What we're about

Our sister groups https://tr.im/MoreToExplore & https://tr.im/IWantToDoThat

Plain and simple: This is a group for anyone new to Los Angeles or anyone who wants to meet new and interesting friends. It is all inclusive, casual, supportive, positive, and most of all fun. Do you miss having a close circle of friends? Get out of your comfort zone and join.

This group is unique in that EVERYONE is a "Meetup Organizer", this means that ANYONE can post a meetup without asking an administrator or meetup organizer first. You don't need approval, you just post your meetup. Make sure you follow the rules for posting meetups that are listed at the very bottom of this page.

Be respectful of other members. Be mindful of RSVP's and cancel if your plans change.This is a great way to meet a diverse group of people and get to know more about this amazing city!

====RULES FOR MEMBERS=====

You are allowed to join with whatever name and whatever photo. HOWEVER the main organizers may request you change either name or photo a their discretion. Names that are products, promotional, advertisements are red flags that will be requested to change or be removed. If you are using a photo that is not your face, a current face photo may be requested. Here is the rule of thumb. Fake name and fake photo will be requested to change to a real photo and a real name or face removal. Real photo and fake name is usually fine. Fake photo and real name is usually fine.

IF you need to maintain privacy of both then contact the main organizers and just ask. That's all it takes usually.

Do NOT message or contact people you have NOT met in real life. Meaning: This is NOT tinder of craigslist. Meet people at events. Do not just send unsolicited messages to members you have not met at events unless there is a context (like a carpool request for example). If you are reported you may be removed from the group.

The "do not contact people you have not met in real life rule applies here and on several like minded groups.

DO NOT USE THE DISCUSSION BOX to post an event or even to "ask" about an event. Just DON'T USE THE DISCUSSION BOX AT ALL FOR ANY REASON. Plain and simple it generates spam. If you this was a regular group the box can be turned off. Since all members are Event Org by default it is not able to be turned off. Just don't use it. Post an event using the "post an event" feature. Pick an activity, date, time, location and post it. You do not need to ask 5000 people first, . . . if you have a question you message to The Admin.

====RULES FOR POSTING MEETUPS=====

Before posting your meetup, come back here and check the rules for posting a meetup BEFORE you post to make sure your meetup is acceptable. Meetups not following these rules will be deleted.

You can post anything you like as long as it's not

- Something offensive (you have some leeway here, just don't piss people off).

- Something illegal

- Something that you're posting to make money.

- Something that's similar to a craigslist post.

- Something that is overtly or covertly promotional without express permission in advance of The Admin of the group

- Something that is trying to promote an App or Website or Social Media. Hooch or other scams are not allowed.

- Posts of events of other groups is OK WITH permission of The Admin. No links to other groups. The event must be able to stand own it's own. Do NOT divert or direct members to other groups.

====RULES ORGANIZERS NEED TO FOLLOW FOR POSTING MEETUPS=====

NO OUTSIDE LINKS ALLOWED UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY : Outside links are links to websites, or social media or anything. You are only allowed to use outside links if they are ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to your meetup, AND you get prior approval from Admin. If you do not have approval: the links or event will be removed.

DO NOT E-MAIL MESSAGE THE GROUP UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES: You may not email members or message the group via meetup using the bulk email feature for any reason, if you think or feel you need to do so, message The Admin to do it for you. You MAY message those that already RSVPd to your event though to let them know about any changes. Do this directly and NOT with the bulk email feature. Violation of this will result in immediate removal, and then you can explain after and get back in the group.

If you use the "discussion box" feature on other groups, or if you in past have used bulk email to spam groups you will be removed. There is zero tolerance for spam from Event Organizers or Members of this group. Your actions elsewhere will impact here. This group will not be associated with allowing indicrimate spam.

YOU MUST ATTEND YOUR OWN MEETUP: You must host the meetup in-person and be present at your own meetup. You must least a clear way and where for people to meetup at the event. If there is a no host event you will be asked to add a host or the event will be removed. Meetup.com rules state there are no "No Host" events allowed.

THE MORE NOTICE THE BETTER: Meetups MUST be posed at least 1 day in advance, but the more the better. Please don't post any same-day or last-minute meetups, it's not enough time for people to make plans to attend. Four weeks advance will get you the most RSVP's

MEETUPS MUST BE MEETUP ORIENTED: Meetups must be oriented where people can get to know each other, meetups like "Free yoga lessons!" are not allowed. No classes or seminars. No other craigslist style meetups allowed. If you do not list a way for people to meet or meetup your event may be removed.

