Christmas Eve Meetup Mingle Potluck & Game Night
Join your Meetup friends on Christmas Eve for socializing, games, and eating... three of our favorite things! This is a great way to meet new people and hang out with old friends in a comfortable and enjoyable environment. This is a multi-group event and is open to adults of all ages. We have room for 100+ people so please invite your friends! We have many games on hand, but please bring your favorite card, board, or Euro games too. Everyone needs to bring a potluck item to share. It's not OK to arrive empty handed. If you don't cook, you can bring takeout, deli, or grocery. If you want to drink something other than water, then bring a beverage to share. Beer & wine are OK; please use responsibly. Ice will be provided. Be aware that some may have food restrictions, so please label your items accordingly. We'll have full use of the large kitchen area so refrigerators, stoves, ovens, and microwave are available. We should have everything you need for preparing and serving. We'll be going green and using real dishes. Every guest needs to help out for at least 5-10 minutes so the organizers aren't stuck working the entire event. We greatly appreciate those who can arrive early or stay late to help with setup and cleanup too. • 6:30 PM to midnight. Set-up starts at 6:00 PM, all helping hands are welcome! • $5 per person. We use the honor system so please be an honorable person and pay your fair share of the expenses for space rental and supplies. You can pay at the door with cash or check (make checks out to LHSC). • RSVPs via this Meetup event are greatly appreciated but not required. "Maybe" RSVPs are fine; we understand that life is unpredictable so it’s OK if you change your RSVP later. • The parking lot is very small so on-street parking and a short walk will be required for most. Please be respectful of our residential neighbors and keep the noise levels low when coming & going. >>> Please do not repost this event to other Meetup groups without the permission of the event host. <<<

What we're about

Have you lived in more than one country, traveled to many countries, worked in a multicultural setting, or have many friends from different backgrounds? Then this group is for you!

We're not your typical "armchair travelers"... we've truly "been there, done that!" While we enjoy living here, we don't believe that Minneapolis / St. Paul (MSP), USA is the center of the known universe.

While there are many great local groups for expats and specific languages or cultures, we want to bring everyone together for a truly global experience!

We encourage all group members with a great idea to lead an event or series of events. Please see our Member and Event Host guidelines ( for additional details.

The MSPMC group organizers pay for all Meetup fees and event supplies out of their own pockets. Anything you're willing to contribute would be much appreciated! Cash donations are preferred to avoid the WePay ( transaction fees.
