What we're about

WELCOME !

This group is for all Twin Cities metro women 50-years young and older -- and those pushing 50.

Single, married, divorced, separated, engaged. Professionals, stay-at-home moms, and grandmas. Any religious affiliation, any culture, any orientation, and any political ideology. Early-birds and night owls. Coffee sippers and heel kicker-uppers. Extroverts and introverts. Book worms and binge-watchers. The outdoorsy and the indoorsy. Animal lovers and those who never have pet hair on their black clothes. And any other category that isn't represented above. Everyone is welcome.

We hope this group will nurture aquaintanceships that may turn into friendships, common interests that may turn into new social circles, and the idea that sometimes you just might need a little support, fun, and adventure in this fast-paced, exciting, big, vast, amazing, wonderful thing called life.

Everyone who joins will be made an event organizer with the right to create any type of event. There will be no rules as to the type of event because we are all adults. Of course, we ask everyone to respect one another and choose to create events accordingly.

We would like to keep generally taboo topics out of this community like political agendas and Coke vs. Pepsi. But we have created this group to be open and inclusive so you might find others who want to get together to drink only Coke without any purposeful exclusion or offense toward Pepsi drinkers. If you feel that an event is somehow inappropriate, just let the Group Co-Organizers know and our committee of founding members will review it. But be realistic. And please be respectful and kind.

While there may be a small group of founders, this group belongs to the members.

Winter Lights at the Arb - Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

Who's up for a brisk walk? Here's what the MLA web site has to say: Stroll through the gardens to find magical winter light displays. Buy a s'mores kit to use over a roaring bonfire, warm up with cocoa in the Oswald Visitor's Center and admire the Arboretum's 25-foot poinsettia trees, as well as thematically decorated evergreen trees. http://arbwinter.umn.edu/ Maybe we can figure out how to get a few car pools going from the east side of town. I can take 3 people, 4 if someone wants to sit in the middle back. If there are a few people that want to meet mid way for dinner, we could consolidate cars and leave a few in a restaurant parking lot in Eagan or Bloomington.

UPDATE, See event description: Black Friday Dinner

The Happy Gnome

Need to find another venue. Happy Gnome no longer takes reservations as of Oct 1. Our party is too big to stand and hope for a table. Watch here for the new location. For those of you who don't have a Black Friday shopping mania tradition, let's get together a take a big breath before the holiday madness begins. Even if you do take part in Black Friday, come and decompress after your day of crowd pushing and deal grabbing. https://www.thehappygnome.com/
