What we're about

SM 2019 - Finding Female Friends Past Fifty (SM)

Finding Female Friends Past Fifty © , which started in Los Angeles in January 2016, has taken off! We now have (or soon will) chapters in New York City, Wash DC, Philadelphia, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Boulder, Chapel Hill, San Diego, Seattle, Boston, the SF Bay Area, Barcelona, Spain, and Perth, Australia.

2019 is still the Year of the Woman. We are finally getting the recognition we deserve. But our demographic, in particular, is one of transition. Children are gone, careers winding down, and schedules less cluttered. Just when we have more time for friends, we are most disconnected from the networks that allowed us to find them. FFF>F taps into this need. It explains why the New York Times article about us was so widely read, and still being shared.

If you're 50+, and looking for friends, you've found the right place. We are a group of vital, interesting, and supportive women. In the wisdom of our 5th decade, we have replaced competition with collaboration, and found self acceptance. After a few meetups, you will begin to make connections and form friendships....not overnight, but over time.

IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT! I require a picture that shows your features--a close-up of ONLY your head & shoulders, with no obscuring elements like sunglasses or low hats.

One more thing:

It’s essential, as a member of our group, that you have your EMAIL UPDATES and NOTIFICATIONS turned on in SETTINGS both on your desktop computer, AND ALSO ON YOUR PHONE APP. It is also necessary to check back frequently in the days before a scheduled event—stuff happens.

Here's a link with instructions for turning on Email Updates:

One last thing: FFF>F IS ABOUT FINDING FRIENDS, NOT CUSTOMERS. SO COME PREPARED FOR CONVERSATION AND CAMARADERIE. AND, PLEASE, LEAVE YOUR BUSINESS-NETWORKING HAT AT HOME.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Bee Gees Gold @ The Arlington Music Hall

Arlington Music Hall

The best tribute band I've seen so far. This will be my 3rd time. Lots of fun with these guys. Tickets aren't on sale yet, but keep watch. Small venue. All seats are good, but we're aiming for front/floor. ------------------ John Acosta as Barry Gibb has performed in Bee Gees Tributes all over the world. His portrayal of lead singer Barry Gibb is with a zest for detail, like no other. From the look to the falsetto you will close your eyes and say its Barry! John Acosta’s Bee Gees Gold tribute Is the ultimate salute, and experience of seeing the Bee Gees in their prime, LIVE ONCE AGAIN! With the detailed vocal stylings of John Acosta (Barry) , Daryll Borges (Robin) , Jeff Celentano (Maurice) as the brothers Gibb, there is a sensation that will make you blurt out , Wow.. I just seen and heard the Bee Gees! Backed by a live band, the Vegas Bee Gees tribute recreates the look and sound of the Bee Gees from the 60’s to the late 70’s, with their unique falsettos that made them legends.
