What we're about

This is a group for all people who love to travel and are also interested in local events and festivals. Weekend getaways in Michigan and other fun cities in the states and Canada. Longer getaways USA, Canada, Mexico, European and cruises. We will include local events of interest as well. The purpose is to have fun, meet new people, share experiences see new places and possibly get better rates.

I do not have age, marital status, or any other restrictions however, I would like you to post a photo of yourself. Scenic photo's are nice but I will not be able to recognize you at an event so please post one.

Most of the members are over 40-50+ and also single. We have a few couples as well.


I am not fond of no shows and will remove you from the group if you have 2 no show. Please if something comes up, have the courtesy to change your RSVP to no!


I am getting tougher on NO SHOWS! If there are restaurant reservations and or a waitlist and you do not bother to show up you will be immediately removed for 3 months at which time you will be allowed to rejoin if you so desire. I know that things do come up in life and I just need to hear from you and I will wave based on reason. I am tired of the NO SHOWS. I sometimes have to give my credit card to guarantee a number. That goes for many fine restaurants. If you do not show up it reflects bad on me, our group and Meetup in general. Do not double book. A good way to remember your COMMITMENT is to put it on your personal calendar. In the app for Meetup you can click on the symbol next to the event and it will ask to add to calendar! I STRONGLY suggest that you use this feature.

My time as well as yours and all of my member is valuable, please be respectful of that.

Thank you so much for your cooperation!

Vinotecca wine sale


Greetings everyone, it’s been sometime since we were able to post an actual face-to-face event. This posting is not technically for a organized MeetUp event, however, our friends at Vinotecca are holding a sidewalk sale this Saturday. In support of their efforts to stay in business we decided to let everyone know about it, details are below. A number of us will also be shopping at the event at approximately the same time, so if you’d like to see, with politically correct social distancing, some of your friends then attend the event between 2 PM and 3 PM on Saturday. The sidewalk sale runs between 12:00 and 5:00. Even if you are not able to come at the time that we are shopping, please make an effort to come to the sale and support this long time venue in their hour of need. From John: While our opening has been delayed, we do have some fun wine-loving events planned for you. This weekend is our big wine sale so come on out to our patio and fill a box of wine at a great price! Next weekend, we are hosting a virtual wine tasting with Peter Stolpman. He is very entertaining and his wine is delicious! All the details are below. We hope to see you soon. The Jonna Family VINOTECCA and VINOLOGY WINE SALES!

This year will mark my 20th year cancer free!! I am also dedicating this years walk to my "Best Boob", Donna who was recently diagnosed. Shades of Pink Foundation is dedicated to providing temporary financial assistance to Southeast Michigan breast cancer patients who are experiencing financial distress due to their treatment and recovery. From housing to utility payments, Shades of Pink Foundation is one of the only assistance services available for working and middle class patients. Every dollar raised stays right here in our community to help women and families in need. I’m writing to ask that you get involved in this event and join my team, Bev's Boobs! Please consider being s sponsor for as little as $100, if you can't make it be a sleeping walker! Together we can raise so much while having a great time! Find out more on the event and sign up to join my team, Bev's Boobs. Thank you so much for your support!
