What we're about

This is a group for the introverts of the area to get together, have some fun, and make new friends. We have some regularly scheduled events - a monthly boardgame meetup and a monthly movie meetup. Other events are scheduled as we find interesting things to do during the year.

A few rules:

This is not a dating group. We're here for friends and fun, this is not OK Cupid :)Please conduct yourself in a mature manner, and any harassment or inappropriate behavior by members will result in being expelled from the group.

We want everyone to feel welcome. Racist remarks, Sexist remarks, hate speech, and/or making people uncomfortable will not be tolerated.

Please only RSVP for meetups that you plan to attend. If you did RSVP for a meetup that you are not able to attend, please update your RSVP no less than 24 hours before the scheduled event to allow the organizer to update plans and to allow any who might be on a waiting list to be notified that there is room in the event for them.

Board Game Night

Location visible to members

Our monthly board game night - board games can be a great icebreaker and way to make new friends. We have a large selection of games here, but please bring any games you’d like to share with the group. We usually play a wide variety of games, from classics like Monopoly to party games to heavier strategy games. Bring along some party snacks, too, if you’d like, but don’t feel obligated. We do have cats, just a heads-up in case anyone is allergic.

Independence Grove Summer Concert Series: Rockin' Fenderskirts

Independence Grove Forest Preserve

Every summer, I like to schedule this concert series for multiple groups. They are a lot of fun and very relaxing. The cafe' stays open later on concert nights, but feel free to bring snacks and they allow BYOB. Bring a lawn chair, and as many guests as you want. I sit a little farther away from the stage in an area that's less crowded so that we can hear each other talk, etc. I'll post details on that closer to concert dates. I usually get there a little early about an hour before the concerts start to get a good seating area for us, and some time for us to chat before the music starts. All concerts start at 7:30. If you get to the park before 5pm, parking is free, but after 5pm it's $10 per carload for the concerts. Remember to bring cash for the parking fee.