DO NOT EDIT OR DELETE ANYONE ELSE'S MEETUP: Admin will ban anyone that edits or deletes someone else's meetup without their permission.

Frequency: It is ideal to NOT repeat an event is less than 6 weeks. There are exceptions. Just ask The Admin if you wish to post carbon copy events in less time. This rule is aimed and event promoters or bands. Repeating a band at a different location is a repeat. If you think The Admin will see your event as a copy that you are promoting, then contact first and ask for permission

Money: If your event has a charge of more than $10 You MUST message the main admin BEFORE you post.

MEETUPS THAT VIOLATE THE ABOVE RULES WILL BE EDITED or DELETED. The person who posted it may receive a warning afterwards or they may be removed and placed on hold pending sorting out of any issues. IF your event is Edited or Deleted contact The Admin. Do NOT re-insert removed content.

Yes. Right now you are saying: Wow. There are sooooooo many!

Truly all guidelines have to do with respect for the membership and to minimize exploitation of the members and the group.

You are also saying: Wow. These are harsh!!

This group has an open and inviting door. These rules are given to all upon entering. If you violate these it's a little like walking into a house and then laying s steaming turd for all the other guests to look at, and smell and even watch you do it.

The Admin will pick up any turds and remove the bare ass laying it. Yes, it may feel harsh to you but it is protecting the other guests and members. With 7,000 members time is of the essence in dealing with problems so swift action will be taken to minimize ripples.

We are all adults here. So if you did not read this and administrative action gets applied to you, . . . that's on you. Ya can't blame others for your own actions and consequences. After all is said and done: There are plenty of other groups on meetup.

Now that the boring ADMIN info is posted above . . . here is more about the group

The mission of this group is its name.

"I Just Moved To LA" aims to be positive and safe environment for members to experience things that, for whatever reasons, you longed for but weren't able to do before. Everyone is welcome.

Los Angeles is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.

The Name is the mission. You are 50+ (50 50s 50's (fifty / fifties ) and want to get out and be social, and at the moment you are flying solo.

You can also be 60 60s 60's ( sixty / sixties )or 40 40s 40's forty or forties )

This group aims to be a welcoming place for all. So come and join in on the fun side.

What does "Flying Solo" mean? It means that for whatever reason you are on your own at the moment.

That can mean any version of "single."(as in never married, divorced, or separated, widowed). It can also mean you are dating or in a committed relationship or even married, but you do not have your other to go out with, or they do not like certain activities. And if you want to bring a partner, . . . that's ok too. This is a big tent and all are welcome. There is more than enough space for all to enjoy being out and social. All are welcome of any age (over 40), gender, gender preference, any relationship status, religion, national origin, shoe size, belly button lint, rs40 etc . . .

>

What this does mean is this is a social group not a singles group. If your main goal is to pick up, hook up, or otherwise hit on people, there are other groups for you. This in intended as a place to make and meet new friends, as well as to spend time and company with existing friends too. In other words this is a an open, welcoming friendly, inclusive and supportive community. If you are on the right side / rightside of life then you are just right for us.

As it turns out imitation is a sincere form of flattery. So if you are interested intimation or flattery: there is that. If you like meetups that focus on heavy drinking Happy Hours, or just events in general that the main stated focus is cheap drinks early in the day on usually a weekday, . . . please seek out that group. If you wish good decent social with even better quality people . . . . just come to our next event.

40's-60's are our most active and productive years! And yet...it's not so much fun being single! Especially when it comes to travel...

There are so many places we want to visit, so many cultures we would like to explore and different cuisines to taste! And what better way to do it, but with friends, close to our age and equally curious and adventurous!

This is a group for middle-aged single travel enthusiasts, who are young at heart and want to enjoy the best years of their lives with like-minded individuals. We plan some long-distance trips but we also do a lot of local activities, where we can meet face-to-face: dining out, scavenger hunts, wine tasting and local one-day trips.

Having these fun local activities, gives us the opportunity to meet new people, make friends and create new relationships, with a little help of a common interest - travel. Let's explore the word, near and far, together!

All the best in one place!

Think of this as Summer Camp for Adults.

In our digital world the more online, plugged in and connected we become the more disconnected we become from others. This group, with intention uses social medial to be Social in Real Life.

The mission of this group is its name.

Los Angeles is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.

