What we’re about
Welcome & looking forward to getting to know you!
If you are young at heart and wise in the head, balanced, healthy minded individual, and you want to network and have some fun in the Philadelphia area, then you have come to the right place! This is not a singles group, anyone can join!
We have a lot of different types of events, and most of them are designed for our members to meet new friends, network, and enjoy much of what Philly has to offer. These events may vary from interesting cultural events or live music, to simply having fun & meeting new people at a Center City happy hour.
You get to choose which events you want to attend, but please RSVP whenever possible so we know to expect you even if you plan to attend events that do not have a set capacity limit.
As terrific as MeetUp is to meet new people, Facebook seems to be an easier way to stay in touch, so I've also set-up a Facebook group called "Philly Social Adventures" that is geared to Philly area MeetUp friends, here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/574330306077914/
Looking forward to meeting you!
PS. If you have some ideas you'd like to suggest as MeetUp events or if you would like to become one of our Assistant Organizers, please let me know by emailing me though the MeetUp system and include your contact information as well as the event information.
Upcoming events (4+)See all
- Monday BOARD GAMES & HAPPY HOUR is now a thing -- at Glory Beer Bar & KitchenGlory Beer Bar & Kitchen, Philadelphia , PA
"Monday Board Games Night is the most fun you can have in Philly on a Monday"
location: Glory Beer Bar & Kitchen (126 Chestnut Street in Old City)
time: 5pm - 10pm ..... cost: FREE to attend
Starting Monday February 12th, we'll be moving our Board Games Night to Glory Beer Bar and adding Happy Hour! The entire evening will run from 5pm to 10pm, starting with Happy Hour which runs until 6:30pm. We will be setting up on the 2nd Floor, a large space with big tables and our own bar where we can order food & drinks!
Glory Beer Bar & Kitchen (126 Chestnut Street)
Ideally located in Old City on Chestnut Street between Front & 2nd Streets, Glory feels both old & new. The exposed brick walls harken to Philly's colonial past, while their selection of many beers, wines, and food are a perfect fit for today's tastes. The affordable menu welcomes all palates, including a number of vegetarian and vegan options! And the tables on the second floor look large enough for both food & board gaming at the same time.
Glory Beer Bar & Kitchen has a revolving menu of 36 beers on tap featuring a variety of American and Local Breweries while also offering a wide array of International and Seasonal favorites. In addition to the extensive beer offerings, Glory has a dedicated tap system to red, white and rosé wine. Additionally, skilled bartenders can create a cocktail of your choosing using the finest spirits and freshest ingredients.
I'm seeing these Mondays as the perfect way to start the week -- beers or dinner with friends, plus chill and enjoy board games, maybe meeting some new friends! Kinda what MeetUp is all about, right?
I'll be adding details in the Comments and please feel free to also comment or ask questions. Additionally, you are welcome to mention which games you plan to bring in the comments as well.
Can't wait, see you there!
PS. regarding board games, If you'd like to join us on FB at Board Game World, we're at:
- Comedy Night Mondays at Ladder 15Ladder 15, Philadelphia, PA
Hi Group - Mondays now have Live Comedy at Ladder 15! Each week will be a rotating line-up of local & regional comedian headliners. The early set starts at 7pm and the late set starts at 9pm.
Plus there is no cover charge for this series, but we're hoping that you'll enjoy the affordable food & drinks that Ladder 15 features while enjoying the show.
Our friend Andy is our Host, and feel free to ask for him to be connected to sit with other MeetUp friends at this event.
Life can be too stressful, so why not begin the week with friends, laughs, and a couple of drinks? I'm up for that!
- TUESDAY Board Games Night at Ladder 15 (1528 Sansom Street)Ladder 15, Philadelphia, PA
They said "No way, it will never happen"
They were WRONG
Yes, Tuesday Board Games Night becomes a thing!
We'll start gathering at Ladder 15 at 6pm and we can essentially stay as late as we'd like (bar closes at either midnight or 2am, not sure).
In addition to board games and affordable food & drinks, there is also KARAOKE!
note: There will still be Monday Board Games Night at The Bourse, but with changes happening there, I felt it was prudent to add an extra night for us.
This will be a FREE event to attend, and I will bring some board games but I'm also counting on many of you to bring some as well. There are pluses & minuses to every Board Games Night location we've been at, and I am sure Ladder 15 is no exception; however what has drawn me to set us up here on Tuesdays is:
- better & longer gaming hours for us
- better & more regular food menu (affordably priced) plus a full bar for the drinkers in our group
- terrific Center City location on the 1500 block of Sansom Street
- last but not least, friendly staff that is welcoming & wanting to be understanding to the needs of our group
Wow, I'm excited & hope you are too! Yes its a free event, but please RSVP so we know to expect you for the 1st Night. And if you are bringing board games, you are welcome to mention it in the Comments below.
see you there!
