What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in random activities that are not frequently offered in other types of meetups. Some sample activities include getting bubble tea, photography, snowboarding, Pokemon Go, nature walks, biking, reading a book series, visiting art galleries, going to comedy clubs, etc. I'll organize events around a broad range of topics and narrow things down based on attendees interests. My goal is not to replace any other existing group but to fill time slots that don't receive as much attention on Meetup.

Escape in Time, Escape Room Experience Meetup #2

Escape In Time - Escape Rooms

$18.00

PLEASE READ EVERYTHING - PREPAYMENT REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT! 8/5/19 Update: I've booked the room for Alien Autopsy at 7:30pm on August 23rd. We had a great time last time, so I'm hosting another event at Escape in Time on the west side of Madison. https://www.escapeintimemadison.com/ I picked up a Groupon again and have a couple replay tickets, so all who are coming can enjoy at a discounted rate. I'm reserving for 6 and we'll split the cost, so that would be about $18/person including tax, instead of the normal $32/person with tax. Groupon deal only includes Alien Autopsy, Captain's Cove, Eat or Be Eaten, and Water Landing. We did Captain's Cover last time so the choices this time will be: Alien Autopsy has times at 7:30pm or 9:30pm. Eat or Be Eaten has times at 7:30pm or 9:30pm. Water Landing 6pm, 8pm, or 10pm I'm thinking probably a 7:30pm or 8pm would be best. They recommend arriving about 15 minutes early to sign waivers and receive orientation. Please comment which room and time you'd like to do. I'm thinking Alien Autopsy at 7:30pm If people are interested, we can go to Schwoegler's before the event to have a get-to-know-each-other, and maybe some food or a couple drinks again. ALL RVSP'S WILL BE REQUIRED TO EITHER SEND ME PAYPAL OR PAY ME IN PERSON BEFORE THE EVENT (unless you have a replay ticket). I will send a private message to arrange payment after you RSVP. Last time I hosted I had attendees pay me day of the event, but I had a couple people drop out last minute, and I had to scramble to find replacements. So that's why I'm requiring payment upfront this time. If you don't respond to set up payment and/or don't send payment, you will be removed off the RSVP list.

The Original Pancake House Brunch Meetup

Original Pancake House

I enjoyed this past week's brunch and want to continue hosting more brunches. For this brunch, I'm planning on hosting at the Pancake House. Here's a link with the menu and prices: http://www.ophmadison.com/menu/ The reviews are excellent for this place averaging 4.7 stars out of 5 from hundreds of reviews. They not only do pancakes, but also omelettes, crepes, and other egg dishes. Their prices seem to also be less than other brunches I've hosted too. I'm planning on calling them to put in a reservation for 6 at 11 am this Sunday but may expand the RSVP list depending on interest and how many they can handle.

Pick-up Soccer

Olbrich Park

Weekly pick-up soccer at Olbrich Park (west end). All ages and skill levels welcome. Bring both a white and a dark shirt. Option for a drink/snack at the Biergarten afterwards for anyone interested.
