What we're about

Attention NW Philly socialites! There’s plenty to see and do here in Chestnut Hill, Mt. Airy, East Falls, Roxborough, Manayunk, West Oak Lane, Germantown and the 'burbs just outside the city. Instead of dealing with the crowds, the traffic, and the parking (tickets!) in Center City, stay local and socialize in your own 'hood. We’ll engage in indoor activities as well as outdoor ones - anything from a Sunday brunch to a walk in the Wissahickon. On weekends, we do venture into other parts of the city. We've got a good group of quality people who go out to make & meet friends. We can always use a few more!

A few fine points...

• Solo Headshot Photos Only - Crop your photo to a headshot (zoom in on your face). You need to be recognizable at events from the Meetup mobile app, where your face will be the size of an Advil. Photos without an easily recognizable face will be removed, along with the group member. Sorry! :(

• Real Names Only - A first name with a last initial, please.

• RSVPs - To minimize no-shows, our group uses a comment-to-attend system. Besides just clicking "Yes", you also need to post a comment on the event page that you're attending. If you're not attending, change your RSVP to avoid being counted as a no-show. Three no-shows will get you removed from the group.

True Tales From the Tombs

Laurel Hill Cemetery

On the night before Halloween, performers will regale you with true tales from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s historic tombs. Complete with scandal, mystery, and murder, True Tales from the Tombs will feature stories of the Cemetery’s most provocative and memorable permanent residents, as they return from the dead to tell their stories. Featuring The Not Ready for After-Life Players as storytellers of these tormented tales, the candlelit tours will wander through the stones and mausoleums of Laurel Hill.

Check in will be in the Courtyard of the Gatehouse located at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s main entrance (given on this page).

Leaving at 6:30 pm, guests will embark on a 45-minute walk through the cemetery, making several stops to hear the tales from the dead and when returning back to Gatehouse are welcome to hot and cold refreshments, cookies, and candy by fire pits. Please arrive at the beginning time on your ticket.
