    Meet new friends over coffee! This spacious cafe on 57th st. (between 3rd Ave and Lex) will give us room to meet, and it's quiet enough to chat comfortably. Just show up, look for me (I'll have a meetup sign), and get introduced to other professional women in the city looking to expand their social circle and have fun! Optional: Take the free personality quiz here, http://www.chicchickfriends.com and remember your result. Then you can find out which girls are in your top 4 friend compatibility matches! It's a fun ice breaker as well. Make sure you RSVP and see you there! -Julie

  • New friends before the New Year! Coffee to meet new girl friends!

    To attend, you must RSVP, take the quiz at http://www.chicchickf... (http://www.chicchickfriends.com), and pay your $5 dues. Don't show up to the event otherwise, no exceptions! Hey Girls, This is one of our most popular events because it's an easy way to meet a small group of awesome new friends like yourself, whether you're brand new to the group or a long-time member! Because I introduce you all from the minute you walk up to our circle, everyone feels welcomed and included. Unlike other groups, you won't have to wander around a huge venue looking for people to talk to in this group! We'll welcome you from the start :) Expand your social circle and get some warm after-work coffee or hot cocoa during this cold weather! This is an easy way to be introduced to everyone and feel comfy meeting new people, so you can be friends all year! Before you RSVP, take our quiz here and post your result on your profile (and post it when you RSVP also or you won't get your colored beads or bracelet). www.chicchickfriends.com Let's meet up to grab some coffee! Low key meetup just to meet other girls like yourself. DETAILS: When you RSVP, you'll be asked two questions. Make sure you answer them! These questions contain the details of where to meet the group. I'm only waiting for 5 minutes after 7pm! So if you can't make it right then, don't RSVP yes. Otherwise you will miss the group. We'll then grab some coffee or tea and chat. Please bring money for your own coffee or anything you plan to buy at the coffee place. NOTE: If our group is too huge for the venue (as it often is) we will move to a larger venue in the area, perhaps a lounge (so you'll want to be over 21 to attend this). So it's important you get there on time so you don't miss us. If you can't make it on time, please don't RSVP. There is a small fee for this meetup. This lets me know you plan on coming. It also pays for you Chic Chick dues, your beads or bracelet (which shows you your most compatible personality matches, the web site and meet up fees I pay, my time for organizing and introducing you all. A lot of the girls I know have met their long-time best friends from this group -- trust me, it is a very small price to pay for what you get in return. Please bring money for your coffee or anything you plan to buy at the coffee place. See you then! :D -Julie
