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.

WS Women's Friday HH at The Lookout at 4:30

Needs a location

This place doesn’t take reservations, so hopefully we can grab a couple tables outside on their big patio, weather permitting! We will get there by 4:30. Please change your RSVP as soon as possible if you can’t make it so people on the waitlist can come.

REMEMBER: This is a free meetup and all we ask of you is to show up when you say you will.

  1. If you are going to be more than 20 minutes late, please don't RSVP. Instead, contact another attendee via meetup message that evening to see if there's still space. Or you can show up and take your chances.

  2. RSVPs will close 3 hours before the starting time of any event. If you are still marked as going/yes after that and you don't show (and you don't contact me to explain), that's 1 strike. Three strikes/no-shows and I WILL remove you from the group for 3 months.

Edina Art Fair

Needs a location

The Edina Art Fair is back on this year. Set on the cross streets of 50th and France, join me in checking out this annual event; it's fun to window shop even if you don't buy! Details on where to meet sent later.
