What we're about

Is everyone around you having kids, left and right? Are you just not ready, don't have the "mom gene", or for other circumstances live a child-free life? This group is for you! Let's enjoy what San Diego has to offer. We don't have to worry about babysitters or the judgmental "you don't have/want kids???" Looks!
This group will be as good as its fabulous members, so please suggest outings and let's do this! If you have any ideas, please contact April and she'll be happy to make you an organizer. We have so many members, someone else will want to do what you're doing too!

This Meetup is currently free to join! To keep it open for everyone, please consider donating a few bucks via PayPal to SanDiegoLNB@gmail.com. All money collected goes into the care and feeding of this group.

***sorry moms, if you have teens/adult children, this group is not for you. ***

Late but great Socially Distant Secret Santa!

Location visible to members

What a year it’s been, and since today is the last day I’m staring a socially distant secret Santa gift exchange to start off the new year right! Here’s how it will go: sign up by the start date and I’ll message you an “about me” form to fill out. At the start date everyone will be messaged their giftees form, you’ll have 1 week to do shopping. The “end date” will actually be the start of a zoom meeting where we can all open our gifts together and find out who our Secret Santa is! Gifts can be dropped off or mailed to the giftees address so you must be comfortable giving your address on the form. Spend limit is $25. Feel free to message me with any questions. I hope you’ll join and we can have a fun time :)

Comic Book Club

Online event

Due to my complete inability to get my shit together, I am making a recurring event for book club and Comic Book Club. Locations and books will be announced in comments, or I'll change the posting to reflect what's going on. Also, until further notice, all events will be virtual. Once we can return to normal operations, I will continue our practice of meeting around the county. We have moved CBC to the last Tuesday of the month, though I reserve the right to move it back to Mondays in the future (Monday is often a great night for restaurants to accept large parties). NOTE FOR EVERYONE: I DO NOT GET NOTIFICATIONS OF MESSAGES ON EVENTS. IF YOU NEED TO CONTACT ME FOR ANY REASON, PLEASE SEND ME A DIRECT MESSAGE OR EMAIL! It's totally okay to not finish the book, so don't even worry about it. It's not okay to be a no-show, so be sure to cancel at least 24 hours before the event. CBC is co-ed and all ages, so feel free to bring anyone who may be interested in the subject matter. Our new way of recommending books is to add them to this goodreads shelf: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/142714.Comic_Book_Club_Recommendations, or vote for any of the ones already listed. I won't factor "score" into the rankings, just number of votes. So, if there's something you want to read for the 2021 CBC, add it there. To see books we've read, look at this Amazon list: https://www.amazon.com/ideas/amzn1.account.AH7BMWV5TF7LIYTIVOISDXXK3Z4A/XD4DYUA0MI0F?type=explore&ref=idea_cp_vl_ov_d (I'll make another Goodreads page here soon).

Zoom-y Hour

Online event

New Year, new event name! Join me for a bi-weekly happy hour-ish jam wherein we talk about our lives, the world, or whatever happens to come up. I've done a bit of restructuring to this event. I should be able to attend each event, but in the case that I'm not able to, this will be held as an open room for anyone to attend. We'll meet every other week for an hour, so low commitment. If you will be logging on late, please leave a comment below or contact me directly. **I DO NOT RECEIVE NOTIFICATION OF ANY COMMENTS ON EVENTS, SO IF IT'S URGENT, PLEASE MESSAGE ME THROUGH THE MESSAGING PORTION OF MEETUP (Upper right hand header on the webpage.)** Please keep your RSVP current! If you can no longer attend an event, remove yourself! If an event has no RSVPS by 4PM on the day of the event, I reserve the right to cancel the event unannounced. We haven't had any issues with people being disrespectful to others, but I want to remind folks to be courteous when engaging, especially with strangers. The meeting information will remain the same for all instances.
