What we're about

This group is for young people (20's & 30's) looking for a little somethin' on the weekends other than the usual grind. This is also a shout out to all of you who are new in town and are looking to meet people! So! Let's get together once a week and enjoy the "scene" here in the fabulous Metro Detroit area. Activities include outings to bars and restaurants, witty banter (if we're lucky), concerts, community events, and the occasional house party.

Friendly Guidelines for Acceptance into the Group:

1. Photo: please make sure your profile pic is a clear photo of you! That way we can recognize you at events.

2. Profile Questions: Nothing fancy, keep it brief but informative! You really do have to fill them out before we accept you into the group. Pro tip: it says spots, not sports.

Guidelines for Weekenders:

1. You are responsible for yourself and your guests! We expect you and your guests to behave like responsible adults. Mind your P's and Q's, be nice to the other members, don't unload all your problems onto people just trying to have a good time, don't pressure others to do things they don't want to, etc. If there are any complaints, you'll be kicked out. :)

2. This isn't a dating group! If you end up meeting someone you really fancy in the group, that's great. But this isn't a singles group or online dating site; our number one purpose is to make lasting friendships! If you're making other people uncomfortable with unwanted come-ons, you will be asked to leave the group. So.. don't be that guy or girl.

3. Be courteous to your host and update your rsvp's: if something comes up and you can't make it, no worries! Just change your rsvp to "not going" so we aren't waiting for you for the festivities to begin. Excessive no-shows of "yes" rsvp-ers may be removed from the group at the organizers disgression.

4. Download the app: it's the best way to get real-time info about where to find us or last minute changes. Check the group the day of the event for any updates.

5. Help make this group awesome! You can suggest events and activities, and even to host them yourself. No promotional spam though, please.

Please message the Organizer if you have any questions!

'80s & '90s Virtual Dance PJ Party with Live DJ! 🕺🏻

*Update: the date for this event has changed to Saturday, September 26th. Let's practice social dis-dancing with a throwback party! Where else would you 'Wannabe' on a Friday night? Sing and dance along to all your favorite jams (which you can request in the Zoom chat) from the comfort of your home. There will be music trivia, contests, and prizes for best dancing, best PJs, and best virtual background! This is a multi-platform public event, so there will be people outside of the Weekenders as well. It's kinda like a silent disco. We'll all have our volume cranked but mics muted, and dance among the gallery-view crowd. It's sure to be a big event, don't miss out! Tickets are $10, and must be purchased in advance here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/80s-90s-pajama-party-tickets-118550378373?aff=ebdssbonlinesearch FAQ: What is the link to join? The Zoom link will be provided to you directly from the party host.

Book Club: Little Women 📚

Online event

Does anyone mind if we shift book club to Sundays? That will give us an extra Saturday for any last-minute speed reading :p Book: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (https://amzn.to/2FjH4L4) Generations of readers young and old, male and female, have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcott’s most popular and enduring novel, Little Women. Here are talented tomboy and author-to-be Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy, united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War.

Book Club: The Brothers Karamazov 📚

Online event

Does anyone mind if we shift book club to Sundays? That will give us an extra Saturday for any last-minute speed reading :p Book: The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (any translation) Location: TBD This one had the most votes, but we're going to do it last because it is a bit longer than the others. I haven't decided yet, but this version seems to be the most-read English translation: https://amzn.to/3iyUCk6 Zoom links are posted in the comments the day of the event.
