Peninsula Ladies Social Group
San Mateo, CA
Intelligent, career-driven, hardworking, and in desperate need of a girls' night out. Does this describe you? If so, you're in the right place! Living in the Bay Area as a professional woman is great, except once in awhile you'd like to take a break from work, or the significant other, etc. and just relax and enjoy conversation and a glass of wine over dinner with other similarly situated women. Whether you'd like to expand your social network, are new in the area and want to meet potential friends, or you just want to sit back and enjoy some much needed girlfriend time, this group may be just perfect for you. Monthly meet ups include casual dinners, happy hours, brunch, movies, hiking, bowling, etc. will be set up for all of us to unwind, take a break from everyday drama, and just enjoy each other's company. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
We do require a photo of you on your Meetup profile so we can look for you when we get together. This is a private group, members are not visible to non-members. (You can have unique photos for each of your meetup groups.)

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.

Coastal Women of a Certain Vintage
Welcome! This is a group for women 50+ ... If you're looking to make new friends, find women to share activities you love, introduce us to new ones or discover new things with us, this is for you. We're open to all kinds of activities -- dinner, brunch, movies, bunco, chat nights, book club, wine tasting, game nights, golf, art festivals, day trips, Broadway shows, weekend walks and when the days are longer in the summer, weeknight walks (plus anyone who wants can organize weekday activities but I work full-time - very appreciated!). And if there is something you would like to do, please please suggest it.
I started this in January 2017 and have said from the start, we are not a group of events, we are a group of friends! Join us - we'd love to have you.
We do require a photo of you on your Meetup profile so we can look for you when we're getting together. (For those with concerns, this is a private group, and it is possible to have a unique photo for each of your different Meetup groups.) And sorry, but no soliciting allowed.
Lastly, Covid vaccination (2 weeks past final shot) is required to attend any in-person Coastal Women event. Most members have shared their proof of vaccination with Erin, but if you haven't, please send via text or email. (Message Erin if you need contact info.)
50's Plus Active Singles Community
San Luis Obispo, CA
This group is dedicated to those individuals who are single 50 years old or older. This is not a dating site. We are a community group and relationships have developed organically via this group. Some of these relationships turned into long-term relationships or marriage. It is important to us that they remain part of our family and are able to continue to attend our events. Our basic goal is to join forces to get out and about, meet new friends, attend social events, share our lives and hopefully make an impact on our community. The concept that created this group was based on those individuals who are alone wanting to get out and spend time with others without worrying about the strain or craziness of dating, courting or seeking a long-term mate. We want to get out and have fun, make new friends, be active and just be ourselves. Also, we are NOT to discuss politics; this group is not the place.
Our vision is to create a network of people who care about people. We are positive adults who love to socialize, interact and impact others and are seeking like-minded individuals who want to get out and have some fun support the needs of one another. If you have any ideas for an event, the organizers welcome them.
We do ask for a small contribution of $5.00 annually, this can be paid online or to one of the organizers ( Sharon or Jim) by check or cash within your 30-day trial period. These dues cover the cost of the website, support our team and our members for special events and at times funds for individual needs.
Be sure to check out our "Pages" for specific information about our group!