There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met. (William Butler Yeats )

EVERYONE IS WELCOME INTO THE GROUP!

This is a place where everyone can just come as they are, and mingle with people who are like them AND who are NOT like them. We are not limited, restricted or exclusive by age, gender, gender preference, national origin, relationship status, etc. To put it more simply this group is open to all. All ages, all genders, all sexual orientations, all types - And that includes you!!!

There are plenty of meetups that exclude based of one reason or another. Or there plenty meetups where people self segregate. This meetup is neither of those. Diversity is coveted here. People are not monochrome and neither are we. You will fit in perfectly and find a lot of folks who just like you in certain aspect, and differ from you in others. It's the good kind of variety of life.

Some events on this group may specify limits at times. Those will be clearly noted when needed. At times they may be age delineated, or even gender related. Limits are placed often as a means to control size. The event can then be repeated/recycled with a different limit range. If there is an event you really wish to go to with a limit, . . . please contact me. You can be the impetus and the catalyst for the next event in the different limit/range. Other times the limit can be waived or bent as needed.

Challenge yourself and importantly, BE yourself and expand your horizons and comfort zone. Let your hair down! Go wild! Be open minded and be non-judgmental. The group is based off quality events to bring people together from positive social interaction. Anyone who wants to explore an alternative, bohemian, experimental, strange, obscure, weird, wild, absurd, bizarre, avant garde, unconventional, wild-at-heart side of Los Angeles is welcome!

In the interest of making events successful . . . I will spread events across other meetup groups to bump up attendance. For as you know, . . . sometimes people don't show up. Some Organizers get really bent out of shape about that. I do however know that life happens. Even if it's 10 mins before the event. Just change your rsvp. No worries. No harm-no foul. There is not any sort strikes or penalty system, and there is nobody keeping score. The exception will be if it is listed as a "no flake" event. On those you gotta give good notice of changes. It's about fun and community. What I have found is that by being mellow and and having good events more show up. We tend to have 80% or more attendance. I approach with compassion. So if you don't make one event or another. . . try and make it to the next, or the one after that. When you do make it, .. . . we will be glad you are there and all are welcome.

Here are the basics of group rules.

Do NOT contact members who you have not met in real life.

Avoid Put Downs.

Speak For Yourself.

Listen To Others.

You Have The Option To Pass.

Expect Unfinished Business.

While there are flexible attendance rules. There are sex/gender related rules. As a guideline do not message people you have not met in person. This is not an online dating place. Ladies: If a guy messages you please contact me. There have been problems with that happening over meetup in general. It's just not cool. Meetup is about real life and not virtual. Guys, . . . get off your computer and come to an event. Say hello in person. Smile, . . . be personable and decent. And just be there to get to know people and make friends of whatever gender. You can always use new good friends. And this is one way to make/meet them. Wingman tactics and and Pickup artist tactics are similarly not allowed in this group. Organizers of another group that are not an organizer or host here are also not allowed to solicit members.

Photo and Name: You are allowed to join with whatever name and whatever photo. HOWEVER the main organizers may request you change either name or photo a their discretion. Names that are products, promotional, advertisements are red flags that will be requested to change or be removed. If you are using a photo that is not your face, a current face photo may be requested. Here is the rule of thumb. Fake name and fake photo will be requested to change to a real photo and a real name or face removal. Real photo and fake name is usually fine. Fake photo and real name is usually fine.

IF you need to maintain privacy of both then contact the main organizers and just ask. That's all it takes usually.

All organizers on the group do have different set of rules.

The rules simplified.

• No Emailing (do not use the bulk email feature in any way)

• No outside links

• Great Copy

• Great Pix

• 4 weeks notice is best.

• List any money costs in the first 2 or 3 lines.

Not too many rules. Not too complicated. They all have to do with respect for the membership.

Let's talk a little more about age: Are you in your 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s ? (btw some write 20's 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's 90's ). I am often asked "What age range is this group?" 20 40 maybe? 30 50 perhaps? Or even 60 70. Forties ( forty's forty ), Fifties ( fifty's fifty ) of sixties ( sixty's sixty ) or older does matter. 24-39 3000 20+ 30+ 50+ 60+ & under or over. We are just aiming at good community.

Yeah, . . . All that is great, . . . But I still have one question, . . . What age is your group?

Age is a state of mind. And our state (this group) has no borders.

If so then you may be looking for us!

We do NOT discriminate by age, sex or gender, gender preference, origin, religion, belly button lint, etc . . . .

