene, the active community, the quirky festivals, and the outdoor opportunities that Austin has to offer:�then this group is for you!

This group is a collective: we want to hear from you! If you have a suggestion, please feel free to add it to the Ideas section, and please vote for suggestions you like. We are more than willing to schedule events that the group wants. Also, we are looking to expand our membership and our outreach by co-hosting events with other social groups on Meetup and groups in the city.

We only have two rules.

1. Don?t be a Dick!

? This is simple and most of you know what this means. If you say or do anything that would make anyone feel uncomfortable�(especially the women or minority groups) you will be warned once. After that if we are approached again you will be asked to leave and are no longer welcomed in the group.

2. Take Candy from Strangers!

? We all love candy, some of us will have some to give out.

Join us for a fun night of exploring and socializing as you follow the exploits of a someone who visited New York City, toured some awesome sites, met some new people, and got invited to a big party that night. That person made it to the party but left in a body bag! It is up to you to solve the mystery of what happened. We will put you together with others to trace our victim's steps during the day which will give you clues as to what happened. Along the way you will also learn some amazing things about NYC that you probably never knew. No experience or prior knowledge is needed! How it works: Register for a ticket and we will send you the code to join our Zoom meeting day of the event. Once logged in your host will explain the rules and randomly split you into teams (unless you have a team already). If you are registering with someone that will be sharing your Zoom log in please select 2 tickets (or more if you have multiple people playing with you). When the hunt starts we will email the clues page and you will start your online journey. Each group will have 30 minutes to find as many clues as possible. You will use those clues to piece together the answer to the mystery. What do I need? Computer with webcam or tablet/smartphone Can I attend alone? Right now 95% of those participating attend alone. How many are expected? This is a multi-group event so don't pay attention to RSVPs. Most of our virtual events have up to 20 participants unless otherwise specified.
