What we're about

We are a friendly group of single, divorced, widowed and married women, (previously 40s or older, but if you're not afraid of hanging out with older chicks, then come join us, any agers) who live in the Maple Grove, Brooklyn Park, Plymouth, Golden Valley, Wayzata, Eden Prairie, Rogers and surrounding areas that are seeking girl time out. Come meet fun and positive friends to explore new restaurants, return to favorites, go on long walks in our neighborhood parks and woods and talk about what's been spinning around in our brains.

Just like the vintage photos on our banner, we come from all walks of life and wear all sorts of hats (metaphorically speaking), and yet we still like each other. We just don't like to drive all the way to St. Paul or downtown Minneapolis to socialize. Also, at every large event, you will find at least two or more first-timers, so don't think you will be trying to break into existing clicks. We are a very welcoming group!

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

Our group still has small meetups and that generally means 6 to 12 people at each event where we really get to know each other. It also makes being an organizer tough when people are no-shows. Please don't do that!!

Who can join: you must be a woman and that's it. If you are a guy and join, I will kick you out & ban you from trying to join again.

That said, a few of our activities - mainly trivia nights -are open to guys (your guy, brought with you, not a random, unknown guy), hence the 'GW' that might appear in a title & description ~ GW = Guys Welcome.

Let's imbibe with class at one of Wayzata's fancier restaurants: "6Smith" is right on the lake... Last time we met at the Roof Top bar (3 years ago!), let's hope it's good weather and do that again. It's a really nice place! www.6smith.com NOTE: these HH specials are only good inside at the bar until 6, and not at all on the downstairs patio or on the roof, so come early, grab a drink inside and we'll see where we can get a table outside. $4 Tap Beer: Michelob Golden Light Summit EPA Fulton Sweet Child of Vine ## Any Rail Mixed Drink ## $6 Spicy cheese curds Hand-cut sweet potato fries Two Oysters Rockefellar Double Dip French Fries $7 Good Wine and any rail Martini or Manhattan & more apps $8 Better Wine and even more apps Free Parking in Boatworks lot.
