What we're about
"THERE ARE NO STRANGERS HERE; ONLY FRIENDS YOU HAVEN'T YET MET." --William Butler Yeats--
ARE YOU LOOKING TO MEET NEW PEOPLE, TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND HAVE FUN?
DO YOU LOVE A GREAT BRUNCH AND WANT TO DISCOVER NEW RESTAURANTS?
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR CULTURAL AND INTELLECTUAL ACTIVITIES?
The BRUNCH BUNCH is an intentionally small group that is made up of adults of all ages and backgrounds who want to get together for brunch and activities as both are always better shared with friends :-)
We are a RALEIGH based group so the majority of our dining events will be in Raleigh and occasionally in the surrounding areas. In the past five years, the group has dined at 118 different restaurants and explored 45 different towns. We've found a lot of hidden gems and off the beaten path things to do!!!
In addition to our FOODIE events for those with an inquisitive side, we have fun EXPLORING new places, trying new things and exercising our minds. Our events focus on the HIDDEN GEMS and unique places and activities in the area. Whether you are new to the area or lived here for a while, this group may be for you!!!
Some of these outings will be in the Triangle for those that prefer to stay closer to home. Others will be day trips that you will need to drive to the location.
Suggestions that you'd like to step up host are always welcome!
In the next few months we will be:
• Seeing a Special exhibit at the NC Art Museum

New Members are always welcome :-) The group is open to both men and women. We welcome you to join the group and check out the calendar of upcoming events, browse our past events so that you can see if this is a group you'd enjoy!!!
• Complete the profile section
• UPLOAD A CLEAR PHOTO OF YOURSELF to your account as this is required to join and remain a member
• Browse the calendar and RSVP for one of the many upcoming events
• We have a waiting list to join at times so you will be approved as soon as a spot opens up.
Attending events is a requirement to remain a member of the group. If you do not attend events you will be removed from the group after a grace period.
We are also a community funded group so events that you'd like to attend will require a small fee to hold your spot. This fee goes to helping cover the cost of the meetup.com website. If you prefer to pay a flat fee instead of per event, for the remainder of the group year, that is an option.
Our events are just for members of this meetup group so we do not usually allow guests. They are welcome to join the group though. Our events open about 30 days before the event when we have a better idea of our schedules.
