What we're about

YOU! If you’re new to town, if you’re looking for awesome people to hang out with, if you’re bored, if you want new friends, if you just want to meet someone at a bar so you aren’t alone, or if you want someone to go watch that movie with you that you’re ashamed to tell all your real friends you want to watch — then join this group. This group is for anyone who wants to make connections.

We (the organizers) do pre-plan some things but this an INTERACTIVE group. Once you join, you are given the role of "event organizer" so you can add your own events at any time.

Something pops up that you want to do, even last minute, and you want someone to join you: come here and post it. Dinner on Thursday night and it’s already noon? Maybe someone else wants to come. Life is about connections and being in a new place, starting new friendships or building existing ones can be hard. We are trying to make it easier.

Plus, maybe someone will join you and you won’t have to spend the night alone playing Sims 3 and drinking. (But hey, if you want to do that, no judgement here.)

Seriously though: this group is for people who want to be around people, do something with your day, and hopefully meet some cool new friends along the way to hang out with.

**Note: If the organizers get feedback that any events are inappropriate or someone is made to feel uncomfortable, this status is revoked and you will be removed from the group. Don't be a creeper, and this isn't a dating site. No one has time for that.

Thinking & Drinking: The Invisibility Ring

Needs a location

The Invisibility Ring

If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?

Would you be good, or bad?

Is ANYONE virtuous enough not to break the rules?

Presented by Chisholm Creek Academy, I’m heading to their Thinking & Drinking Philosophy Round Table! Here’s the info:

We are a fun group of people who like to think, discuss, & debate challenging topics while having great cocktails. If you enjoy thinking outside the box and digging into the "why" of things, in a respectful, enjoyable manner, we'd love you to join us! We plan on choosing a different topic and/or book every month to discuss and debate in the form of a Socratic Discussion (which prompts people to question why they think what they think.) The concept is to learn from each other, grow as individuals, and open our minds to different viewpoints. Critical thinking and considering all options - especially over wine - is the best way to explore issues in these deeply divided times.

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Not Aristotle, apparently, but we like the quote anyway.

ALL ARE WELCOME. The whole concept is to discover new ideas, so you'll hear things that oppose your viewpoint. Sometimes, it's even on purpose (devil's advocate). So, if you do not like being questioned, this may not be the group for you. Also, please note, we have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy on hate speech.

Finally, if you've never tried this kind of thing, don't worry, just jump in! The water (and the wine!) is fine! We love meeting new people - come join us!
