Join us for an adult beverage with fun spirited people! Enjoy the opportunity to get out and discover new and traditional places in our community. Maybe we'll have a bite to eat, listen to a band, go dancing, have dinner and a movie, watch a sporting event, or take in a show. We thrive on getting together to network socially and make new friends. Looking for like minded people and want to join in on the fun? How about a Happy Hour....and more!?
The Happy Hour group's primary focus is to provide a relaxed, 'non-pickup-scene' social environment for people to enjoy without paying membership fees. If you just moved to Grand Rapids, or if you have lived here for a while, this group can be a great way to meet new people in the area. Join us for happy hours, camping, hiking, clubbing, art gallery tours, barbecues, ski trips and many other social events around the Grand Rapids area. Please plan on posting a picture of your face when you join our group in order for our event organizers to recognize you at our next event!
We are open to any suggestions and ideas for new activities. Let us know what you would like to do, or host an event yourself! We are looking forward to a toast with you soon!
***please note that harassment of any kind toward any member will not be tolerated and the offender will be removed from our group.
