What we're about

The idea is to allow conversations leading to finding people that you may actually like being friends with. Some of us don't have the luxury of being in the company of friends who have the same mental frequency as ours and over time it simply leads to feeling of loneliness especially for outsiders in a city who don't have their family or childhood friends to hang out with. I have been in this city for several years now and all of a sudden I find myself devoid of like minded company.

This is not just another happy hour socializing club where you are simply meeting random strangers to just hang out for the night and talk about the weather. This doesn't mean that we won't have fun, but simply that there will be a theme of every meetup and people who identify with it, can come and meet more of their kinds.

From meeting to celebrate jimmy Hendrix's birth anniversary at a Karaoke place to a discussion on Presidential elections to talking about LGBT lifestyle- the topics can vary.

Topics will be decided based on feedback and recommendations from the members.

I tried looking for such a place on meetup and couldn't find it, and so I decided to start one myself!

No Show Policy: (Not applicable to big events like Concerts, festivals etc.)
The Like Minded Group Organizers request that you please keep your RSVPs for our events up-to-date, especially when there is an attendance limit &/or waitlist. Note that if you no-show to 4 (max limit), you will automatically be removed from the group. No-shows are disrespectful to other group members that want to attend and are on a waitlist, and could have attended had other members changed their RSVP rather than no-showed. Last minute cancellations are also discouraged as it’s hard for someone to attend with little notice prior to the event. We understand that certain circumstances and emergencies arise, so feel welcome to reach out to us if/when this happens. We want everyone to be able to enjoy our events, which is why we decided to start this policy. Thank you!

Garden 🌿 to Glass 🍹 Experience- PLEASE READ BEFORE RSVPing

Olbrich Botanical Gardens

PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE RSVPing: This is a public event for which you need to buy a ticket. There are only 20 tickets available to the general public for each date, so buy early if you really want to come. Please do not RSVP for this Meetup event until you purchase your ticket. I need to let the staff at Olbrich know how many are attending from our Meetup group, and I can only do that accurately if everyone on the going list actually purchased a ticket and plans to go. Garden to Glass Experience: Totally Tropical (http://www.olbrich.org/visit/gardentoglass.cfm) Escape to the tropics and explore the wonders of the rainforest in the Bolz Conservatory. Get an insider's view of this indoor tropical oasis and discover the plants, stories, and people that make it one of Madison's most iconic places! As you smell, touch, and taste your way through this guided sensory tour, you'll encounter plants both familiar and unique. More than 650 species of tropical plants call the Conservatory home, along with a rushing waterfall, free-flying birds, and colorful koi. At the end, enjoy a signature cocktail created with ingredients derived from rainforest plants. You will take home a souvenir glass along with recipes to make your own botanically inspired drinks. $25 per person, includes tour & signature cocktail and glass. ($26.87 w/service fees) Purchase tickets here, make sure to choose the correct date (April 25), & answer the questions: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3613636 General Information • Upon arrival, your Experience Host will meet you in the Visitor Center Lobby. • Complimentary parking is available at the Gardens. • Dress appropriately for the weather; the Conservatory is a warm, tropical environment (70-85º F year-round) • Water is provided during the experience, but personal water bottles are also welcome. • Participants will be standing for the majority of the tour. Benches are available through the Conservatory for short rests. • A "mocktail" (non-alcoholic) version of the signature cocktail can be provided with advance notice. - Ages 21+ only I am planning to go to another Meetup event immediately after this. However, if there are enough RSVPs for this, we could possibly go to dinner afterwards.
