Welcome to Chicago's largest bid whist & social club.
This is the grown up's table.
We are a "Grown 'n Sexy" bid whist club comprised of Chicago black professionals (and any other) who want to play, relax, and enjoy each other's company in a safe setting.
We host monthly events (sometimes more), annual tournaments, and impromptu get togethers just to keep it fun!
Who we're after
[*]If you're a Chicago black professional ready for more out of life, but want to avoid the club scene or partying with your kids, this group is for you.
[*]Normally events will be hosted at a member's home, a good venue, or a private room, but will always include food, drinks, and lots of trash talking!
[*]For non-Bid whist players who like the atmosphere & company of adults 35+, we plan evenings out (music, concerts, jazz), steppin' and line dancing sets, upcoming day trips and themed cruises (for ex. Soul Train cruise-January, Cincinnati Music Fest-May).
[*]Each event is a welcome relief from the work week.[*]Expect to spend about $20 per night out.
[*]I will use Groupon whenever available.
[*]House parties are BYOB & bring a dish to share.
[*]*note that Meetup charges the Organizer a fee to run this group, but as of now this fee is not passed on to members. We have suspended membership dues at this time to give you a taste of the group before you commit.
[*]In the future I will re-institute our usual dues of $20-$25 per year. This covers the cost of good member perks "Bid Bucks", surprises, fees for the site, supplies (cards, event planning, Birthday Club, real and novelty prizes for tournaments, Annual awards show (Best Dressed, Most Active, Player of the Year, etc.) and more).
[*]Member suggestions are welcome.
If you've never played, you're welcome to come and learn in our card shark infested waters. We look forward to meeting you.
