What we're about

This is a group for people in their 20s & early 30s looking to bond with cool new friends over quirky, fun activities. We're less about the happy hours and meeting over drinks (though they're bound to happen informally) and more about the strange, fun things you've always wanted to try doing (Quidditch, anyone?).

Activities can range from the casual (hikes, game nights, karaoke nights, etc.) to the more offbeat (puzzle hunts, obstacle courses, murder mysteries, etc.). If this sounds right up your alley, come join us for some random fun!

FAQ (If you have other questions, contact the organizers)

• How often are there events?

There are events whenever an organizer has an event to host. So it varies and depends on our organizers' schedules. Most of our events are "offbeat" in nature, so they also tend to take more planning (and therefore might not occur that often). Generally, we try to have on average at least one event each week. Most events fall on the weekends and sometimes on weeknights.

You can see a list of all of our upcoming events on our calendar:

http://www.meetup.com/Offbeat-Fun/events/

We update the list rather sporadically, so we encourage members to check our calendar weekly for fun things to do! We also try to announce events 1-2 weeks in advance, so also look out for email notifications about those.

If you'd like to see more events, consider hosting some!

• How much do events cost?

We strive to create an environment where fun is as free and accessible as possible, so most events tend to be free!

However, some events do cost money to organize such as for food and drink, supplies, booking venues, etc. For these events, we will ask all attendees to pay in advance to confirm their spot and help us plan. We will always try our best to keep costs reasonable.

Offbeat Movie Night + Potluck

Location visible to members

Looking to expand your movie repertoire? Join us for an "offbeat" movie night! Every 3rd Friday (unless changed), we'll gather and watch a movie that's a little bit "offbeat"--meaning movies that are either not mainstream or just plain weird. If you have ideas for movies to watch, please submit them in the comments! ===== The movie will start at 8pm. Come earlier to hang out and join us for a potluck dinner at 7pm. Please bring some food/drinks to share if you'll be joining for dinner. Write in the comments the type of food/drinks you'll be bringing so we don't all bring the same things (e.g., entree, appetizer, dessert, wine, beer)! Note: Please keep your RSVP updated! Remove yourself (including from the waitlist) if you will no longer attend. We will assign a strike if you remove your RSVP at the last minute (< 48 hours notice) or if you flake (no-show). If there's a waitlist, we'll assign 2 strikes for any flakes. Don't be flaky! RSVPs will open up 2 weeks before the event date.
