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.

Shadow and Dallas
UX Wizards Bay Area
San Jose, CA
This is a group for anyone interested in learning more about UX. I started this group to meet other UX enthusiasts in my area, and because I felt that most of the UX meetups I'd been attending were in San Francisco, and I was meeting more UX designers from San Jose who had also made the journey north!
Things I'm hoping to accomplish by starting this group:
- Opportunity for peer review (ie: bring your portfolios or work and we'll take time giving you honest feedback) <br>
- Opportunity for mentorship (maybe you are a mentor! maybe you are a mentee!)
- Place where you can bounce ideas around
- Place for potentially finding employers/talent

Salt and Pepper -Palo Alto Couples Aged 50+
Palo Alto, CA
Salt and Pepper is a group of welcoming, interested adults, aged 50 plus, looking to make friends and enjoy activities with other couples. Gatherings include a mix of new and familiar faces, with an opportunity to make long lasting friends. Our diverse group appreciates all walks of life, celebrating our differences while exploring common interests. We support each other and encourage healthy life transitions.
Membership in this group is about getting to know other couples and so we ask that members attend, as a couple, at least one activity each month. To maintain the dynamics of the group attendance without partner or bringing extra friends should be the exception. (Our midweek hikes are an exception and "singles" welcome)
Past events include hikes, museums, restaurants, theatre, music, Improv shows, garden tours, ranger talks, high teas, potlucks, art festivals, dancing, beachwalks, wine tastings, boardgame night, and more. We are currently scheduling events outdoors to keep risk of illness lower. There are a number of events scheduled so jump right in and RSVP for something soon!
Let's keep this safe for everyone. Please attend events if you have been vaccinated and not been with someone symptomatic or exposed to COVID. Be prepared to show proof of vaccination.
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.

Building community and friendships by enjoying all our neighborhood has to offer: park days, walks through the panhandle, drinks, food, and more! While there may be events held in other neighborhoods from time to time, the purpose of this group is to connect residents of Alamo Square and Hayes Valley (and neighborhoods in between).
Real profile photos are required. Three no shows without updating RSVPs will result in being removed from the group.

This group, members and guests, follow city mandates related to Covid-19.
Girls Rule!!!! For Women ages 50+
San Mateo, CA
SAFETY FIRST!!! This group is for ONLY FULLY vaccinated peninsula 50+ women.
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.
This Meetup is for women ONLY, ages 50+ who live on the peninsula. Please read the WHOLE description BEFORE you join this group.

Some of the events might be:
Monthly Book Club
Mah Jongg - American (unless someone can teach me another version)
Trying new restaurants
Male Strip Clubs (okay, that was a joke)
And anything else that might sound fun to you.
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
San Jose, CA
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.

Morgan Hill, CA
Welcome to Social Sisterhood.
Our mission is to provide a place for women to meet for fun and friendship at public events in a collaborative atmosphere. Currently, our active members are mostly over 55.
I believe a social group is an alliance of the members. It can thrive only through participation and I will do my best to make participation as easy as possible. As empowered members, you will be able to help form a varied line up of events that interest you. Participation will inform hosts as to what interests the membership so that we can hone the group to our needs.
In keeping with our mission, please
- tell us your true name,
- upload a photo of yourself
If you are unwilling to meet these requirements, please do not request membership. If you don't know how to upload a photo, an organizer will help you.
Covid Rules of the Road
We are now in a new phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of us have been vaccinated; some of us plan to be vaccinated; and some of us will elect not to be vaccinated. Each of us has to determine our personal level of risk when it comes to socializing. The purpose of this section is to openly communicate the "rules of the road" for hosting and attending events in this group.
Member hosts will determine whether attendees need to be vaccinated or not. Proof of vaccine should be summitted to the group organizer. Once submitted, you will not be asked to provide proof again to attend events unless the conditions for vaccination are updated by the CDC. Guests of members must meet these requirements, also.
By RSVP'ing "Yes" to an event, your attendance is basic courtesy barring an emergency. Letting your host know if something comes up at the last minute will surely be appreciated. Although there are times it can't be avoided, repeatedly dropping off an event on the day of the event for which you've signed up doesn't work for hosts and other members counting on you to help make events successful.
As with all social organizations, we are interdependent. Therefore, the usual courtesies apply. Further, this is a social group – it is not a business networking group or an opportunity to promote your business or sell goods or services to the membership.
** As of this edit, we are experiencing members reserving a spot and dropping out within 24 hours of the actual event. This is unfair to members on the wait list. In the future, members with a history of being an unreliable attendee will be moved to the wait list if one forms for the event. After all other members are moved up, you will be moved to the attending list if there is room. If there is a financial obligation associated with the event, payment will be required in advance. You may pay the host or the organizer by check or using a payment processor of the host's/organizer's choice in order to reserve a spot. If a payment processor is used, the bill will include processing fees.
Women guests are welcome to attend events with a member if the host has opened the event to guests. If not stated explicitly, events are for women only.
Periodically, an organizer may schedule a family event where spouses or children are included in which case feel free to bring them making sure to indicate the number of "guests" that will accompany you.
Guests must meet the same Covid vaccination rules mentioned above..
Dues will be billed after a 30-day trial for new members at the rate of $1.00 per month in a single non-refundable payment. Dues will be prorated to end in October when all members will pay dues for the upcoming year at a $12 per year rate. I will pay the Meetup fees out of the dues collected. Any remaining money will be used for the benefit of the members. The accounting will be made available to the membership when dues collection begins.
So there you have it. Join us. Once you have been with us for 30-days and have attended at lease 1 event, you can start hosting your own events. I hope to see you soon!
