What we're about

Enjoy kayaking, biking, happy hours, and other events with like minded individuals in the DC Metro area. Members are only invited if they are easy going, no drama, no mean people. I also manage some charitable benefits and include them in the calendar if you like to 'party with a purpose'. Typically, these events are international, young professional happy hour types of events. I have always been an environmentalist and will add 'green' events into the mix. We are a fun, interesting group of people who get along well. (Think Cheers meets Friends combined with Sex in the City). For those who have attended, especially the happy hours you know how much personality there is in this group. I look forward to meeting you if we have not met already. I try to find inexpensive but fun events to attend. Please feel free to recommend an event, I am always open to feedback. This group is growing quickly and I am looking for 2 reliable volunteers to assist, one would manage the happy hours. Contact me if you are interested in managing some events. In the case of charitable events proceeds go to the 501(c)3 organization(s). I am looking into sponsors now to cover the cost of running the Meetup and to possibly give members freebies.
