What we're about

Hi - our group is for meeting new people, making friends, networking, & simply having fun! Many of our events will include happy hours, dinners, films & film festivals, cultural events, brunches, and more. If that all sounds like fun, then you are found the right group.

Our main Event Host is David, and although most of his events are in Philadelphia, we welcome input from group members about ideas for events & assistance in hosting in NJ. David usually lists his phone # in his events, but you can also MeetUp Message him with ideas and he'll coordinate it with you. Our events are usually FREE to Attend, and at happy hours & dinners we will all receive separate checks, so you are only paying for what you ordered. We've tried to use lots of common sense to keep things simple, low cost, and fun!

Still sound like a terrific group? Next step is checking out our upcoming events & RSVPing. See you soon!

However, there are over a dozen spots where you can buy food in The Bourse, so everyone is welcome to mix & match their tea with all types of food, including: Indian, Egyptian, tacos, Belgian chocolates, Filipino food, and lots & lots more! Here is a link to The Bourse website: https://theboursephilly.com SPECIAL DISCOUNT ... Kari's Tea Bar has offered us a 10% discount on Thursday, but you MUST say you are with the MeetUp group when ordering to receive the discount. I will arrive early to save some tables for us. Ideally these tables will be in the center seating area, but if not please look for us. I will have MeetUp signs or call me if you don't see us - David[masked] WEIRD ASPECT OF THIS EVENT ... does anyone remember the time we went to The Bourse for a Tea event and there was '80s music & karaoke going on? Well, it will be happening again on June 27th when we'll be there. It was fun to watch & one person we knew did get up and sing, so why not? This is a FREE event to attend, but everyone will have to pay separately for their own tea & food purchases. Everyone is welcome to bring friends, the more the merrier! see you there, David[masked]
