What we're about

If you are single, in (or near) your 40s, and prefer to meet people in an 'activity-based' setting, you've probably noticed a bit of a void in the Twin Cities Meetup market.

If the idea of participating in a variety of activities while you make new friends is your 'jam', this is your group! We welcome people of all socio-political, sexual, and ethnic backgrounds to check out our upcoming activities. (You don't even need to know what socio-political means!). We try to keep events during the week small and intimate so to accelerate the get-to-know each other process.

This group is here to fill that void (We cap the group at 650)! Join now before the wait list begins. We don't aim to be the biggest Meetup Social group, just the highest quality with the best peeps!!!!

Our goal is to not just get people out but to keep them coming back for more.
And once you join the veteran ranks, you'll be ushered into a plethora of even more top-shelf experiences outside of Meetup.

If you have a recommendation for an activity that you think will help strangers become friends, we want to hear about it.

FYI.....joining this group does involve; answering profile questions, having a real name that matches your profile name with a real photo, and organizer approval.

Let's Rock Out with GRiND at the Doghouse!!!

The Dog House Bar & Grill

Let's rock out with GRiND! One of my favorite bands! We'll meet at 8:30 for food, drinks, and lively conversation. Once the music starts, we'll be dancing and/or just sitting back and enjoying this talented group of musicians. There is a $6 cover, and the show is well worth the cost. Here's info from their website: GRiND is a high-energy rock band that brings the party everywhere we play! Our "show" is non-stop entertainment - a fun time whether you want to get up and dance, or sit back and enjoy. Performing over 700 shows in the last 11 years, we are a group of professional, seasoned musicians that have built a huge, loyal following playing rock/pop/93X style cover tunes from the 90's, the 90's and today!! We set ourselves apart from the average cover band by our on stage chemistry, showmanship and rock show atmosphere, adding our own little twist and goofy stage antics to the high energy modern rock/grunge tunes that you know and love. This is the place to have fun, dance, live, love, laugh, hug, scream, drink and party it up all night long! Come see a GRiND show at a live music venue near you, and join the party!!! https://www.grindmn.com/ http://thedoghousebarandgrill.com/
