What we're about

Social group for ages 21 and up. A group for people to get together and make memories. If you're new to the area/group and you're shy and unsure about your first meet up. Message me and I'll meet you ahead of time, so you'll know someone when you go to your first Meetup. If you can't make a meet up, that's fine, just let someone know.

If I personally make an event and no one had signed up within 2 hours of it starting, I'll more likely cancel it.

If you'd like set up a meetup let me know and I'll set you up as an event organizer!

If you can please make your profile pic of your actual self. It'll be easier to find you at events!!

Walk and Dinner: Blue Ridge Tunnel and 7 Arrows

Blue Ridge Tunnel Trail, East Trailhead

Let get together and go for a walk after work and then grab dinner. If you can only make one or the other that's fine, just let us know. Lets meet at the EAST Entrance 215 Afton Depot Lane, Afton VA 22920. Since parking is small, we might have to meet at top of Afton and carpool from there.

Raclette Grill & Rifftrax/MysteryScienceTheater: Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory(1971)

This is a slow-eating, social eating experience. We all cook bits and pieces, with melty cheese, while we enjoy Mystery Science Theater 3000(MST3K)/Rifftrax poking fun at this great movie.

Sample trailer:

6pm: Arrive, socialize, setup.
7pm: Movie and cooking

What to bring:
A meat, a vegetable(or two), and a melty cheese. Chopped into medium/small sizes ready to grill. Google-image-search Raclette Grill for ideas if unsure.

Meat ideas:
Thin strips of uncooked beef, chicken, pork. Marinaded or not. Kielbasa sausage cut semi-thin, raw shrimp.

Vegetable ideas:
Thin strips or rings of colored bell peppers, onions, Cherry tomatoes cut in half. Thin sliced mushrooms, zucchini, squash. Asparagus stalks. Pre-cooked potato pieces to then grill. Any leafy garden herbs you have. A French baguette sliced thin for toasting, then dipping.

Cheese ideas:
Bring your favorite melty cheese. Raclette, Gruyere, Fondue cheese, or just your favorite easier to find cheese. We will make it work. :)

Swiss cheese fondue recipe as another idea for anyone wanting to try their favorite cheese made into fondue:
https://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/classic-swiss-cheese-fondue
1 garlic clove,
halved 1 pound Gruyère cheese,
grated 1/2 pound Emmentaler cheese or other Swiss cheese grated
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons kirsch
Freshly ground pepper
Freshly grated nutmeg

I will provide chocolate, marshmallow, graham crackers for a late-evening melty desert on same hotplate.

And since the movie is about a chocolate factory, we might even have a chocolate fondue fountain. :D
