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 (https://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

Upcoming events (4+)

Needs host - Brunch with the Uptown Girls (TBD where)

Needs a location

Hey all, because Omnicron is here (I just tested positive and so did another UG) I'm going to leave the brunches and hh's on here but I'm stepping down as host until this thing gets more under control in our area. I just don't feel comfortable encouraging group get-togethers right now.

For the brunches, we have other hosts listed, but they or you will have to pick out and make reservations at a restaurant.

FYI, my symptoms are very mild (yay vaccine!) but it's hard to sleep and I have a headache in the mornings. Also I can still taste food but nothing really appeals to me except a fried egg sandwich 🥪 🙃

And as the Sargent in Hill Street Blues used to say, you all be careful out there.

Wear masks, use gloves and keep your distance. Because the infected are out there and they are us!

Meet a Hennepin County Attorney candidate - Zoom!

Online event

Please join us THIS Wednesday (the 26th - I had it wrong before) at 6 pm on a Zoom call with one of the people running for Hennepin County Attorney. Simon Trautmann.

"In the wake of the murder of George Floyd, Simon was asked to lead preparations of the funeral with the National Action Network and N, Central University during the pandemic lockdown and civil unrest. As a result of the funeral, he subsequently worked with the university to enter a process of reckoning, repair and reconciliation that is translating into a historic realignment of university scholarship resources and institutional priorities."

Here's his website; https://simonforcountyattorney.com/meet-simon/

Needs host - Fri. Happy/Thankful Hour with the UGs — location TBD

Hey all, because Omnicron is here (I just tested positive and so did another UG) I'm going to leave the brunches and hh's on here but I'm stepping down as host until this thing gets more under control in our area. I just don't feel comfortable encouraging group get-togethers right now.

The happy hours will still show me as the host because the system requires a host, but I'm NOT going to plan anything for now.

FYI, my symptoms are very mild (yay vaccine!) but it's hard to sleep and I have a headache in the mornings. Also I can still taste food but nothing really appeals to me except a fried egg sandwich 🥪 🙃

Did you know that you can buy covid home tests at Walgreens & CVS? At Walgreens they are behind the counter and one box has 2 tests and cost $22.
