Friendship Circle - Come Meet Some New Friends!!

The Room Santa Monica

$10.00

Have you been wondering where you can meet some new friends? Ladies and Gents, "Friendship Circle" is the place to be!!! Join us and form new friendships. There are even guests that return to other events together after meeting each other at these events. If you are new to LA or been here your whole life and want to reach out to new people, this event is a great place to start. We have a ice breaker to help you become engaged rather quickly. I mean, you can chat all night too but this a great starting point to mix and mingle with everyone in the room. :) We will hold our event at The Room in Santa Monica. This hideaway lounge features classic libations in a swanky, dark setting with cozy booths. We will have the entire venue to ourselves for the Meetup before the lounge opens to the general public - that way everyone will be there for the Meetup looking to make friends. When it does open to the public stay and enjoy yourself as the DJ starts spinning! Our events continue to receive great feedback. I really believe it's because most of our guests come with a great attitude and want to meet others. And, of course, the laughter is contagious too! Lastly, we are all about connections. Let's make a friend or two or three! We can go snowboarding, hiking, or museums together in the future! Dress Code: smart, stylish; no sportswear or baseball caps. Join me and other fun peeps at The Room for a great evening. The cost is $10 cash at the door. Agenda: 7:30 PM to 8:00 PM Check-in, grab a drink, say hello to people around you. :) 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM Ice Breaker Game Then The Room will open to the general public. Stick around and mingle or dance the night away when the DJ comes on! Parking: There is a parking lot directly behind the venue. Otherwise there is ample metered street parking. Expect a big turnout. This Meetup event is crossed-posted on a bunch of meetup groups with Mix Professionals (http://www.mixprofessionals.com/) being the main meetup. Expect a great turnout!! :)

Rafting, Hiking (HUGE Sequoia Trees, Waterfalls and more) & Camping Trip [LAPSE]

We are going rafting down the Kern River and camping at Lake Isabella! This will be the 6th trip & always had a blast! Plus lets visit the Sequoia Trees! The funds cover rafting, Friday & Saturday dinners & pastries and coffee for breakfast & the campground. :) Bring your sleeping bag and come pitch a tent with us. ;) Besides rafting, we may kayak depending on water flow. We will go down the river twice. We have our own private campsite so everyone will hang out together! We are right on the lake with beautiful views and opportunities to explore day and night. Let's have a blast! We are close to civilization - near the supermarket, drug store, Starbucks and more. Itinerary: Friday - drive up about 150 miles. Ideally leave before traffic, but if you have to leave after work that is fine! When you get to the campground set up and then hang out and mingle with everyone. Saturday - With your new friends, visit the Sequoia trees and secret waterfall in the morning. Then head back raft in the afternoon! Hang out with your new friends in the evening! Sunday - you can head straight home or do something else such as see more Sequoias, enjoy some hot springs and/or try out the water slides. Questions: 1. What do I need to bring? A full list will be provided a week or two before the trip. But basically you need to bring your personal amenities and tent, sleeping bag air mattress etc. 2. What if I don't have a sleeping bag and/or tent? If you don't have a sleeping bag buy one or borrow one. You don't need a fancy one - a $20 one from Big 5 or Target will do. Or you can ask here is someone will share. Every time we've done this trip people have been willing to share tent space. 3. How does carpool work? The organizers will coordinate carpool for confirmed attendees based on where people are leaving from, when they can leave and whether or not they can drive. Departure times are determined by drivers. Expect to hear more about 1 week prior to the trip. Please do not use the comments to look for carpool - we will handle it. 4. What will the weather be like? Typically the weather in the area is high 70's/80's in the day and high 50's at night. It's great weather to raft and camp! 5. What if I don't know anyone else going - is it weird to go by myself? Not at all! Most people come by themselves to these events and have a blast and end up with a new social circle of friends! 6. How do I lock in my spot? This trip is posted on many Meetup groups. I am centralizing everyone going into one group. If you want to go you must RSVP on my main group. Spots go to first paid, regardless of when you RSVP. This trip will fill up quickly so if you want to go lock in your spot with a payment. Here is a link to my main Meetup with more details and payment instructions: http://bit.ly/RaftingMeetup This has been one of our most popular trips and has always been a great time!

Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks - Memorial Day Weekend :) !!

Have you ever been to Zion or Bryce Canyon? If you have, you probably recall how marvelous they are. If you never been, it is time for a visit! (This is by far my favorite National Park and I been to many of them!!!!). We last visited Zion in 2012, 2015, and 2018 and are going back in 2019. We are staying at a beautiful home that can sleep many of us comfortably! :) What is so awesome about staying at a house? We will have all the amenities of a home (bathroom with shower and flushing toilet, bed to sleep on, towels etc) and but still sit by the campfire all night!!! We can enjoy the fire-pit, hot-tub, and an amazing view (ton of stars in the sky!!!!). This would be one of those trips you can write home about. I am excited just thinking about being in Zion National Park and the house makes it that much more awesome!!! You don't have to worry about packing for dinner. With the money we put together, I will buy food and with some of your help, we can have delicious dinners together! :) I would definitely bring 🍺 and more to share! It's always a good time!!!! :) For breakfast, I will pick up oatmeal and pastries for us. I will also bring coffee and tea. :) For Lunch, I normally just buy a sandwich at the store, throw it in my bag and head out on my hikes. Bring your hydration system and let's do some amazing hikes! For those that want to head over to Bryce Canyon National Park (http://www.nps.gov/brca/index.htm)for a day, it is completely worth it too! :) It's just a little over an hour away and you'll get to see the hoodoos! Don't know what a hoodoo is? Then you must get over to Bryce. :) We have the house from Friday May 24 until Monday May 27 (Memorial Day). Like last time I plan to depart LA on Thursday night and stay in Las Vegas for the evening. Zion is 6-7 hours from Downtown LA, so if you want to leave Friday that is fine too! To help cover the cost of the trip, the cost is $275 per person. There is only enough room for 34 people (17 guys and 17 ladies). Please also do take into consideration the $30 per car national park entrance fee (good for 7 days). This can be split between the people you carpool with. Lastly, of course, there is the cost of splitting gas with the driver. If you are ready to see some of the most magnificent national parks, join me for a trip to Zion National Park (Bryce Canyon National Park and Kanab (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g57030-Kanab_Utah-Vacations.html)if time allows). Getting there: I will help coordinate carpool for the confirmed attendees. This trip is posted on many Meetup groups. I am centralizing everyone going into one group. If you want to go you must RSVP on my main group. Spots go to first paid, regardless of when you RSVP. This trip will fill up quickly so if you want to go lock in your spot with a payment.

July 4 Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park Camping Trip [LAPSE]

What are you doing for July 4th Holiday Weekend? Have you ever been to Sequoia National Park? The Sequoia trees are majestic! Let's go and spend a few days in the Park. What's nice about our campsite is that there are NO other campsites right next to us; we are by ourselves. Nearby is a shower, restaurant and convenience store. Perfection! We've done this trip before and had a blast! The cost $100 - goes towards the campground, Thursday, Friday and Saturday dinners plus coffee, oatmeal and pastries in the mornings -- and some other goodies. There are several places to pickup lunch. Roll up your sleeping bag, dust off your tent, have a cushy air-mattress along with your hiking attire and let's hang out the beautiful National Parks. Don't forget your bug spray, sun screen and lounge chair. Of course, bring some money to buy sandwiches for lunch or to shower.
