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)

Single Boomers are an underserved group. Most clubs and events cater to a younger crowd.
Single Boomers need more places to dance, mingle and maybe make that special connection in classy locations.
We wanted to start a group to help Single Boomers (or 45 plus) to make the most of events and activities that will be created and presented just for them.
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. We are friends helping friends on this new journey we are all taking in life and learning to have fun again! Most of all change your life in a way you never expected!

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.)
East Bay Breweries
San Ramon, CA
One of my favorite past time when I lived in the UK was spending an afternoon in a pub beer garden with friends. Not many pubs in the East Bay, but lots of great breweries and bars.
This is a group for anyone who want to take a few hours one evening or at the weekend to try new beers or enjoy a current favorite, who wants to make new friends and enjoy laughing about life.
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!
South Bay Lovelies (& Mommies) That Brunch!

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.)
San Francisco Social Networking

Building community and friendships by enjoying all our neighborhood has to offer: park days, walks through the panhandle, drinks, food, and more!

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!
EleRatch - Oakland
Black Women - 30+ who are successful, like to travel, and a nice balance of bourgeois and ratchet.
This is an ACTIVE group. Please do not join to browse and not participate as inactive members, no-shows and those who cancel at the last minute are removed.
Join me as we embark on a year to remember!
I’ve searched meetup and didn’t see anything active that’s close to what I’m looking for. I’d just like to meet a group of women with the intention of befriending a few who are up to trying different things. Basically looking for my tribe! I’m new to the area and now that the outside in Cali is about to fully open up I would love a packed social calendar to match it.
Would love to sync with positive women, who are doing good yet also leveling up, who have fun, are elegant and a lil ratchet (hence the name EleRatch — lol) who aren’t flakes, open to trying new experiences and love exploring the city and other areas.
SLO Shared Shenanigans
San Luis Obispo, CA
I’m a single working professional that wants to have a good time when I’m not working and explore new things around the area. I believe events are more fun with a group so if you hear of anything you think would be fun hit me up I’ll add it. Hope to see more of you out and about. Let’s go out and enjoy life together. Open to anyone, however most events will probably be 21 and older.
