What we're about

This group is for friendly people ages 21-39 who want to make new friends in the Vienna, Fairfax, Clarendon and broader NOVA area. Our cover photo maps out the location of most of our events. We will try to have a monthly dinner, as well as other local events.

The expectation for a dinner Meetup is for everyone to order and pay for a meal. The expectation for a happy hour Meetup is for everyone to order a drink and/or an appetizer and pay for their order. The expectation for tipping on these items is the industry standard of 20%. 15% is so 1999, and manners are so 2018. Thank you in advance for being a part of our well-mannered group!

Please note: This group does strongly discourage no-shows, especially for events requiring reservations by the host. If people change their RSVP, or make some effort to let the host know they have to drop out (even last minute), we will understand.
If you do not let the host know or do not show up, we will mark you as a “no-show.”
2 no-shows = gets a warning
3 no-shows = is removed from the group
