What we're about

Click for full calendar > https://www.meetup.com/Random-Fun-Stuff-I-Want-To-Do-On-a-Short-Notice-Club/events/calendar/

Meeting new people is a challenge and do you ever find yourself having more than enough things to do but no one to do it with. Expect an eclectic mix of activities ranging from happy hours to movies, plays or concerts, live music, dancing, and outdoorsy stuff like kayaking or bicycling and more (whatever randomly pops in our heads or you suggest). Expect food of some sort before, after or during many events.

This group is for people who don't take themselves too seriously and want to meet others in small groups.

If you want to be an event host so you may post an outing just let us know. The cool thing about hosting is you pick, the what, where and when of things that you want to do!

Please invite others to join our group to help it be vibrant.

Welcome aboard!

Don't send instant messages through meetup to folks you haven't met. Propositions to meet outside of meetup events to a virtual stranger is creepy. Of course a relevant message to an event host regarding an upcoming meetup is different.

Thank you for that consideration.

Players there are plenty of other sites if you just want to hook up one on one, don't make folks feel unsafe here. If you have done a meetup with someone and want to send them a good to see/meet you followup to me that is totally different, but if they do not reply or aren't interested don't be a "meetup creep". Of course it's great if folks "meetup" and some magic develops. So please remember while it is fun to "meetup", this group is not "hookup.com" or "match.com". Not everyone here is single or seeking a romance.

Remember if you receive an unsolicited message or suspicious or inappropriate behavior, please report it to Paul S, it is grounds for immediate dismissal of violating party. They probably are spamming others here and in other groups. We will ban them.

Critical Mass social bike ride 10 to 15 Miles at 10 mph, 🚴‍♀️🚴🚴‍♀️🚴‍♀️🚴

Critical Mass is a worldwide movement to help promote “share the road”. We come together to ride bicycles, creating awareness, respect, community and fun.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

We will be riding with the St Pete Critical mass group of maybe 40 people.

ST PETE —This ride is held on the last Friday of every month. In St. Pete, the gathering starts at at 7pm at Williams Park in Downtown — leaving at 7:30 sharp, so arrive by no later than 720.

This is a free, community-organized, family-friendly and medium-paced ride at about 10 mph, usually 10 to 15 miles long. All bikes and ages welcome! Don’t forget to tag your photos with #SPCM.

Be sure to have plenty of air before the ride so you can avoid flats. Florida law also requires bicycles to have front and rear lights at night and for all children under 16 to wear helmets.

Ride respectfully and responsibly. Ride at your own risk.

For more St. Pete Critical Mass ride information, contact https://www.facebook.com/groups/618110148259617/

When I went before most folks went out for refreshments. This month ride starts at Williams Park and ends at Fergs on Central.

We will be part of a larger public group. When I went there was a very vibrant, festive crowd.

Check out facebook for current month. https://www.facebook.com/groups/618110148259617/ for group

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The Critical Mass ride will move at a fairly casual pace of 10 mph. The ride is ~10 to 12 miles. The rides are at night, so we HIGHLY recommend Lights (LOTS of lights!) (Law REQUIRES lights at night, but that'll be between you and the popos. We're not your mom.) Critical Mass is a large group ride to have FUN, meet new people, and to promote urban bicycle safety, skills, & confidence.

By attending You accept all responsibility for risk of injury in this nighttime activity.

Remember besides lights being important on this nighttime ride that bright clothes and a helmet would be prudent too. Critical Mass does NOT have a support vehicle so test your bike before you get there, inflating tires and take a spin testing brakes and gears etc.

Questions? Post them here or im me through Meetup.

We are part of a larger group who are the actual hosts. So you need to look for other meetup members and say hi, as there are 30 to 50 riders or so, they may not recognize you if you don't make an effort to mingle.

• See all our rides we need you with us!

Fenway Music Series...Oysters and Bubbles

Fenway Hotel, Autograph Collection

Live music, sunset, and Oysters!
Half Dozen Roasted Oysters on the Half Shell, Roasted with garlic, parmesan, bread crumb butter and a full bar
This is an open, ticket-less event.
Limited seating available for this event. We recommend bringing lawn chairs or a blanket and making yourself comfortable on our front lawn!

I have no clue who the "live music" is but sometimes, you have to take chances. Parking IS by valet and very limited in the hood. The sunset alone is an event and the front lawn is huge but hard and lumpy, so bring a chair. Last time, there was plenty of seating so maybe keep the chairs in your car just in case.. See you there!