Mensa / San Francisco Region
San Francisco, CA
This MeetUp provides a dynamic way for members of San Francisco Regional Mensa to get the latest on Mensa events in the Bay Area and to more easily host their own Mensa events. The idea is that by eliminating the very long lead time now necessary to post things to the Intelligencer, we will have more, and more varied, events on the calendar.
You MUST be a *current* member of Mensa to join this group. When you click "Join Us" (above right), please include your full name AND your Mensa membership number so that we can verify your membership.
If you'd like to become a member of Mensa, please go to the SFRM website, http://www.sfmensa.org/, to find out how to qualify, or to locate a testing session near you. In the meantime, you can join us in our San Francisco Mensa Friends Meetup where we have events open to non-members.
Organizers and Event Organizers can post events directly to our Meetup site, but Meetup no longer allows non-organizers to post events directly.
If you are a member of our Meetup group, but not an organizer, and you wish to have an event posted, click on "Suggest a new Meetup", or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure and be specific as to what the event is, including a full description, date, time, and location. If you'd like the event to recur on a regular basis (e.g., 3rd Wednesday of the month), be sure to specify that as well.
We hope to see you soon!
Alamo Square/Hayes Valley Meetup Group
San Francisco, CA
Hi there! This group is looking to bring new and old residents of Alamo Square/Hayes Valley together. Members should live in the neighborhoods represented here (Hayes Valley/Alamo Square and neighborhoods in between/close by) and be 21+. It's an open group but tailored for women in their late 20s/30s/40s.
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 with your face are required. Three no shows without updating RSVPs will result in being removed from the group. If after several months you haven’t RSVP’ed to any event you may be removed from the group. Meetings are in-person only, unless otherwise mandated by the city, and may be held indoors. The city of San Francisco requires proof of vaccine against Covid-19 to dine or drink indoors. This group, members and guests, follow city mandates related to Covid-19.
45+ South Bay Active & Social Singles
San Jose, CA
DEAR PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS, <br>
THIS GROUP IS FOR MEMBERS AGES 45 and up. IF YOU ARE NOT WITHIN THIS AGE RANGE, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY. <br>
YOU MUST ALSO HAVE A RECENT AND CLOSE-UP PHOTO OF YOURSELF (just you, please, no other people) AS YOUR PROFILE PICTURE (we use this photo to recognize you in large settings and for safety reasons). ANYONE WHO WAS ACCEPTED BY USING A PHOTO REPRESENTING A " MUCH YOUNGER VERSION OF SELF" NOT SHOWING THEIR CURRENT AGE AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP. NO PICTURES WITH CHILDREN OR OTHER PEOPLE.
The 45+ South Bay Social Singles (45+SBSS) is all about making friends with other singles, getting to know them and becoming familiar with each other in a safe and fun environment.
Since its foundation, the 45+ has created long lasting relationships of many kinds. Although this is not a match-making program, we celebrate the romantic connections that have taken place in the past and are sure to continue in the future. Members that fall under this category are encouraged to remain in the group, even after they get marry.
We pride ourselves in considering this group part of our extended family and once a member of our family, you will ALWAYS be a member of our family… Unless you do something really "nutty" in which case we will have to let you go.
We monitor our membership and accept new members only after we feel comfortable that the previously accepted members have accommodated to us, attended events, etc…
Every few months, we remove members who have not participated in any events for more than 4 months, are constantly changing their RSVP at the last minute or have more than 3 "no shows." Then we start accepting new members again.
Please, it is very important that you read the section named "Pages" so that you become familiar with our rules and regulations to decide whether or not we are a fit for you before requesting for membership.
We do a variety of events: hikes, live theater, happy hours, karaoke, museums, music in the park, dancing… We are always looking for new ways to improve to create a more diverse calendar, to listen to members' suggestions and to do a lot of research to find fun activities to perform.
If you get accepted into our group, give us a try by attending several of our events. You will not regret it.
Hope to meet you soon!
"Amendment" to our policies: <br>
There is a strong group made of few members that have been loyal to our events, attending many of them and/or helping us organizing them as volunteers. These members have also shown a great deal of responsibility by showing up to those events they signed up for or have changed their RSVP few times and with enough time to allow others from the wait list to sign up. They are committed to make this group a nice place to come to.
We reward these fabulous people by having preference to events when their names are in the waiting list. The organizers of the events can decide which member can be moved up the list to attend events.
Thank you and hope to meet you in future events :)

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.
The following are just some of the events that might be happening soon. If you have any suggestions or hear of a community event that you might think will be fun, please let me know. Also, if you wish to ever host, please let me know.
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.
Running a Meetup group 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 (no matter what), 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 decide to rsvp and you don't show up (no show) or cancel at the last minute, meaning less than 24 hrs, you will be deleted from this group. Please be considerate.
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. You MUST have a clear picture posted to join this group.
