What we're about

Have you found that it's hard to meet real friends on the Internet? Come meet some new people at a place where everyone is welcome and you don't have to worry about being judged or playing status or popularity games. We help people meet friends that they want to hang out with outside of group events and have helped form more friendships and relationships than any other meetup group. Our events are so great that people don't want to leave when they are over.

Meetup groups can cost quite a bit to run so please help us pay our group expenses by donating at:

Every little bit helps and it keeps the group free for everyone!

All events are governed by the official Meetup conduct policy:

VR and IRL let's go exploring!

Online event

Let's hang out and explore worlds in VRchat together!

We can play games and solve puzzles together, explore beautiful worlds, see a sunrise or sunset on another planet, and experience the beautiful art and creativity in the virtual world.

𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙙
Attendees will need VRchat and a VRchat account (both free). You can attend via PC only, but a PC-connected VR system is recommended.

Please download the VRchat app before the event, make your account, and get into the game to test it and understand basic functions. Access the menu, click the Social button, then click Search. Type my name "Shawarmachine" without quotes and search. Click on my profile and send a friend request by clicking Add Friend. Please send me a message through Meetup letting me know that you've sent a friend request.

When the event begins, go to the same social menu in game again, click on my profile picture in your list of online friends, and join me. If you don't see me in the list immediately, check back in a minute or so as sometimes the social menu is a little bit slow on updating.
