We exist to help you meet new people and make friends in a purely social setting. We're not a professional networking organization and we're not a singles group. (But if people meet at a BtB event and end up dating or finding a job opportunity, all the better.) So it's okay to invite someone you meet at a BtB event to do something - no one's going to think you're asking them out on a date!
Break the Bubble was created to solve a big problem: How do you make new friends in the Twin Cities? Whether you just moved here or have lived here your whole life, it can be challenging to make friends. Some call it "Minnesota Nice" while others say "Minnesotans will give you directions anywhere, except to their lake cabin." No matter how you say it, making friends here is hard. We're changing that.
Oh yeah! Let's cross the river to Minneapolis for our February BtB! It's our first time at Eastlake; they have great beers, fun space, and lots of food options inside the building to choose from. Let's do this!
So wait, this is a singles event, right? Or a professional networking thing?
Nope. Break the Bubble is for making friends, pure and simple. You can leave the pick-up lines and elevator speeches at home. Refreshing, isn't it?
What's the format?
1. Show up
2. Put on a name tag
3. Introduce yourself to someone new
I heard these events have themes. What’s up with that?
Yep. Our events have themes because most of us need a little help kickstarting conversations with people we don't know. Question to be announced closer to the event... we want to keep you guessing!
