What we're about

This Meetup is for people born in (or close to!) the 1980s. We are here to meet new people in the area and make friends. We get together for drinks, meals, hiking, history and more - mostly in and around Wilmington. We occasionally host events elsewhere in DE, PA, MD, and NJ. Have an idea for something we should try? Send us a message!

Note: All 80s Babies should have a profile photo that shows your face and your user name should include your first name, or whatever you prefer to be called. We're so excited to meet you, and this helps our event hosts and other members know who to look for!

Safety measures for 1980s Babies events starting Jan. 1
(Update from Dec. 26, 2021)

Given the close proximity nature of our events, effective Jan. 1 for the indefinite future, full vaccination will be required for all in-person 1980s Babies events, similar to what the City of Philadelphia (and many other major cities) are implementing for venues that serve food.

For all in-person events occurring on and after Jan. 1, 2022, you will see "COVID 19 vaccination required. " Full vaccination / "COVID vaccination required" means the attendee has received two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Booster doses are encouraged, but not required.

We will be following the guidelines used by the City of Philadelphia, as outlined here: https://www.phila.gov/2021-12-13-you-will-need-to-be-fully-vaccinated-against-covid-to-enter-any-establishment-that-serves-food-in-philly/

Some of the venues for our events may also have additional safety mandates - we will continue to follow those safety measures, including mask requirements, where applicable. Please know that for the near future I see this vaccination requirement as the minimum safety measure. 1980s Babies Event Hosts and I will be watching how things go over the next couple of weeks - we may also limit the number of attendees or even put a temporary freeze on in-person 1980s Babies events.

VIRTUAL Happy Hour

Online event

Join us for a VIRTUAL happy hour! Grab your favorite beverage (even better if it's from a local brewery, winery or cidery!) and put your feet up while we hang out safely from home.

We'll catch up about life, and play some trivia or games if people want.
