What we're about

In spite of all the technological advances that clutter our lives, there is no question that people are lonelier now than any time in recent history. Whether you are married, divorced, single, surrounded my people, hard at work, or searching for meaningful friendships, the feeling of loneliness can easily creep up on you. At the root of so many addictions, unfulfilling relationships, anxiety and health concerns is loneliness. So why not just admit it, and begin making new friends. This meetup is for people that are ready and willing to do just that.

Start your journey to fulfillment here - A safe place, where people who desire to bridge the gap between who they are and who they want to be can gain perspective, encouragement, and insights, all while having fun along the way.

Mango Bay - Amazing Jamaican Food!

1236 Rue Mackay

If you want to get an idea of what authentic Jamaican food taste like, then you have to join us. This is event is scheduled on Valentine's Day so reservations will be made. Please indicate if you will be bringing a guest as seating is limited. Since, this restaurant does a lot deliveries and takeout orders, I am hopeful that we will have most the place to ourselves. The menu is affordable but it does add up, expect the evening to cost around $15-$25. Menu: https://portal.restomontreal.ca/mango-bay/menu/menu.pdf

Sugar shack - Chalet des Érables

384 Montée Gagnon

This place is amazing, the food is really delicious and they have a lot of fun activities (See below) for kids and adults. This event is only possible from about late February to Mid-April, so there is huge demand of people attending sugar shacks and limited access. Consequently, reservations must be made, and there are strict dining time guidelines, in that we can only eat within our time allotment. To make this event work, I will be suspending the option to RSVP closer to the event date as we will not be able to accommodate new attendees once the reservation is made. Car pooling will be available and cost of fuel will be shared. The drive is about 1 hour in each direction. Departure time from Montreal will be at 12PM and dinner reservations will be at 1:30PM. Please let me know if you have any feedback. Cost: $ 15-$20 (approximately as 2019 prices have not been published as yet. Tickets for rides are around $2 each). Menu: http://chaletdeserables.com/en/cabane-a-sucre/meal/ Activities: Kettle tour, general store, farmhouse, antique car ride, carriage ride, rail ride, mechanical bull, miniature four wheel ride, pony, inflatable games, bumper cars, haunted house, pirate ship ride, carousel and many others!
