What we're about

This is a group for women (age 50 and up) interested in making new friends with those of us who are semi-retired, professional, friendly, interesting and happy with life in general. Meet for coffee, book club, bowling, movies, FOOD, WINE...whatever helps to create an environment for good authentic, (non-political and non-religious PLEASE) discussions and friendships. I have owned a successful small business for many years. I have wonderful friends...problem is, they are all over the country due to my career. Now that I am working and traveling a lot less, I am feeling a void! It’s time for me to build more local friendships. I would love to hear ideas about how we can proceed with creating a friendly group of buddies who are curious, enjoy a variety of conversations and have good hearts. We usually meet somewhere in the Mid Peninsula-Los Altos, Menlo Park, Foster City, Redwood City.

The Friends Group March Book Club & Lunch

Celia's Mexican Restaurant - Menlo Park

We have chosen what "promises" to be a "beautifully written and incredibly funny" book for our March 27th book club meeting - Eleanor Oliphant is Fine by Gail Honeyman We discovered it is part of Reese Witherspoon's Book Club picks and is soon to be made into a movie. The story is about an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger...what can be more intriguing? We hope you can join us for what looks to be an enjoyable and interesting discussion as we munch on some hearty Mexican food.
