• What we'll do Netflix Night is on! We'll see "Trading Places" (1983), a TRUE CLASSIC! If you've never seen this movie, you should come!

Bring for yourself, or bring for everyone. CAT: I now have a kitty at my place, so if you're allergic, please be forewarned! RSVP: PLEASE keep your RSVP up to date. No need for explanations if your plans change. Just update your RSVP. If your plans change after the event has started, just post a comment that you're not coming. Thanks! MBTA: My place is two blocks south of the Charles/MGH Red Line station. Come out the main station entrance and turn left. Cross the double-street (with CVS just on your left), head two blocks south on Charles St, then turn right onto Pinckney St. At 145 Pinckney you'll see a glass entranceway. Come on in! PARKING: My street is a stone's throw from Charles St, which is all metered parking. On Sundays the meters do not need to be fed. However, this is still Boston, so coming by the MBTA is always recommended. BREAK/INTERMISSION: There will be a quick break in the middle of the movie. This event is cross-posted in: and maybe a few more.

What we're about

Welcome to Social Fun. A fun + friendly group. Ages range 21 to 59+. A diverse group of singles, couples, married + divorced members enjoying local social activities: dining, movies, parties, wine tasting, hikes, walks, outdoors, Music, Art, Culture, social networking, etc. Enjoying the good life in the New England and Boston Areas.

With 12,000 members we’re the biggest Boston Social Meetup that still maintains a friendly close knit family feel since there are 90+ Organizers running 60+ local monthly events. Average event size is 20 members providing a pleasant real life experience to make lifelong friendships and possible more (like marriage). Everyone is welcome.

We look forward to meeting you so please sign up for an event today and have fun. It will be one of the best choices you have ever made. Now get out and enjoy some Social Fun.

UPDATE-PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a dating group, although 90% of the members are single that is not the focus of the group. This group is about making friendships that can lead to dating as we've had over 82 members that have gotten married. This is directly attributed to the relaxed, no pressure non dating group setting we've created.

Costs: To join the group and attend most events is basically FREE, BUT we ask if you enjoyed the group, help us keep it going by making a $11 annual donation to help cover the costs associated with running such a large group like paying off the Meetup fees of $180/year.

ALL Members are required to have a recent real clear main profile photo of themselves or they will not be allowed to join this group or removed for lacking this photo. Please reapply to join with a conforming photo. Thanks.

Social Fun Members Credo

1. Participate in Social Fun to have fun and make new friends....Please do not create drama.

2. Members must have a completed profile with a clear, recent photo and profile information.

3. RSVP "YES" only when you’re 100% sure you can attend.

4. Arrive on time and never "No Show." Members who "No Show" take away RSVP slots from other Members and negatively impact Social Fun events.

5. Understand that after 3 'No Shows' over 3 months any Organizer CAN remove you from Social Fun

6. You are the ONLY ones capable of changing your Meetup Announcement e-mail settings. Social Fun Organizers cannot set these.