Do you enjoy friendship, activities, key networking, casual socializing, parties learning, sharing, inspiration? You do!?!?! How about personal and professional development with active nerd adult ( adults ) who like adventure ( adventurers, adventures, adventurous ) stuff that may involve silly dance game ( games ) and cool nerds with addicting, amazing fun? Great!!!! There will be sweet things to discover while engaging in retro revival underground unique geeky exploration of fringe play plus speed punk quirky sophisticated spectacular geek socials with high society making savvy friends. It will be an offbeat odyssey of an outing to nerdy paradise and we will party at random places (see locations below). Come and share fine no flake ( flakes ) fun that is free or inexpensive and goes late into the lovely night. Left, right or center, we will live life together and enjoy.

We do some sports related events. Are you interested in teammates players for your sport or hobby? Such as bowling, trivia, camping, biking, hike, hikes, hiking, snowboarder, snowboarding, ski, skiing, kayaking? Or even related to bmi, exercise, fitness, healthy, lock pong, recreation, recreational, outdoor, york Halloween, mammoth mountain, St Patrick's, Ensenada, un scrabble solitaire poker or more!!! We run the range.

A bigger majority of what we are cultural ( culture ), language, travel, music, arts, festival, performance, crave, dining, exotic, restaurant, food, foodie, architecture, art, artistic, urban, or ballet. But it does not stop there. We also do comedy, concert ( concerts ), cook, cooking, theater, theatre, culinary, cultural, tours, sub-culture, subculture sponge ( sponges ), performances, dances, dancing, museums, musical ( musicals ), bars, foodies, dinner, dinning, bbq, beach, restaurants, trips, cruise ( cruises ), cuisine. And even with all that we still to even more!!! Including, flea n farmer (farmers) market ( markets ), boutique, burlesque, crafting, craft, create, creating, sushi, pho, pizza, tastings, tickets, kim chi, tai kimchi, deserts, eating, festivals, film, films, galleries, games, karaoke, movies, sutra kama karma.And now the important question. Did we miss one? Oh. . . OK then, . . Send that so we can add it to the list.

Aside from the High Brow we do engage in the Low Brow such as wine, beer, drink, bar hopping, dive bars ( dives ), rave ( raver ravers raves raving ), hip-hop hiphop, hole holes-in-walls, crawl crawls, trance techno, dubstep, night nightclub, nightlife, nights. As well as classic club clubbing, clubs eclectic, edm electro electronica, pubs, pub speak, speakeasy, drinks, meet meeting mix mixer mixers mixing, greet, happy hour hours haunts, Did somebody say volunteer mingle? Let's DoLA or make a Timeout and TimeoutLA. LAist anyone?

So the High Brow and the Low Brow get together and make up THE KNOW BROW and that is all about people and who makes us up.

By ethnicity we very much match the instagram ethnic makeup of Los Angeles with Caucasian and Non Hispanic Whites, Latino, Black or African American, Native American,Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander and others such as Middle Eastern such as Arab or Israeli, and many more from across the global atlas.

Different than ethnicity is Nationality, or National Origin. And again . . . from that we run the range European, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Pacific Islander, Indian, Taiwanese (Taiwan), Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese ( China, Cantonese, Mandarin ), Hong Kong Mexican ( Mexico ), and more and more. Even USC or UCLA
And that makes for sooooooooo many languages. We like language and the culture it is able to unlock It brings English, Spanish second ESL and ELL and ASL are big here. Hebrew, Yiddish, German, French, And the gamut of others to translate ( translation translator ) with class (classes).

Tolerance is a main tenet here as we are Christian ( Catholic, Mormon, etc), Jewish (Jew Jews), Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, tech Scientology and more. And even Republican, Conservative, Liberal, Democrat, Libertarian, Bernie / BernieCrat, or even Trump or Trumpian or Scientologist. This is a big tent and since it's decent social we will all be decent.

What it comes down to is we are making new friends ( friend freind freinds ) and to be friendly. Almost like finding your entourage Made up of Men (man men's mens) and women ( woman women's ) and non-binary too. Members may be young or old, married, single ( divorce divorced separated and never married ) or coupled (couple as part of a committed relationship / relationships ). Many are likely singles and looking to date in one way or another. Going on dates or dating is fine. But it does NOT happen via using the group like Tinder, Match.com, POF or eharmony.

This group is about real life. So online messaging of people you have not met in real life is not allowed. Why such a rule?

