What we're about

This is a group for anyone who wants to come out and have fun while meeting new open-minded and interesting people in the metro-Detroit area. Just some of the activities this group will be offering will be checking out new restaurants, bars, festivals, special events, going to the movies, and some outdoor activities. Open to your suggestions on fun nearby events. The idea is to make the group’s events exciting enough to get us out of the house while making new friends in the process.

Hump Day Happy Hour @ Mint29

mint 29

Wednesday is supposed to be sunny and warm....basically what you should actually expect for summer, right? So, let’s celebrate the mid week, and enjoy the sun and each other’s company over some appetizers and drinks. I’m going to try to make a reservation on their patio, so please rsvp so I have a headcount! Happy hour prices are until 6pm, come early to take advantage of yummy food and drinks! Lara 💕

Put-in-Bay Island @ Ohio

Jet Express

We will take a day trip to Put-in-Bay South Bass Island in Ohio. This is a fun little island to visit in Lake Erie with beautiful scenery. 🏝 We will drive to the Jet Express boat dock in Port Clinton (2.5-3hrs), take an approx 45min boat ride to get to the island. Tickets cost $34/adult round trip on the boat. 🚤 Once on the island, we’ll secure our golf carts (cost will be split among group approx $25/person/day for 4-seater cart), and tour the island, checking out the bustling downtown, and then heading towards inside the island. Some of the highlights are the relaxing Biergarten, beach park, cave, butterfly museum, wine tasting at local wineries, climbing up their towering historic monument, and sooooo much more.... 🌞 Please rsvp only if you will really join, and plan for a long day. We will carpool and share the cost of the drive (gas, parking, etc). This event involves a boat ride and water, it is completely at your own risk, and your participation means you understand and personally accept all risk involved with the activities. Looking forward to you joining! Lara ⚓️

What better way to show what a patriotic bunch we are than to celebrate the 4th of July holiday with a traditional BBQ! 🇺🇸 🥩🌽 EACH person MUST bring everything from Category A (what you must bring) AND a line item(s) from Category B (needed essentials). Category A: what you MUST bring - your own food to grill (meat, veggies, etc) - 1 dish to share with the group (appetizer or main dish or dessert) - your drink (NO ALCOHOL) - your fun attitude Category B: NEEDED essentials - bring 1 line item(s) - silverware AND plates - napkins AND cups - charcoal - Ketchup AND mustard - foil for leftovers AND salt AND pepper - water - disposable table cloth (2) AND hand sanitizers - garbage bags - did I forget anything? OPTIONAL items: - your grilling expertise 😜 - games - music - picnic chairs - any other type of entertainment??? Please confirm your attendance at least 1 week before event and list in the comment section what you will bring to share with the group, and which line items, so we know who is bringing what. I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, so I’ll update as I remember. If you have suggestions or recommendations, please let me know. Exact location at Hines Park will be posted closer to the meetup date. This is going to be a FUN event. Can’t wait! Looking forward to some juicy grillin’!! 🌭 Lara 👩🏻‍🍳

Ann Arbor Street Art Festival (& separate event for dinner)

This is a placeholder for the Ann Arbor Art Festival. We will walk around the festival for a couple of hours and check out the cool art vendors, and afterwards enjoy a relaxing dinner. Restaurant name to be announced later. Meetup point to be posted closer to the event date. Please keep your rsvp updated. It might make sense to carpool since parking can be a hassle in downtown AA.
