Shadow and Dallas
Vintage Women of the South Bay
San Jose, CA
This is an amazing group of women that has been evolving and growing since 2009. Some of us are empty nesters and are asking ourselves, “Now what?” Some of us are between jobs or newly retired and are wondering what to do with our free time. Some of us are new to the area and want to grow our circle of friends. And some of us just want to leave the menfolk at home and enjoy a girls’ day out.
For me, most of my friends and family had moved away. Someone mentioned meet up and this is the first group I found, and so happy I did. I met women my own age right in my own backyard that I may never have met on my own. Life is so much richer with friends and a strong sense of community.
We enjoy activities such as movies, Bunco, chat nights, plays, golf, brunches, art festivals, day trips and morning walks. And if there is something you would like to do but don’t see it here, you are welcome to host your own activity.
Join us if you like to laugh and try new things.
PLEASE NOTE: You must be female and over 50 to join. A profile photo of yourself is required when joining Vintage Women so we can recognize you at events.
Mountain View Downtowners 20-30s
Mountain View, CA
New to Mountain View? Been here awhile but still want to meet people?
All are welcome, but closer proximity tends to make for better connections so this will be a group for those who want to hangout downtown MV and expand social circles.
This is a casual, weekly group to hangout, meet new people, and find some fun. Break off for awhile and rejoin. This is a no obligation / no pressure to stay longer than you want to type group.
For each week… a day, time, location and topic will be posted. Sounds good? See you there.
Laps, dinner & drinks
Relax & games near city hall
Picnic at the park
Tech side projects mixer
Crafts and drafts (beer that is)
BTW: Of course it’s awkward to meet new people and not all connections will make for perfect friends but let’s just see how it goes.
Also in order to get more diverse crowds I’ll try using max attendees and add folks via waitlists. We shall see how that works out.
1st priority - goes to getting an even number of men to women. (Send me a message if you want to clarify what you identify as.)
2nd priority - goes to regular/ repeat attendees
3rd priority - goes to those who live in Mountain View.
* I’ll try to balance the waitlists accordingly but it’s a tricky task so apologies if you are waitlisted too often. (Send me a message if this occurs too much)

Photography Walks & Workshops in San Francisco by Casey
San Francisco, CA
Let's explore San Francisco by taking pictures (and videos) and learn new techniques along the way. Plus get outside for fresh air and exercise too! About me: I have been doing photography for over 35 years and used to shoot weddings, portraits, commercial work for decades. I am an expert in still photography having started with the Nikon F4 film camera plus the Hasselblad 503cx medium format film camera in the 90s, then transitioned to digital with the Nikon D1x and D2x in early 2000, and more recently changed to all Canon gear with the Canon R5 and 90D and M50 digital cameras. I also actively use the Canon XF400 and G60 camcorders for creating online content for my YouTube channel "Casey On Location". Because I enjoy photography and filming, I can also share my knowledge with others who share the same passion. I am a long-time resident of San Francisco since 1980 so I know quite a bit about The City by the bay. So join the group and we can shoot images and videos together at interesting spots in San Francisco, learn a thing or two from each other, and hopefully get in some sunshine and exercise too.

Hello Girls!!!! Get out of your pajamas and let's have some fun!!!! It is time to get out and mingle. You can do it!!!! Some of us have gotten a little too comfortable staying home this past year.

There will be NO RSVP fee for any event. BUT, being a Meetup organizer is not free. I will be charging an annual $12.00 Non-refundable Membership fee. The Membership fee will be due and collected at your first event (unless I get Venmo or PayPal setup) and then it will be good for one year from the date you paid. This fee is non-refundable, meaning, you will not get reimbursed for whatever reason, including this Meetup group gets delete or cancelled for whatever reason and/or it you get delete from the group. If you join this group and do not attend any events within the first 4 months of signing up, you will be removed from the group. Even though you have paid Membership fees, you are still responsible for showing up at the events that you RSVP for. If you have 3 no shows, you will be removed from the group on your 3rd no show. If you cancel at the last minute, meaning, within in a couple of hours before the meetup event starts or you message me after the meetup starts, you will be removed. Considerate people only please.
If an event is hosted at a private house, the owner of the house is in charge of their guest list. They can pick and choose who they would like to attend. This might mean that a private home event might automatically go into a waitlist and the owner of the home will be able to create the guest list themselves (meaning, they can pick and choose who comes into their home).
IMPORTANT: I am not liable or responsible for you in anyway, shape or form for any event that you attend within this group. You are responsible for yourself at any events posted in this group. When you RSVP for an event, you are in agreeance to this information. No outside guests allowed at events posted on this Meetup.
San Jose Mid-Week Hikers Group

This group was started to accommodate hikers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to go on organized hikes during the week. Whether due to mid-week days off, flexible work schedules, retirement or kids in school, if you have days/time off during the week and want to get out and enjoy the wonderful hiking we have in the bay area, this is the group for you. All hiking levels are encouraged to join and we welcome members of other hiking groups in the area as well. We welcome feedback and suggested hikes from members and we keep our organized hikes to fairly small groups (less than 20). We try to schedule several hikes each week. Our Hiking adventures tend to be 4-10 miles in length with varied levels of elevation change. They last between two and six hours normally. Please do not be discouraged if you are new to hiking. You can start by picking a shorter, easier outing.