Because it is heterosexist of you to assume that all people are interested in you. Like is says above there are married or those in committed relationships. There is is also the range of sexual preference in the group. Gay, lesbian girls lgbt lgbtq queer bi poly swing swinger swinging and any sort of variation such as transsexual and transgender. We do accept all. Even rs40 and rso40. We do NOT accept SpeedDating or Speedating or whatever you call it. It's forbidden.

Whoever you find cute, hot, sexy or find attraction to that comes in person. Plenty a match and romance or spark may happen. You may find your love (or lover). But you also may just make great friends girlfriend ( girlfriends ). It's just down to good decent social. Conscious communication and engagement that makes for self-improvement and improvement of others. Conversation and network or networking of professionals. That's just smart l33t leet api entrepreneur groupting that will lead to inspirational international consciousness.

We just added Game of Thrones GOT and The Walking Dead viewing parties.

Where do you do events? We do them ALL OVER!!!! I have taken the time to look at past events and the cities they have happened in and near and put it together with the upcoming location too. Our groups IS different, . . . we DO range all over the city. Here are where we HAVE BEEN, and where we are GOING!! All of it is obscure or obscura.

So I have gone in great detail to cover who we are and what we do. This is accurate and verifiable by going to our past events and looking that what we have done. This is all fact based on the breadth, scope and mission of this group.

If you have made it this far. Then watch this and then, . . .get off social media and on meetup. The social part of social media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEWnXmDfVZg

This group is also very Reddit and Redditor affiliated.

Escape Zoom! (Online Escape Room & Murder Mystery Event)

Online event

$20.00

We have multiple themes and event dates/times so make sure to pick the one you're interested in (if one date/time is sold out, just look for another) *FOR TICKETS - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/escape-zoom-online-escape-room--murder-mystery-event/dates/ (*ticket site times are EST) THURSDAY @ 6:30pm EST - THEME: BACK TO THE 80s & 90s THURSDAY @ 8:30pm EST - THEME: TIME BOMB SUNDAY @ 5:30pm EST - THEME: TV SHOW ESCAPE SUNDAY @ 7:30pm EST - THEME: TIME BOMB WHAT TO EXPECT: Come experience the revolutionary online event that's taking the city by storm! Escape Zoom is a revolutionary online experience that combines the best aspects of escape rooms, murder mysteries and trivia nights into one awesome event! Use your wits, detective skills and trivia knowledge to find clues and solve puzzles. It has been called, "The most fun you'll ever have from home!". Get ready to be transported to an exciting world of puzzles and mysteries to solve. A question we get a lot is, "If I've been to an Escape Zoom event in the past, can I do it again? Will it be the same event?". The answer to that is... Each event has a theme (ie. Time Bomb, Murder At The Ball, Back To The 80s & 90s, etc.). As long as it's a different theme/name than you've done in the past, you're all good and the event will have completely different puzzles/questions. *QUICK NOTE: THIS IS A MULTI MEETUP GROUP EVENT. 10 OTHER MEETUP GROUPS HAVE ALSO BEEN INVITED SO WE'RE EXPECTING A GREAT TURNOUT. THE EVENT PRICE WILL BE GOING UP AS SPOTS FILL UP AND WE GET CLOSER TO EVENT TIME. IF ONE TIME SLOT OR THEME IS SOLD OUT YOU CAN SELECT ANOTHER. HOW IT WORKS: After you register for a ticket you'll be given a link that to a Zoom event. At the time of the event, you'll go to that link and the excitement begins! Our live, friendly host/game master will welcome you and make quick introductions among the group. You'll be in a Zoom room with between 10 and 20 other people and will be segmented into smaller teams. The team to solve the most puzzles/questions wins a prize! If you have friends who sign up as well you can ask to be put on the same team (Typically about 70% of people sign up on their own and 30% sign up with friends so you'll have fun whether you sign up alone or with friends). The event is so much fun and usually sparks new friendships! SPACE IS LIMITED AND SPOTS FILL UP FAST SO WE RECOMMEND SIGNING UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: "Wow! That was crazy intense. My heart was racing a mile a minute." - Alex M. "This should be on everyone's bucket list. I can't even explain how much fun I had." - Jasmine R. "Awesomely fun! Every time you solve something you get a huge adrenaline rush." - Douglas H. *REGISTER AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/escape-zoom-online-escape-room--murder-mystery-event/dates/ (once you purchase, you'll receive an e-ticket receipt confirming your registration.
