What we're about

From Pulp Fiction: Be cool.

We have just one objective: Meet new people.

This group is for Orange County professionals in their 20s, 30s and 40s. We meet for happy hour on a regular basis, usually on Wednesday or Thursday evenings, at cool places in Irvine, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, and surrounding areas. The goal is to get together after work, have a cocktail, and meet new people. We already have a core group that come regularly, but we also have new people each time.

This group will only succeed if we have good attendance with fun people. Attendees may get wristbands, making it easy to identify others in the group, if we're in a crowded place. As the organizer, I will try to ensure that all attendees meet everyone else in attendance, so come join us and invite your friends!

Our events normally start at 5:00 PM and go until about 8:00. You don't need to arrive by 5:00. That's just when it starts. Come whenever you're available. We'll be there until at least 7:30 PM. Members often have dinner together, but that part is not organized in an official way. Please come with a friendly and inclusive mindset.

Be good to each other! #OCHappyHour

Hive & Honey Rooftop Bar

From Pulp Fiction: Be cool. Are you an OC working professional in your 20s, 30s, or 40s? Come join us for another #OCHappyHour at Hive & Honey (Marriott Hotel) near the Irvine Spectrum. This group was formed on July 18th, 2018. Group membership as of 02/07 was 1,606 people! This is our 1st FRIDAY event! As a group, we have just one objective: Meet new people! So come join us and bring a friend. This group is thriving because we have great people and great energy. So invite someone along. I'll do my best to introduce you (and them) to everyone. Curious how many people will attend? We usually get 2/3 of the RSVP count actually showing up, so 60 RSVPs normally results in about 40 people in attendance. Also, just to be clear, you don't have to be there by 5:00 PM. That's just when it starts. That's when I will be there, but feel free to come whenever you're available. Come at 5:30. Come at 6:00. Come at 6:30. We'll be there until at least 7:30 or 8:00. Is it your birthday? If your birthday falls within a few days, either before or after this event, please post it in the comments below. We love any excuse to order something sweet, sing you a song, and help you celebrate in style! Bring cash! These events are getting bigger and bigger, and the servers sometimes have a difficult time tracking individual bills, especially when people are moving around, talking to each other throughout the night. It's often easier to pay cash along the way. This is not mandatory, just recommended. Social Media: Please take photos at our events and post them to Instagram and Facebook! Tag them with #OCHappyHour and we'll add the best ones to our Meetup Group as well. We've had some awesome events, and it would be great to have a bunch of photos that we can all share with each other.
