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.

Bay Area Single Boomers Social Meetup

These will include dances, parties, movies, dining, wine tasting events, entertainment of all kinds, happy hours, seminars, karaoke, outings, retreats, cruises, trips and more. We want to create an atmosphere where people will be very comfortable meeting new acquaintances, making friends and sharing experiences. Meet new people, have fun, open yourself to new opportunities.

No-Show Policies: If you RSVP that you are attending an event, that is a promise that you are attending the event in person.

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 email@example.com. 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!
Explore The Bay (ETB) - Social Group
Mountain View, CA
Meet some new friends while we Explore the Bay together. This group is about providing value to the community, having fun, exploring new places, and meeting new friends. We are a social group of singles and couples who enjoy exploring the wonderful Bay Area of Northern California. In fact, according to the Meetup.com algorithm, we are the most active "Social" group in the Bay Area (pre-pandemic). Join us as we explore cool bars, night clubs, restaurants, museums, vineyards, hiking adventures, house parties, etc. We will also offer some community volunteer opportunities. We will LEVERAGE our group to receive discounts, extended happy hours, and other great perks that an individual cannot get. Note that we move the party all around the Bay Area to keep our events interesting and to continually attract new quality citizens. Join and you will meet some quality, new friends. WHO CAN JOIN Adults 21 and over. Our members range in age from 21 to 80+. Single people and people in relationships are in this group. This is not a singles group. If you don't feel comfortable about being around people from different age groups, then you either are just trying to hook up or you haven't grown up yet. Note that we don't and won't tolerate any discrimination with respect to race, religion, age, sex, or gender. A profile with a name or name abbreviation is required. Web site names or phrases cannot be used in lieu of a name. REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN THE GROUP Personal photo required where the person is recognizable. Action shots, group photos, and topless pics are not permitted. Must be an adult age 21 and over. Members who are admitted must read these rules including the disclaimer at the end which states members are forfeiting some rights. EXPECTED MEMBER CONDUCT 1. Members are expected to read the event description and any updates posted by the Event Organizer before attending an event. This helps eliminate the need to ask questions that have already been explicitly stated in the event description. It also keeps expectations in alignment with the event format/structure. 2. In order to receive important emails sent from Event Organizers, make sure that you have the following setting options enabled for this group: ‘Announcement about a specific Meetup’ and ‘Announcement to members about the group’. 3. When interested in attending an event, each member will need to secure a spot online. Note that if they later decide that they want to bring a guest to an event that they already signed up for that is full, they will either need to lose their spot and go to the end of the waiting list or they will need to encourage their guest to join the group and add their name to the waiting list. Please do not contact the event organizer and ask to add a guest. This creates too much work. 4. We encourage active membership. Note that we sometimes remove inactive members from the group, especially organizers from other groups that haven't attended ETB events in a while. GROUNDS FOR REMOVAL FROM THE GROUP 1. Any behavior that causes a problem for another member of the group. Not limited, but including the following: being touchy, overly aggressive, creepy, excessive gossiping or any behavior that causes bad drama. 2. Excessive no shows in relation to the number of events attended. Note that we take attendance at most events. Members are responsible to monitor their own registration status. When you are on a waiting list, don't assume that you won't get into an event. If a member makes other plans, they are responsible to change their registration from either the attending list or waiting list to the not attending list. 3. Repeatedly bailing out of events on the day the event is scheduled. A high frequency of this behavior can lead to being removed from the group. Note that if you bail out the same day of an event, you will be marked as a "no show". 4. Sending emails to members they have not met before for the purposes of dating. This isn't a singles group nor is it a dating website. 5. Sending spam emails to members to promote a business, event, etc. without permission of the main organizer. 6. Freeloaders who take advantage of the generosity of others are removed from the group. This includes attending an event at a venue and not purchasing anything. Note that venues staff up to support our events. If the revenue isn't high, then they lose money and then organizers have to volunteer more time to find a new venue. 7. Posting comments on an event page or using the "Start a conversation..." functionality to promote a business, event, etc. without permission of the main organizer. 8. Not having a picture where they are recognizable. Members who are not recognizable in their ETB profile picture are subject to removal. 9. Any behaving in a manner that suggests a sense of entitlement such as requesting organizers to volunteer too much of their valuable time. 10. Excessive posting of comments or negative comments on event wall-space. This requires the Event Host to volunteer additional time. It also causes members to waste time looking for important event updates. Note that there is no need for members to post why they will not be attending an event. 11. Texting or calling the Organizer for any reason other than trying to find the group during a meetup event. Note that the number is provided as a courtesy to facilitate finding the group only. No exceptions. 12. Showing up to an event without securing a spot (crashing). Note that members are not allowed to bring a guest to an event unless they secure a spot online for their guest. Some events are limited to members only. 13. Bringing children or pets to an event unless the event explicitly states that they are permitted. 14. Any members that copy the content of this group including the charter of the group (on this page), event descriptions, event updates, our events, etc. for the benefit of organizing events with other groups will be removed from the group. Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
