What we're about

Our group is for Young Professionals that are first and foremost looking to meet new friends in Pinellas County. You may also find that this group works well to network with your new friends for business however that is secondary. This group isn’t for everyone…

We are focused on attracting positive Young Professionals from ages 21-39 simply because we know that it is many times easier to relate to people in our own generation.

Our experience is connecting 1000s of people with a strong track record. Chris and Ryan started the Pinellas County Meetup Group in 2015 and have been constantly re-evaluating how to create a stronger and more personal network.

10 things you can expect when you join our group -

1. You are becoming part of a community of people where you can thrive - making things happen and living life to the fullest.

2. Connecting with others will be easy as we are happy to introduce you to others so that you feel welcome.

3. Experience the best of Pinellas County with fun events that appeal to the young professional demographic - Charity drives, Social Brunches, Concerts, Private Tours, Team Sports, Boat Outings, Wine Mixers, Speed dating, Fitness Meetups, Pub Crawls, and much more!

4. An environment where a really close group of people have the time of their lives! We encourage each other to succeed both personally and professionally. Whether you are single, a couple, or you even become a couple when part of this group, you’ll fit right in!

5. Networking potential as opportunities open up with the more people you get to know. Part of our job is to network and through our experience we have realized how rewarding it is to see people build business connections and lasting friendships.

6. A judgement free zone… with no tolerance for drama or making people feel uncomfortable.

We make it a point to be inclusive of all members and encourage our members to share these same values. We reserve the right to remove any member at our discretion.

7. Great perks… as our group grows in size we are able to use that to our advantage with local businesses offering perks, discounts and freebies. Want to help us succeed? Invite your friends!

8. Perfect for both people new in town and natives alike, we have an appetite for exploring and creating new experiences for our group. As real estate professionals, we have the leverage to manage a group like this successfully and be your local community experts.

9. An opportunity to grow and be a leader among young professionals. We are always looking for event organizers that have ideas they want to put into action. We give our members a platform via a private FB group where ideas are shared and experiences are created.

10. After creating a meetup group that still runs strong today with over 2700 members, our mission is to take this group to the next level. Help us grow the best social group for Young Professionals in the 727 area code!

Bi-Weekly Thirsty Thursday Happy Hour - Tryst

Tryst Gastro Lounge  

EDIT - This event is at Tryst Gastropub right next to the canopy. Drinking as a hobby can be expensive. What better way to justify your mild alcoholism than to save a little bit of money during happy hour??? Happy hours are fun. Never too crowded, never too loud, a good chance to come out and have a couple drinks and maybe snack on an appetizer while meeting new friends. Thursday is a like the Christmas Eve of weekends, gotta start celebrating a little early sometimes. This event will be every other week with The Canopy as a home base. Their happy hour is pretty sweet - it includes wells, wines and beers for $3, $5 Sangrias and 'small bite appetizers' for $6. Also the sweet view is free. I'll periodically switch up the venues to give us a little variety. Check out this fantastic website I just found today that outlines all the happy hours in St. Pete. https://www.eatcheap.co/stpete-thursday-drinks Feel free to come solo, bring a friend, maybe bring your online date in case they're a weirdo and you need a smooth escape plan. See you there!

Casual Saturday Volleyball!!

North Shore Park

Hell yes let's do it again. We've done this twice now and it's turned into volleyball plus an after party. First time we ended up grilling out after and last weekend we hit up a few bars. Protip - if you're like me and start drinking at 1pm you'll need to go home early. I'll bring a ball and some music, you bring yourself and a friend if you want. Depending on how many people show up we might need someone else to bring a ball. All skill levels welcome!

Free Friday Night Shuffleboard

St. Pete Shuffle

St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club has free (donation based) shuffle board (first come first serve) every Friday night. I’ll bring the name tags, you BYOB and a couple bucks to give the club. We’ll play some shuffle board and get to know each other! They have volunteer instructors to teach those who don’t know how to play! I’ll send messages when I get there to let everyone know where to meet! Stpeteshuffle.com/st-pete-shuffle.html SPSCYP bi-monthly Meetup! Get your tangs ready!? && stay out of the kitchen!
