What we're about

Let's be a friendly group of ladies of all situations, ages, creeds, skin tones and orientations, who live in, want to live in or work near the Uptown, Wedge, Linden Hills and surrounding areas and are seeking girl time out. Let's explore new bars and restaurants in our area, return to favorites, go to various events and festivals, walk together around our neighborhood lakes and talk about what's been spinning around in our brains.

You may be new to the area or just looking for some lady friends to hang out with... Whatever your reasons, let's get together and be there for each other :-)

Although some of our meetups are happy hours, if you don't drink, we don't care, come anyway! Order water and enjoy the companionship and the cheap happy hour eats that will be listed out in the meeting invites.

Our group still has small meetups and that generally means 4 to 8 people at each event where we really get to know each other. It also makes being an organizer is tough when this happens. Read on...


New Rule: Before this summer, I didn't take any action regarding no-shows, but after experiencing multiple meetups and having 9 RSVPs and only 3 or just me showing up, I've decided that if someone can't be bothered to change an RSVP to no before the start time of a Meetup, that no-show will count against that person and if it happens 3 times, I will remove that person from the group. Myself and the other organizers are really tired of sitting alone in a restaurant for 15, 20, or 30 minutes waiting for no-shows!

Who can join: you must be a woman and that's it. If you are a guy and try to join, I will remove you & ban you from trying to join again, nothing personal ^_^

Our sister meetup: I am also the organizer of the Western Suburbs Women's Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Western-Suburbs-Womens-Group/)- same "ladies only" rules, same everything. If Uptown Girls has nothing on the schedule for the day you want to do something, it's possible that WSWM will and it may only be 20 minutes away, in the 'burbs

Uptown Anna's Online Dating for Dummies (& Smarties) — Fun! Free! Fabulous!

On March 23, join us in the afternoon in Minneapolis for this fun look at the ABCs of online dating in today's world. We'll go over how to get started, what different websites/apps are like, what works, what doesn't, and everything you wanted to know about online dating. We will be meeting at a large house in Dinkytown. This time, you're really going to do it! Bring your laptop, tablet/iPad, or cellphone to set up your online account with one of the many free dating apps. Those of us who have been online dating before will be there to help you write that first profile and post some good pictures of you. You must have photos (because online daters are visual!), so have a bunch of them to pick from if you can. We will share tips and words of advice while laughing at today's crazy world of social connections. Anna has been dating online since 1997, and while the ways and means of connecting have changed for many of us, the basics never change. She, along with your hostess Tracy and a few others of us who have experience in online dating, hope to impart some of this knowledge to you. And for the experienced, you are also welcome to come and hopefully learn new things, like: Did you know that Google offers a free app that allows you to text and call people from a different phone number that you choose, but still from your cell phone? It's called Google Voice, and we'll show you how to set it up. There is plenty of room at the house, so bring a friend or two. Just be sure to add them to your RSVP so we know how many are coming. Food: Please bring a bag of chips or a few veggies to share, if you would like. Bottled water will be provided.

Tues., Wee Fish & Chips & Winning(!!) at Trivia at Morrissey's

Are you feeling Irish this evening? Then join us at Morrissey's on Lake Street. We meet for dinner (or snacks) at 7 and then play Trivia at 8 pm. And we've won a few times, so it's really fun!! Especially if Michaela and Paula come, the secret to our success! Sample appetizer: Morrissey’s Chips or Wee Tots - seasoned pub chips (fries), served with house made curry sauce. $6.00 About the place: "We are the first Irish Pub in Uptown Minneapolis, and proud to be an authentic, proper Pub, featuring great food, live music and genuine hospitality. We're the newest link in a long chain of Irish pubs, dating all the way back to 1875, when The Erin Go Bragh Pub opened in Duluth, MN. "We take an equal amount of pride in our food. We prepare far more than just typical “Pub Grub”. Our menu is full of Irish classic’s, including Shepard’s Pie and Corned Beef and Cabbage, but we are best known for our (Amazing!) Fish and Chips! We also have some of the best Burgers, Sandwiches, and Appetizer’s in town!. "We feature fantastic Live Music every weekend, and host a packed house for Trivia, every Tuesday night."
