What we're about

Welcome to the OC Good Life!

We are glad you found us! OC Good Life is one of the largest socially oriented Meetup groups in the entire country, so you have come to the right place! You only live once! Our group of fun, friendly people, whether single, married, attached, kids, pets, or not, will welcome you. We're lucky to live in Orange County where we can (and will) enjoy local social activities like:

Dining
Wine Tasting
Dancing
Volleyball
Hiking and Biking
Museums
Art Exhibits
Live Music
Cultural Festivals
Karaoke
Educational events
Happy Hours
Travel
House dinners and house parties
Game nights
Boating events
Sporting events
Trivia contests

and

Enjoying all that the Good Life in the OC has to offer!

After much discussion with people just like you, we were inspired to create this group for the same reasons that you are here. We are all looking to do fun things together, as a group of friends, and meet other people in the local area that enjoy going out and having fun. Trying that trendy new restaurant or going out on the dance floor somewhere new is much more enjoyable when you do it with fun people in a group.

* We always want everyone to feel welcome, and that means that we are committed to having everyone feel comfortable as well as safe. If it's your first time to one of our events, please don't be afraid that you won't know anyone. We will make sure you are welcome.

* Suggestions are always welcome, and we'd love to have as many different types of events that as you can think up.

* Together we will have new experiences, explore new places, try new things, and enjoy all that Orange County and surrounding areas (and even the entire world!) have to offer. Whatever your interests, you will find an event for yourself in this group.

We look forward to meeting you!

Rejoin life again with: Yes! You Can Act! The Socially distanced acting class!

Feel like rejoining life again? Do you feel a need to do something REALLY fun and uplifting for yourself? Well, come and join us for "Yes! You Can Act!" on Monday evening, July 13th from 6:30 - 9:00 PM in Lake Forest. Class runs for eight consecutive Mondays. NOTE: This is an outdoor, Socially Distanced class, on a comfy patio (with an awning and great outdoor patio heaters) where “Social Distancing" will always be kept foremost in our minds and the class size will purposely be kept small. The fun and creativity of this class is the perfect thing to help us all celebrate “rejoining life” and enjoying each other’s company once again. See: https://www.pamelapeakproductions.com/acting-level-1-poster-a This class is taught by Emmy-nominated Producer/Director Pamela Peak. It's a class for those who have ever wondered “Could I act? Could I actually get on a film set or stage and act?” Pamela’s answer is a resounding “Yes You Can!” And Pamela’s students find her classes to be an extremely positive and creative experience, taught in a fun, safe and creative environment. And the student camaraderie is always great! To learn more and to sign up for this class see: https://www.pamelapeakproductions.com/acting-truthfully-level-1 For over ten years, Pamela Peak has been successfully teaching Orange County's business people - doctors, lawyers, moms, dads and grandparents - how to become professional-quality actors. It is also a class for those who have acted before but feel they need a brush-up! Learn what Pamela's past students say about her class here: https://www.pamelapeakproductions.com/training-success Whether you are looking for a class to make you feel more outgoing or even just more comfortable speaking in front of a group at work - this class will produce those results. Learn more about Pamela Peak here: https://www.pamelapeakproductions.com/awards How does Pamela produce quality actors and more confident public speakers so consistently? She uses the "secret of the stars" - a fun, intuitive acting technique developed by the great Sanford Meisner. And Meisner's technique is utilized by over 65% of all the great actors we see on TV and screen today! EASY PAYMENT OPTIONS FOR DISCOUNTED CLASS FEE: Due to the economic slowdown so many have experienced, Pamela is giving a permanent 10% discount for all students. The class is now just $247.50. And if needed, you can use the “easy payment plan”, which lets you split the class into two equal payments of $123.75 (due June 29th and again on Aug. 3rd during this eight-week class). But don't wait too long as class size is being kept smaller due to social distancing. We hope you will join us for this uplifting class!
