What we're about
Princeton Arts & Entertainment!
Welcome! This group offers diversity in it's activities, and includes fabulous creative outdoor events too. Whether it be film, theater, comedy, concerts, ethnic dinners, or an afternoon in our "Walk & Dine" series, you will find much to do here to stimulate the senses and create wonderful memories.
Princeton A&E include all social arts, dining, entertainment, music, sporting and outdoor events!
If you are Italian or have an interest in Italian/Sicilian culture, language, cuisine, film, arts, or festival, please also join our highly spirited and fun sister group: "FESTA!" http://www.meetup.com/FESTA-cucinaitaliana
Princeton A&E has been around since 2009, and continues to be a great group and eclectic mix of men and women of all cultures, walks of life, mostly from 40 to 64. We have a common interest in social arts that include movies, theater, music, comedy, and dining events. We pride ourselves on not being “clique-y” and everyone is personally welcomed!
Movies: Film-wise, this group gives us the opportunity to screen a diverse selection of current, classic, notable, and memorable films in commercial venues, private venues, dining venues, film festivals, libraries, and screening rooms. It also provides a nice social environment to eat, chat and laugh, and an opportunity to discuss afterwards the films we see. Bob leads our Monday night film series at Princeton University during the school year.
A&E: We also add to our schedule live performances, theater, comedy shows, concerts, readings, dining events, museum walks, game nights, and other cultural activities that we find interesting for our group. We will soon add a new co-organizer who will schedule concerts, jazz nights, dance, and other wonderful music events. Lida leads our free jazz events in and around New Brunswick! Lisa will offering up some classical and symphony events in the Princeton area.
Social and Dining: Our dining series are always amazing, be it Asian, Italian, Ethnic, Pizza, Diners, Great Finds, etc. Of course, we will continue these and add some interesting Happy Hour events every so often!
Active Outdoor Events: We add to our calendar some interesting walks, hikes and other fun outdoor active activities. These encompass beach outings, sporting events, spectator sports, etc.
We collect $1.00 from each member at our events to help defray the costs of administering and operating this group.
Our History ~
We have been around for almost EIGHT years, and over 800 events! We have a proven track record, and that's because of the diversity of our events and the wonderful membership that makes them so much fun!
#1: We have a photo policy. If you don't have a photo of yourself attached to your Meetup profile, you won't be admitted to the group. (That means no cats, dogs, boats, monuments, flowers, etc.).
#2: You must have a valid name on your Meetup account, not things like "Dragon Lady" or "Rover's Dad." You don't need to post your full name, and I actually encourage you not to. But please put your first name up there, and if it's a common one, add a last initial, i.e., Jane D.
